Skanderbeg statue, Pristina
(2/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Built atop a structure that resembles a traditional Albanian hat, Skanderbeg statue was lifted in 2001, paying homage to a 15th-century hero who fought off the Ottoman empire for decades. Skanderbeg prevented enemy forces from penetrating deeper into Western Europe and played a major role in formation of Albania's national consciousness. A small plaza surrounds the statue, serving as a meeting point for locals. Snap a photo of this complex of governmental buildings and flags centered around this important national monument.

  • It is a statue stands in the corner, the middle of pedestrian Mother Teresa Street, opposite the National Theatre square resembles. The image in the 15th century, as the monarchs of Albania bucked to the Ottoman Empire and defended the independent ethnic hero Skanderbeg. Marble pedestal large statue over the body, it was good. Souvenir photos are only one.
