Skanderbeg statue, Pristina

2.0
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.

  • Even if everyone know that the original statue is on Tirana main square it is nice to find it here in Pristina. Many folkloriqur groups are meeting here on the Weekend.  more »
  • When you're in Pristina one comes past bad around the statue. It is located in the Centre. The statue is nothing special, but the stories behind Skanderbeg are quite interesting.

Where to stay in Pristina

Most accommodations in Pristina lie within its compact center, enabling easy access to the young capital's attractions and vibrant cafe culture. Although the city receives few vacationers, there is a relatively large number of luxury hotels, including four- and five-star establishments. These mainly cater to business travelers, particularly from international governmental organizations, but provide comfort for any guest. If traveling on a budget, consider one of the wallet-friendly hostels; you'll find both dorm-style and private rooms.
