Skanderbeg statue, Pristina

(100+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
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.
