Tirana's main square and one of the largest squares in Europe. Here you'll find many popular attractions in the city such as the Museum of History and the Opera. One of the coolest things about the square that many people don't realise is that all of the tiles which make up the patchwork floor are made from different types of rock from mountains all across the country.

Best public square in the Balkans! Literally in the center of Tirana, it represents the heart of the capital and of the country. New and old Albania are right there!

En el centro de la plaza flamea la bandera roja y negra de Albania y el monumento ecuestre del héroe nacional Skanderbeg. Se puede caminar por allí, sacar fotos o descansar un rato. Alrededor están el museo de Historia Nacional, la Ópera y del otro lado la mezquita Mezquita Et'hem Bey. Es un buen lugar para empezar a conocer los rincones de esta ciudad.
