Skanderbeg is the national hero of Albania, and in Skanderbeg Square, the main central square in Tirana, you can find an enormous statue dedicated to this historical character. Skanderbeg led successful uprisings against the Ottoman armies during the medieval era, and fought for Albanian independence. Before his statue was placed here after the fall of communism, a statue of Enver Hoxha stood here, and before that, one of Joseph Stalin.

Skanderbeg Statue is located in the middle of the city so missing it would be almost impossible. Skanderbeg is an important figure in Albanian history, as he lead a rebellion against the Ottoman Empire. The National Museum and Opera are located just next to the monument.

The Albanians are incredibly proud of Skanderbeg and you will find his statue in every town. This one feels particularly communist given the location in the large square.
