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.

  • This was definitely the most iconic statue we saw while in Prishtina. The statue is a memorable tribute to one of the most celebrated Albanian leaders. Nicely done by the architect.  more »
