In the city of Kruja, Skanderbeg’s presence is felt everywhere beyond the castle walls, as well. One such case is the Skanderbeg Monument, at the heart of Kruja. Created by the talented sculptor Janaq Pacos, this statue was inaugurated on the anniversary of Albania’s Independence Day on November 28th, 1959. Actually, statues of Skanderbeg are scattered throughout many of the continent’s capitals including Rome and Pristina, where the hero’s significance for European history is well-known and celebrated.
