In the city of Kruja, Skanderbeg’s presence is felt nearly everywhere, even beyond the castle walls. The Skanderbeg Monument, at the heart of the city, is one perfect example. Created by the talented sculptor Janaq Pacos, this statue was inaugurated on the anniversary of Albania’s Independence Day on 28th November 1959. In fact, statues of Skanderbeg extend beyond the borders of Albania, and are scattered throughout many of the continent’s capitals including Rome and Pristina, where the hero’s significance in European history is widely-known, and much celebrated.
