Skanderbeg Statue - Into Albania

Skanderbeg Statue

The Skanderbeg Statue

Located at the very heart of Tirana, the Skanderbeg Statue sits in the square named after the great hero (Skanderbeg Square). Partly due to its prime positioning, this became perhaps the best-known Skanderbeg monument!

A bit of history

In 1968, the monument made its way to the square, on the occasion of Skanderbeg’s 500th death anniversary. Three talented Albanian sculptors Odhise Paskali, Andrea Mano and Janaq Paço, created the statue, perhaps not predicting its iconic future. Now, with the recent renovation of the main square, the spotlight is once more on this beautiful landmark!
