Skanderbeg is everywhere, but this is the most impressive statue of him. The square is a hot place in the sun with little shade.

As such just an impressive statue, but it is centrally located on a big square, the heart of the city and often a venue for events, you can't really miss it.

throughout the militarized world we find guys on horseback, I mean what can you say about any of them, luck they had a horse and not a mule to sit on??

The statue is of the former Albania leader. Numerous people were here taking photos. Proud to see a country perserving their history.

In a large traffic circle, the Statue of Skanderbeg, George Castriot (Albanian: Gjergj Kastrioti, 6 May 1405 – 17 January 1468) the national hero of Albania, is majestic and picture-worthy.

There isn't much activity going on here, the statue mostly just standing there, But seriously. It's a nice piece of statue at the skanderbeg square.

A man on a horse with the country's flag. You have likely seen a similar statue many times in many other countries. The square itself is a must see in Tirana and the statue is part of the story. Take a picture and move on.

I, personal speaking, am not too in love with statues and monuments. However, this one is right there, centrally located in the main square, so I did not make a special trip to see it, just enjoyed its presence

The statue is In a very central position in the main city square. It is a good representation of the national hero.

You are able to get so close to this statue, it's brilliant. At the time of my visit there was, I believe, maintenance to the structure of the statue. Or some sort or staging? But still a brilliant attraction and proudly positioned in the square.
