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??
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.
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
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.
