Skenderbeg Square, Downtown Tirana

Downtown Tirana: A statue of Skenderbeg, the 14th century war leader in the Albanian struggles against the Turks and hence national hero, graces the main square of the capital city, together with a socialist-realist ‘people’s center and theatre’ from the Hoxha era, representative 18th century mosque and orthodox church, and neo-classical 1930s era government buildings built under Italian fascist influence in the 1930s.
