Located in Flag's Plaza, Independence Monument commemorates the Albanian independence of 1912. The statue is tall and easy to spot as you approach the plaza. Notice the proud-looking figures of men in various types of dress, some carrying weapons--they represent the different types of Albanian people who fought for the country's independence. The statue's style was influenced by the Social Realism of the period, which celebrates the struggles of the worker.

  • Close together are the Monument, the Muradi mosque and the stairway to the Teke Babi. The monument as such is nice to see, nice to take a picture. It’s a must see when in Vlorë but it’s not a place...

  • The monument itself is beautiful but the area around it it's under construction. It doesn't look appealing to the tourists at the moment.
  • One of the most important monuments of Albania if you're a tourist you must visit here! But as of April 2022 there is a lot of construction around the monument. Otherwise this monument is a amazing visit to see a giant statue honoring our country's independence movement!
