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.

  • The place is under construction 🚧 right now so not so pretty. But I’m sure it will turn out nice
  • This is the closest stop station to other areas in Albania.. buses stop on the inner side of the street. I posted some photos so you can find where they are. Going to Saranda from here. We had difficulties finding where saranda’s buses stop so I had to post this here so you dont get lost..
