Eventually it will be a masterpiece. As the work is carried out, the planning pictorials that fully encompass the Square currently, will become evident.Bit of a nightmare at the moment.

The heart of Tirana, a heaving, teeming mass of honking mayhem. The traffic roars and trundles by as the Ethem Bey Mosque, the Skenderbeg Statue and the National Museum tower over the square. It's vibrant, it's lively, it's beautiful. Loved the place, couldn't help but keep gravitating back towards it.

As others have pointed out, as of September 2016, the Skanderberg Square is under major renovation and I do not know when the work will be completed. When done though, it should really be magnificent a real gem as I said. There are excellent sights right around the square, the National Museum, main mosque, and several other unusual government buildings... More

The square surrounding is beautiful! Very nicely decorated buildings. The problem is to me is that the huge garden on the middle is 100% empty...You have an emptiness feeling...

The square is being renovated at the moment but i'm sure when it is finished it will be great, It is to be made more modern and friendly towards families.

The government has big plans for this large central square. Some day it may be stunning - for the moment it is a hive of construction activity, dust and noise.

The entire square, which houses the National Museum, Opera and various other moments, is under construction at the moment, but the Skanderbeg statue is visible from outside the perimeter fence. The focal point of Tirana is a must see and should be quite beautiful once upgrading is complete.

The square surrounded by mainly administrative buildings is very impressive if one remembers this country was suppressed for so long. The statue is well sculpted and was interesting to inspect.
