Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg: this statue was erected in honour of Gjergj Kastrioti, who was titled Skanderbeg in recognition of the scale of his achievements for the Ottoman Empire (rivalling the successes of Alexander the Great), but who then turned and defended his homeland against Ottoman domination; the wreath marks this, the 600th anniversary of his birth.
