Photographer's Note

This is Skanderbeg sqr, the center of Tirana, the capital of Albania. The building on the left is the "Palace of Culture". It houses the National library and the "Theater of Opera and Balet". Nikita Khrushchev himself placed the first symbolic brick when he visited Albania in 1959. Right after the palace is the Mosque of Et'hem bey, build in the 18th century.
The statue in the center of the square is Skanderbeg, Albania's national hero.
