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...  more »
  • This was very near to our hotel so it was only a short walk to see it. An excellent memorial to the escape from the Ottoman Empire  more »

  • Impressive monument in celebration of Albania's independence from the Ottoman Empire proclaimed in Vlore in 1912. The monument itself dates from the 70s so it is typical of the heroic Communist style. The park near it is clean and well maintained. Don't miss the ancient ruins of Vlora very nearby
  • Nice place in the park, surrounded with trees. However no sign in English explanation
