Meeting with Skanderbeg, Tirana, Albania

Gjergij Kastroti Skanderbeg was a son of the prince of Kruja, given as hostage to the sultan Murad II.
He became an Ottoman general, and twenty years later he converted to Catholicism and leaded Albanians against the Ottoman forces.

He’s the national hero of Albania. Hm… strange, if you keep in mind that Islam is the biggest religion there…

And yes, if you’ve got a moment read the Myth of Skanderbeg…
