The centre of Tirana is Sheshi Skënderbej (Skanderbeg Sq), a large traffic island with an equestrian statue of the eponymous Albanian national hero at its centre. Running through the square is Tirana's main avenue, Blvd Zogu I, which south of the square becomes Blvd Dëshmorët e Kombit (Martyrs of the Nation Blvd). Most of the city's sights are within walking distance of the square, though Tirana itself is now one huge urban sprawl.
