Giant Communist-era statues and busts that were once situated in the main squares of Tirana, the Albanian capital, are now relegated to a small courtyard behind the National Art Gallery. There you will find bronze statues of Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin (which are very rare to find), a Miner, a Girl Soldier, a Rifleman, and a marble bust of the former Albanian dictator Enver Hoxha, among others.

Access is from the right side of the National Art Gallery behind the main building.
