Quite an impressive monument which is quite dominating. Not sure I would recommend going too far out of your way to view. We were staying in a hotel close by so it was on our way when walking down to the seafront. It's likely stop-off point in city tour groups.

The monument is located on Flag's Square with The wall ruins of the ancient city of Aulon behind the monument and Muradie Mosque one minute away. The area is very clean and well taken care of.

In 10 years time, city of Vlore changed a lot and this particular monument is still under the renovation. However it is worth visiting it

Built under the communist regime, it is a glorification of the declaration of independence of the country on November 28, 1912. The Communists had nothing to do with same so it has very much a propaganda feel about it. The monument is in Flag’s Square. It includes the sculpture of Ismail Qemali, the founding father of Albanian independence.

This monument is dedicated to Albania liberation from the Ottoman empire which occurred in 1912.
It's set on the central square, which is quite new renovated (in fact, still under renovation).
It's literally a 5 min pic stop for both - the monument and the Mosque down the street.

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 to spend hours.

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

As of April 2019 they are working on the main street in Vlore leading from the sea to the monument. It is still under construction but looks like it will be complete soon. It is an interesting walk up to the monument but nothing really special. While this main avenue is going to be nice when its complete, apart from a few patio's and even fewer shops, the walk is just interesting.
If you happen to be in Vlore certainly do this, but not worth a special trip in my view.
