Skanderbeg Square has seen 41 Viennese benches added. Mayor Eion Veliaj expressed his appreciation for the gift today, underlining that with the improved conditions of public spaces provides more opportunities for citizens to enjoy their free time.
"This gift gives more spirit to the square. Squares are urban recreational facilities, but if they have no soul, no people, no life, they become useless for the city.
"The European Christmas Market has been removed, but we leave in its place new furniture, with more spring spirit, for people who will spend more time in the greenery.
"It will be here that the citizens will enjoy an opera show in nature, or the opening of the Museum, or the for many activities for the jubilee year of Skanderbeg." said Veliaj.
Austrian ambassadorto our country, Johann Sattler said that the benches in Skanderbeg Square are further proof of the strong relations and ties between Albania and Austria.
"The best work in the world is to be in this city in my profession, as the Ambassador of Austria to Albania.Why? "Because there are so many links between us, between Austria and Albania, and I am very happy to have a new bridge between us, in these Viennese benches." said Johann Sattler.
Director of Raiffeisen Bank, Christian Canacaris expressed his satisfaction for the successful closure of another agreement with the Municipality of Tirana.
"We know that Raiffeisen has always helped the capital's municipality and we are proud to help Erion. He has done a lot of good as Mayor and we will continue to sponsor such initiatives. "Of course, now we seem to be in Vienna and with our bank we will continue to assist for all activities in Tirana." Canacaris.
Veliaj underlined that as Skanderberg Square assumes a more springtime look, families and children are sure to love spending quality time utilising the facilities there.
