Monumenti Luigj Gurakuqi | The Luigj Gurakuqi Monument

"Shkodra In Your Pocket" Guide puts the location of this monument at Sheshi L. Gurakuqi (map reference D-2), which does not exist in OSM. The OSM does contain two squares that are located adjacent to the position shown on the "Shkodra In Your Pocket" Guide map: Sheshi i Qytetit and Sheshi Nene Tereza. My guess is that Sheshi L. Gurakuqi is the old name of one of these, but which, I have no way of knowing. I have arbitrarily placed the location of this monument on the SE corner of the intersection, pending further information. There is no reference to this monument in the Old City map.

Note: there is a name conflict in one of the streets leading to Sheshi i Qytetit. The "Shkodra In Your Pocket" Guide map has the street named 16 Nentori and OSM has it as Rruga 18 Nëntori.
