Discover the breathtaking panoramic view from Kruja, a historic city located just 32km from Tirana, standing tall at an elevation of 608m above sea level.

Kruja has a significant relation to our national hero, Skanderbeg, whose 25 years of unwavering determination in the fifteenth century transformed Kruja into an uncompromising fortress against the Ottoman. Take a tour of the Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg Museum situated within the castle walls, dating back to the fifth and sixth centuries A.D. The castle also houses the Ethnographic Museum and the Dollma Tekke. Don’t forget to visit the traditional market near the castle’s entrance, dating back to Skanderbeg’s era, where you can find authentic Albanian handicrafts, including embroidered items, carpets, silver objects, copper, alabaster, filigree, and traditional clothing.
