KRUJË

We arrived in the late afternoon to ancient city with bazaar and castle. The name and the importance of the city are closely related to the 25 years of activity of Albanian national hero, Skanderbeg, who in the 15th century made Kruja a bastion of uncompromising resistance against the Ottoman. The Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg Museum is situated inside the castle walls, which date back to the fifth and sixth centuries. Within the walls of the castle are also the Ethnographic Museum and the Dollma Tekke. Near the castle’s entrance is a traditional market – old bazaar, where you can get some traditional handicrafts.
