Daily Tour to Kruja

Kruja is a charming medieval village, beautifully situated among mountainous peaks and a green valley stretching all the way down to the Adriatic coast. Kruja, once inhabited by the ancient tribe of Illyrians, besides its natural charm, boasts enormous historical importance. As early as the 12th century, it was the center of the first independent Albanian state. The town lies on the foot of Mount Kruja and offers spectacular views over the entire area.

The name and importance of the city are closely related to the 25 years of activity of our national hero, Skanderbeg, who, in the fifteenth century, made Kruja a bastion of uncompromising resistance against the Ottoman Empire. Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg Museum is situated inside the castle walls, which date back to the fifth and sixth centuries A.D.

Within the walls of the castle are also the Ethnographic Museum and the Dollma Tekke. Near the castle’s entrance is a traditional bazaar, which dates back to the period of Skanderbeg. Here, we can find Albanian craft products such as embroidered items, carpeting, silver objects, copper, alabaster, filigree, traditional clothing, and antiques at the traditional Old Bazaar of Kruja.
