Description

Be ready to leave Tirana / Durres at 8:30 and in less than 1-hour drive we will reach the City of Kruja. The first stop will be, the Traditional Bazaar of Kruja. It resembles an old carnival where friendly locals invite you to have a look at their handicrafts. It is a vibrant mosaic of traditional motives, colors, and warm hospitality. We will be welcomed in a local family Bar for a short break where we will have the chance to see how the locals have made their life in years. We will make our way uphill, toward the Castle of Kruja. It is the Stronghold Symbol of the Albanian Resistance during the Ottoman Invasion. The 25-year war was successfully led by the Albanian National Hero Gjergj Kastrioti Skenderbeu. The same castle has been the center of the first Albanian state, “Principata e Arberit”, since the XII Century. On our tour of the castle, we will be able to visit some of the Bektashi Tekke, Turkish Hamman, the Ethnographic Museum, and the Museum of Scanderbeg. Dedicated to the glorious figure of Skanderbeg, this museum sends us back in history, and through historical dates and facts, we will try to understand the importance of his figure. Built in the Albanian Communist Days this museum is also influenced and indoctrinated by the dictated style of the Communist Party. For those who like a mystic, holy places the Sari Saltic Cave is the place to be. Since the 14th century, it has been a place where thousands of pilgrims do their rituals. There are plenty of histories and miracles that show its power but have only one way to feel it, visiting. Return to Tirana.
