The historic city of Kruja, the town glued to the slopes of Mount Kruje, has a picturesque location and is packed with attractions. Considered as “balcony of Albania”, because you can see at the same time Adriatik sea laying in front of you on the horizon, the northern part of Albania up to Montenegro border on your right, and the city of Tirana and southern part of Albania on your right. Here was the main fortress Skanderbeg, who protected Albania and Europe from the Ottomans for 25 years. The most important attraction of the city is the Museum of the National Hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg, situated in an Illyrian castle. The castle has nine towers, a few houses, and the Tekke of Dollma. The hamam is on the western side of the castle. The traditional old bazaar of Kruja stands near the castle. It is one of Albania’s largest handicrafts markets. This bazaar has operated since the 15th century. On top of this magnificent city, lays the holy place of “Sari Salltik”. Located inside a cave where believers of Bektashi religions do the yearly pilgrimages. The panoramic view from the mountain peak is simply breathtaking.
