See why Kruja Castle, which survived three sieges from Ottoman invaders, earned a place on the Albanian 1,000 lekë banknote. Inside the fortress' ancient walls is the National Skanderbeg Museum, where you will find artifacts from the battles fought just outside its walls. Although there is a small fee for the museum, there is no entrance fee to enter the castle's walls and it does not take long to tour. A traditional bazaar near the attraction offers you a chance to treasure hunt among merchant's stalls and blankets. Consider touring the town below and snapping some pictures of the attraction on the hill from the beneath its stone tower. To find out how to plan a trip to Kruje, use our trip itinerary maker.

Hieno linna. Ei liikaa turisteja. Hyvät opasteet. Avulias palvelu. Mielenkiintoinen kohde. Ei huonosti liikkuville. more »Nice Castle. Not too many tourists. Good signage. Helpful service. Interesting destination. Not for the poor mobile.
Intéressant à visiter. Belle vue, vieilles ruelles. Entrée gratuite. Pas de balustrades, faire attention si on visite avec de jeunes enfants. more »Interesting to visit. Beautiful view, old alleys. Admission is free. No railings, be careful if you visit with young children.
This place is beautiful and it has some nice views. We were just looking around, we didn't go to any museums or restaurants but it was still worth the trip. I think we could easily spend here 5-6 hours to see all and then eat.
