About Kruja

The city is the epicenter of Albania’s independence from the Ottoman Empire. It was here that Gjergj Kastriot Skanderbeg, Albania’s greatest national hero, defended the country from the Ottoman invasion. The National Museum, dedicated to the hero and housed within the famous Kruja Castle, is the most visited museum in Albania. The Ethnographic Museum, which shows the traditional way of life of the city’s population, is also one of the best in the country. While it may feel strange to visit the city’s famous bazaar without being able to buy a souvenir or two, we are certain you will enjoy this virtual stroll.
