With great views from this castle and a guide giving us a good overview of the history of the castle, a good place to visit. The national hero Skanderberg dominates the history and the castle.

Totally worth visiting it. Great view of the city. Road to the castle was really nice. There are several restaurants inside the castle. You can have a decent lunch for a good price.

There is a museum in the castle. The entrance fee was about € 3 per person, but I can't remember it exactly anymore. The children had to pay as well.
