One of the best preserved albanian historical place. It is not near the Tirana, more than an hour bus ride, very narrow road on some spots but after you come you will say immediately, it’s worst,
Nothing to add but to say pay a visit to this place if you are visiting Albania and have a day for history part.
Recommended.

There are only ruins of the castle and a museum at the top of the hill but lovely views. The walk up is steep but you pass through nice wee market streets . The Skanderberg museum is quite interesting .

It is not so much the castle which makes a visit here worthwhile but the whole Kruje experience. Kruje castle stands on a Crag overlooking the plain below with wide views. Within the walls there are 2 museums and the approach there is a cobbled street leading through a bazar.
The castle is pretty much in ruins but the views and the museums make up for it.

Not much left, just a closed tower and part of the walls, bit very close to the museum where we were and excellent views of Kruje and its surroundings.

The castle itself is a ruin, but the view is fabulous. You can see all the way to the Adriatic. No wonder Skanderbeg picked this spot.
