The fortress contained a very interesting museum on the history of Albania. The murals and statues are larger than life. Information boards have parts written in english.

The visit to Kruja castle offers a good insight into the history around Skanderberg, a national hero born in Kruja. There is not much to see anymore of the old castle, but it is still a nice walk up there. When there it is also advisable to visit the Skanderbeg museum in the center of the castle.

The drive up was past some bunkers and the climb was steep. No wonder this castle proved hard to take by enemies. We wandered the area and climbed up to the castle. The panoramic view is worth a little climb.

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 .
