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.

Kruja Castle Reviews
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.
Beautiful history. The views are breathtaking and there is also little antique stores that you can visit. It's perfect.
