Rrethi i Krujes Things to Do

  • Castle in Kruja

    From Tirana the minibuses leave from the Zogu i Zi at the end of Rruga e Durresit, we found them parked around the corner on Rruga Mine Peza, behind the gas station. Takes about 1 1/2 hours for 200 lek (2.00 dollars) look for the signs on the minibuses and or license plate Frushe-Kruja or Kruga, Fushe-Kruja is the town on the way to Kruga we took...

  • Skënderbeg Museum

    Skënderbeg Museum was designed by Enver Hoxha's daughter and finished building in 1982. It has a mixed look of both modern and fortress like. Though it looks somehow strange, it melt quite well in the landscape, amidst the old Skënderbeg fortress. The entire museum is dedicated to the struggle against the Turkish invaders and enhances the part...

  • Krujë, details Krujë, details

    A carved arch had fallen down and its stones had been arranged on the soil as they were when standing.On the second photo, I have enlarged one of the carvings. It shows a bottle, a glass and a plate. Sorry, it is not very good because I had to twist extensively the original photo to get it flat.The third photo shows a tea pot (or at least something...

  • Krujë, outside the castle

    Some parts of the citadel are still standing and seem to have been restored.The first photo was taken from under the castle, which is in the background with its round tower.

  • Krujë, remains of the castle and its...

    The first photo was taken from the summit of the tower and shows a bird's eye view on what remains of the inner part of the citadel and of various houses with their inner yards.The second photo is a close up taken with tele lens on some of these yards.The third photo shows the yard of a small farm that looks almost abandoned.

  • Krujë, entrance into the citadel

    The entrance into the citadel is by way of arched way, almost a tunnel. It allows suddenly to discover the inside of the ruined citadel, with only the root of the walls that remain, up to a height of half a meter.

  • Krujë, the old tower, a modern house and...

    The photo shows the old tower, left to the paved ramp while right to the ramp stands a plain modern house that somehow spoils the view. Moreover several banderoles are displayed along the ramp and the stairs to honor the Party! Enlarge the photo if you want to see them!

  • Krujë, ramp climbing to the citadel

    The ramp to the citadel and Skënderbeg museum is paved but only for pedestrians. It is a nice little walk. At mid height, a small monument (second photo) should be a mausoleum but I have not found to whom it was dedicated. If I visit Krujë next summer, I will have a closer look !

  • Krujë, the city

    The city of Krujë is not only the castle and the bazaar. Some parts of the city were in 1988 built in a modern and plain style (top of the photo) while there remained older houses built in a Balkanic style. The large house on the right looks especially beautiful and I have made a close-up on the second photo. It is too large to be a private house...

  • Krujë, the Bazaar

    The medieval bazaar was completely restored in the 60s but though looking rather “new”, it has an authentic Turkish look with the wide roofs that almost meet in the middle of the roughly paved alley. The wide gutter is in the middle as it was often allover Europe in the Middle Ages. Unluckily, when we visited the bazaar, the shops were closed.

  • Krujë, top of the Bazaar

    The bazaar is entirely built in wood. At the extremity of the bazaar, the last shop is very large and its triangular fronton is decorated with carvings. On the two lower ends of the triangle, a large flower made of woods of several colors. Along the sides of the triangle, half flowers of the same design and on top, the Communist five branched red...

  • Krujë, general view

    The city of Krujë stands on the slopes of Sari Salltiku mount, belonging to Malesia Krujës (Mountain of Krujë) and the first houses are almost in the valley while the last ones are a just under the fortress that stands on top of the city. The first sight when arriving from Tiranë and Fush-Krujë is of the ruined tower on top and by its side,...
