The historic city of Kruja lies on a panoramic mountain slope 32 km away from Tirana, 600 m above sea level.The city is one of the most beautiful tourist spots due to its natural views and its history. Here Gjergj Kastrioti(Skanderbeg) protected Albania and Europe from the Ottomans. The most important attraction of the city is the Museum of the National Hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg,situated in an Illyrian castle,which took its present facade during the 5th-6th century. The castle has nine towers,a few houses, and the Teqja e Dollmasë. The hamam is on the western side of the castle. Inside the castle grounds, you can also visit the Ethnographic Museum,a typical house made of çardak, which belonged to the illustrious Toptani family.
