Full description
Join a guided tour of Kruja city to explore all its iconic attractions. Visit Kruja Castle, Skanderbeg’s Museum, National Ethnographic Museum, the Old Bazaar, and Sari Salltik Cave. Meet your guide at 9 AM in the hotel lobby. Start your tour at the Castle of Kruja, which houses Skanderbeg’s Museum. It was the epicenter of the legendary Albanian resistance to the Ottomans, led by national hero Skanderbeg in the 15th century. See a copy of the helmet and the sword of Scanderbeg in the main hall, and the flags and stems of prominent families of that time who supported the national hero. Continue to the National Ethnographic Museum, containing a diversity of everyday objects from all eras of Berat's history. Gaze at original murals, ceilings carved in wood, rare furnishings, old-style rugs, and traditional costumes from 250 years ago. Inside the house is a steamy Turkish bath, one of the only ones left in Albania. The museum also has 1,200 objects that are living proof of ancient Albanians’ lifestyle and traditions. After soaking in the culture and history, discover the current arts and crafts in the Old Bazaar. Look for souvenirs, including intricate local handicrafts. Finally, pay a visit to the holy site of Sari Salltik. Head to this cave located on the edge of a mountain 1176 meters high. Afterward, head back to Tirana at 5 PM.
