Kruja Holidays & Tours

Kruja is a small highland town surrounded by mountains and pine forests, a destination famed for its castle - probably Albania’s most important historical and national landmark, and a place that features heavily in Albanian history, identity, and legend.

Situated some 20 km north of Tirana, between Mount Kruja and the Ishem river, Kruja was a Byzantine settlement until the 9th century when it was incorporated into the Kingdom of Albania. In the 15th century, it became a hot-bed of anti-Ottoman activity and for more than two decades, resisted and repelled the empire. Astonishingly, Kruja’s castle withstood three major sieges, falling on the fourth.
