Albania’sKrujëCastle (Kalaja eKrujës)was the center of its struggle against the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century, led by national hero George Skanderberg. Today, the castle is home to the National Skanderberg Museum, remains of the Fatih Sultan Mehmed Mosque, an ethnographic museum, a Turkish bath and a reconstructed bazaar. It also offers scenic views of the surrounding area.

The Skanderberg Museum contains artifacts dating back to the 15th century, with exhibits arranged to honor Skanderberg and his military feats. Items on display include paintings, armor, maps and stone and wood engravings. The highlight of the collection is a replica of Skanderberg’s famous helmet topped with a goat head. The ethnographic museum is considered one of the best organized museums in Albania. Set in a traditional Ottoman era house, it contains objects up to 500 years old. Visitors can walk through a handful of the 15 rooms, including the living room, children’s room and kitchen. Exhibits include olive oil processing tools, pottery and both Catholic and Muslim clothing.

Albania is the last unexplored area of the Europian touristic map, so the interest to visit this small and beautiful country is growing more and more. Albania has become a favorite destination for travelers. Having been almost entirely closed off under the hard-line communist regime for many decades, the country is still considered an exotic tourist destination. The natural scenery and beauty of the mountainous countryside is therefore largely unspoilt. Visitors can discover gorgeous beaches.
