Kruja - What would Skanderbeg say to his town today?

Kruja Impression

Who knows the Albanian national hero Skanderbeg1certainly knows that his name is associated with the city Krujawhere Skanderbeg was born. Under his leadership, the city resisted Ottoman siege for 25 years. Unfortunately, after Skanderbeg's death, Kruja was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire.

Kruja is located about 30 km from Tirana (http://a-trips.sk/tirana/). It is easily accessible from any major city by local transport. In the beginning I hesitated to really go, but it was worth it and I can tell you that the transportation was trouble-free.
