After 7 years, I reiterated my first visit to Albania. At that time it was mainly the town of Shkodra (http://a-trips.sk/shkodra/). Now I have added a visit of Shkodra´s rivieranamely the town of Velipoja, which is only 30 km away.
If you are interested in Velipoja, have questions or just want to share, you will find us as well here.
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 accessiblefrom any major cityby 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.
Golem- is part of the Albanian city of Durres. When you head from the center along Rruga Pavaresia to the south, you will pass through Arapaj, Shkallnur, to Golem, alongside Shkëmbi and Kavajes, to Mali i Robit. All these parts are overcrowded with hotels, restaurants and everythingtourists need during their stay.
If you are interested in Golem, have any questions or you want to share your experience, you can find us also here.
