Then, we will have a walk at the Bllok area (Tirana’s famous bar/clubs area, and ex-communist forbidden zone). Afterward, continue to Kruja. Kruja is a small town perched high on the face of a hill considered “the Adriatic Sea’s Balcony”, because of its altitude above mean sea level (approximately 1000 m). Kruja was the center of 15th century Albanian resistance to the Ottomans under the leadership of national hero Gjerg Kastrioti “Skanderbeg”. Visit the unique Skanderbeg Museum inside the restored castle and the Ethnographical Museum. The street leading up to the castle is built in the style of a Turkish bazaar; we can stroll along the old bazaar which has a wonderful selection of authentic antiques and souvenirs. Lunch with traditional food and Albanian Folk Show. Transfer to Durres. City tour and return to Durres city/port.
