Overview
To visit the city of Kruja is a "MUST" for everyone who is going to vist Albania. Kruja is one of the most important cities of Albania, mostly known to be the hometown of George Kastriota Skanderbeg, the greatest Albanian hero of all the times. Yes, Albania's national hero house, and although it was over 500 years ago, there's still a great deal of pride in the fact that he and his forces defended Kruja from the Ottomans until his death. Characteristic path with shops and made out of wood and stone. After that we are going to Qafshtama National Park. The park is named after the Qafe-Shtamë passage, and has an area of 2000 hectares, with a beautiful mountain scenery consisting mainly of pine forests, some small lakes and major water sources. The national park was established in 1996 by the Albanian government. It is becoming lately a popular attraction for hiking
