Kruje is cool little town on the mountainside with an old castle, couple museums, old bazaar, and a fantastic view of much of the country! It's only 20 km north of Tirana and was once the capital of the Kingdom of Albania. In the 15th century, Kruje was conquered by the Ottoman Empire.
Somehow this charming little town is off the tourist radar (okay, with the exception of the occasional throngs of cruise ship passengers that pop up on a day trip). I'm now ashamed to say that I had never heard of it until I visited. Kruje is a lovely castle town with an attractive old bazaar. An excellent place for history buffs and antique hunters. Easily accessible from Tirana airport and a nice alternative to Tirana for those who don't like cities.
