Welcome to the city of Krujë!
We’re glad you’ve found us. Krujë itself is a small city situated approximately 31 kilometers (20 miles) north of the capital city of Tirana and is a place rich in history. While the region has been populated since the 3rd century B.C. it was also home to the eponymous Alban tribe as well as Gjergj Skanderbeg, the national hero of Albania. Kruja has a long list of attractions to offer tourists from the ancient castle nestled in the craggy rocks, two museums, stunning views, a nearby national park, sacred temples, natural springs, the ancient city ruins of Albanopolis, and the old bazaar.
The town is easily accessible by direct bus from Tirana. The trip takes approximately 45 minutes, costs 200lek each way, and departs from this bus station. Current bus departure times from Tirana are 10am, 11am, 1pm, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm, but are subject to change.
