Full day trip - Visit Kruja &  Sari Salltik

Departing from Tirana at 9 am from your Hotel or in front of our office, drive to Kruja. The first stop on this tour is Kruja Castle, a medium-sized fortification located at the highest point of the city. Here you can admire the historical center of Kruja and the nature beautiful nature that surrounds it from this amazing vantage point. Kruja Castle dates back to the time of the Principality of Arber, the 12th century AD. Once inside the castle, you will visit the Skanderbeg Museum, the national historical museum Albania, where you will find documents and facts that tell us about the resistance of the people against the Ottomans. The next stop will be the Ethnographic Museum, where you will be able to explore and understand the traditions of the Albanian people from the Middle Ages till now

After the castle on foot, you will enter the Kruja bazaar area. The ancient market is full of craft shops where you can buy, unique crafts and souvenirs. The bazaar is where the local artisans invite you to take a look at their handicrafts. It is a vibrant mosaic of traditional motifs, fabrics, colors, and warm local hospitality. Free time at Bazaar then continue to  visit at the cave of Sari Salltik

The second part of our tour will take you to visit one of the most beautiful destinations for tourists visiting Albania. The Sari Salltik cave is not easy to reach, but it is a must-see for those who love mystical and holy places. It is located 10 km from Kruja, in a mountainous area, 1100 meters above sea level. Here is the hermitage where the bektashi monk Sari Salltik Baba retired to pray in the 14th century. Today the cave of Sari Salltik has become a very important spiritual.  Optional Lunch in a Local restaurant located on top of the Skanderbeg mount. Back to Tirana.
