"Caution, Rozafa" Top 5 Page for this destination Shkoder Warnings Or Dangers Tip by JLBG

Shkoder Warnings and Dangers: 6 reviews and 7 photos

Rozafa castle is, in my opinion, a must see in Shkod?r However, you must read the following if you plan to make the visit.

This is the situation in July 2005. Both roads that lead to Rozafa are unsuitable for small cars, without enough ground clearance as the surface is very uneven. A 4WD is not necessary, but a strong car with a good ground clearance is a need.

You can park along the main road and walk. The climb should be around 1.5 km until the entrance into the castle. It is perhaps possible to hire a taxi from the city center. Of course visitors riding a mountain bike (whom that might it be ?!) will not have any problem.
