In the inner yard of the castle, several shops were selling souvenirs of Kruja and of Skanderbeg. It was only 10 AM and there were no other visitors than us. If there were so many shops, I suppose that later in the morning and in the afternoon, busses from Tirana bring their loads of visitors to this main site of Albania?s history.

Photo 1 and 2 show parts of the first part inner yard with the vaulted entrance in the background.

Photo 3 shows the basement of an old mosque with only a few fallen walls and the bottom of the minaret.

Photo 4 shows a cannon aimed towards the plain. Every fortress has a set of old cannons!
