We will have the opportunity to learn more about this great leader by visiting the museum which was named after him, “Skanderbeg Museum”. The ethnographic museum is also an opportunity to discover the local culture, lifestyle and family traditions. Finally, we can have a stroll between the stalls of the old market located on a charming square with cobbled streets: ideal to pick some souvenirs! We have lunch in a traditional restaurant. Once we are finished in beautiful Kruja, we head to the beach of Shengjin, one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the Adriatic Sea. From there we head to the city of Lezha, here we visit the Scanderbeg tomb, the cathedral of Saint Nicholas and the hunter’s lodge 7km away from the city. The visitors may enjoy the forest and the big hunting ground of the tourist site. The lodge has a special and original architecture. Dinner and accommodation in the hotel will be in Lezha.
