Tirana doesn’t have a lot to offer so we escaped the city into a hillside town called Kruja for a few hours. Kruja has a long and interesting history, which was told to us by an enthusiastic Albanian teenage boy who had been living in London for the past year and was visiting family back home for the summer. He had the most fabulous Albanian/Cockney accent and so desperately wanted to teach us and make our day, it was really lovely.
The town had a quaint market down the main street and a museum which you can see at the top of the hill (above). By the time we got up there it was so hot we just sat in the shade and admired the view of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
We headed back to Tirana in the afternoon and had a free evening so everyone did their own thing. Off to Berat tomorrow, can’t wait!
