Kruja, Preza Castle & Durres

7 reviews
Travel to the city of Kruja, about 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of Tirana. Visit the Skanderbeg Museum and the Old Bazaar. Enjoy a fresh fish lunch on the Lagoon of Patok, then it’s on to Durrës, known for its colossal Roman amphitheater. Explore the grounds and check out the city’s street art. A highlight is having coffee atop the Venetian Tower of Durres.

Cable ride with splendid views over Tirana. When at the top station you can make some trekking in the mountains - there are some designated trails. Wear good shoes and take a rain coat as the weather at that height can change rapidly. We experienced a strong rainfall that caused the cable car to stop operations for some time.

This was a must on the trip for me and my partner. The cable car itself, we took a taxi from the city centre which was about a 10 minute ride, and it was reasonably priced for the cable car. The cable car itself was average, but offered good air inside, and amazing views over the city and to the farms below, as well as the mountain in the background. When you get to the peak, well it was really something else. When I visited in Feb 2020, the city was sunny and warm, but stepping out of the cable car, it had ice forming on the trees and deep snow everywhere. There is a café at the top and a restaurant, and a small golf course, and really good views down to the city below. Fully recommended,

I'm so surprised with so many 5 stars and must do reviews here. Dajti Express is just an ordinary average cable car ride taking you to the Dajti mountain peak. The starting point is in north-eastern suburbs of Tirana, and I wouldn't even advise coming here, if there wasn't a terrific must visit BunkArt 1 museum (5 min away, read that review). The cable car takes 20 min one way, and when on the peak you can have a drink, play mini golf or "admire" the view - or hike which makes most sense if you're that kind of traveller. "Admiring" the view is very boring (speaking me, as a viewpoint maniac, been on hundreds worldwide), as Tirana's panorama is far below average. On our first day in Tirana it was cloudy, so we went late afternoon next day when it was sunny. But, then again we barely saw anything due to heat haze and extensive sun. To conclude - do not come only for the cable car, only if you're already here for the BunkArt 1.

Nice views over Tirana, especially on hot days during summer. Easy to get there with the Porcelani bus line (40 Lek)

A journey of approx 15 min to reach the top of this cable car. Do not hesitate to spend a couple of hours to go there and benefit of a wonderful view on Tirana.
