    It is a street with craft shops where they sell different products, from souvenirs to ethnographic pieces, clothes tradional, jacks, etc, very colorful. It leads to the fortress which displays the history of the local hero who turned out against the Turkish power. Beware slips as the stones from the soil they are fully polished.

    The open air market of Kruja, more properly called classic Ottoman style Bazaar, Pazar, was restored, so to speak, in 2015, as part of the celebration of the 500 years after the birth of Skanderbeg. Known by the locals as Derexhikut Bazaar, located on both sides of the road leading to the Castle and the floor is paved with pebbles beautiful smooth. And the road goes uphill. Then, eye to plant your feet firmly. The shops are of trinkets. They are all made with wooden walls, ceilings, plantation shutters. Virtually remained equal to the time of Skanderbeg. You are modernized only in the type of items sold, since they had to keep up with the explosion of tourism in Albania is one of the best places in the country for souvenir shopping local craft-related: tablecloths embroidered copper coffee pots and beautifully, dishes, silver, copper, alabaster, rugs. Of course, nothing to do with the real, ancient, Ottoman market, so everything is very touristic and most shops have all the same things. but it is fascinating, ancient houses are "real", and the atmosphere is evocative

    On the road that connects the castle to the South of Kruje, there is the modern version of the ancient Bazaar — many lovely wooden houses that sell handicraft items and not. It is interesting to visit several: often repeating objects (earrings and bracelets silver filigree, colored boxes, liquor glasses, folk costumes), but they're not made in China. In addition to this, there are relics of dictatorship and World War II field phones, helmets, etc., for history buffs and collectors. Prices are low, and some shopkeepers speak Italian, others speak English. To see.
