Some tourist travel tips for Kosovo

When you think of the Balkan Peninsula, you can think of places like Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia and Albania. This region in Eastern Europe is home to many lesser known places that every traveler should visit. One of them is Kosovo, the youngest European country rarely visited by outsiders. This small Balkan country is home to beautiful places worth visiting. Read on to learn about the most beautiful cities in Kosovo.


Pristina is the capital of Kosovo and its political and economic center. It may not be as charming as other Eastern European capitals, but Pristina is charming in many ways. I have a great coffee culture, weird architecture and the people are wonderful. Two inconspicuous places in Pristina are the Newborn Monument, a symbol of the county’s independence (Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008) and the inevitably ugly National Library of Kosovo, built in 1982 by Croatian architect Andrija Matnjakovic. It is famous for its 99 domes and a giant metal fishing net covering the entire structure. Be sure to enjoy coffee at one of the city’s two brightest bars – Soma Book Station or Dit’n’Nat – both are pleasant places visited by students as well as by the international community that lives in the city.


Prizren is considered the cultural capital of Kosovo. While Pristina is more international and has a lively nightlife, Prizren is known for its ancient architecture, religious buildings and history. It is only an hour by bus from the capital, so you can see it as a destination for a day trip. The best thing to do in Prizren is to climb to the top of the old fortress, Kalaja, and enjoy the hearty views of the old town. Bring the camera with you, because the panorama includes several mosques, churches, bridges and red roofs. Then return to the city and visit the Shadervan area, which is the most beautiful district of Prizren, with ancient mosques, crowded cafes and a charming old stone bridge.
