Kosovo tourism

Planning a holiday to Kosovo? Have a day off in the small Balkan state? The country has a lot to offer. Beautiful landscapes, high mountains, old city centers, waterfalls and ancient religious buildings are yours to visit in Kosovo. Here are some Kosovo tourism highlights:

Rugova Valley

kosovo-info-tourism-rugovaOne of the nature highlights of the Balkan is the Kosovar Rugova Valley; a stretched mountain range with water, waterfalls and rocks.

Those who freely want to enjoy the area can drive through the valley by car. Every season brings a new kind of beauty, so there is enough to enjoy.

Do you want to go for a walk or hike? Just park your car along the road at a random spot and take one of the numerous side paths. You might end up in the small winter sports village of Bogë. A very cute place to stay. Read more…

 

Serbian Orthodox monastery

kosovo-tourism-monastery-decanHidden in the woods, protected by NATO soldiers and worthwhile to visit: the Serbian Orthodox monastery in Deçan.

The Visoki Decani is how you would imagine the perfect monastery – surrounded by woods, beautifully shaped, and wrapped in silence.

Visitors are very welcome and with a bit of luck you will be guided around inside by an orthodox monk. The church is one of the most beautiful churches you have ever seen. A highlight of Kosovo tourism. Read more…

 

Mirusha waterfalls

kosovo-tourism-mirusha-waterfallsHidden away in nature is the beautiful Mirusha waterfalls. A highlight in Kosovo tourism, and hardly to be found elsewhere in the Balkans.

For those who want to get away for a couple of hours, the waterfalls are an absolute must see.

If you do not only want to make nice pictures, you can also attempt to climb them. And at your own risk…  jump off. Even after a couple of visits you still see new details of the rocks that surround the waterfall. Read more…

 

NEWBORN monument

kosovo-info-tourisme-newbornOne of the most historical places in the very recent history of Europa is the NEWBORN monument in Kosovo.

The capital Pristina revealed the letters at the moment when the (former) province of Serbia declared their independence.

The city isn’t directly a beautiful monumental city, but because Pristina is the center for the international community, government, media and the student life, the capital breathes the most the ‘new Kosovo’. Read more…

 

Center of Prizren

kosovo-info-tourism-prizrenThe Ottoman Empire has strongly influenced the Kosovar city of Prizren. Thanks to the European taxpayers many of the city highlights have been restored and accessible for everybody.

You can climb the fortress, located less then twenty minutes from the city center. From there you’ll have a stunning view over Prizren, and you can count dozens of minarets.

The center street of the old town counts a big mosque, a Serbian Orthodox church and a beautiful Catholic Church. Read more…

 

Old town of Gjakova

kosovo-info-tourism-gjakovaGjakova might be the most authentic Kosovar town. At the same time, it’s a modern municipality, the only with a female mayor.

The old town of Gjakova was one of the most developed trade centers during the rule of the Ottoman Empire in Balkans. Although the old town was ruined in the Kosovo war of 1999, the streets are restored to their traditional style. The face of the old center changed recently. A narrow street, full with bars, brought back the youth to Gjakova. A Kosovo tourism highlight. Read more…

 

Bear sanctuary

Around a dozen of bears live in the park. Some of them are inside, some play outside in the water, and a couple of bears are usually just enjoying the weather. Every animal has his own sign with personal information about his background and his actual behavior. Read more…

 

Brezovica ski resort

brezovica-ski-resortBrezovica is a popular ski resort in the south of Kosovo, close to the border with Macedonia.

There are nine ski runs located in the area, with distances between 300 meter and 3.500 meters. The top of the biggest hill is around 2.500 meters (8200 feet) high. In the spring of 2015, French companies signed a deal to invest 400 million euros in the ski resort. There are a couple of hotels in the wintersport area, that can accomodate around 700 people. An excellent place for winter tourism, and in the future for summer Kosovo tourism too. Read more…

      Biztosan nagyon finom néhány nap állás után, de ezt nemm tudtam kipróbálni. Hat fej fokhagymából készítettem el mabralicazsígnan, de még aznap elfogyott, a családom “csak úgy” kenyérrel megette az egészet…Anysi
