Serbian Orthodox monastery
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.
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’.
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.
