    My cousin just got deployed to Kosovo.
    What is the USA’s part in this country?

    1. Av

      Your cousin just got deployed to Serbia, and the territory of Kosovo that US occupies (with UCK guerrilla – google it). Once, when your cousin is there, and if he is not sure where he came, invite him to visit Serbian medieval monasteries. Your cousin may learn about Christianity too, while spending his day time in blackmarketing with criminals in Kosovo.
      In the Bondsteel, he can find everything: as in Walmart – from food to hardware.
      He can also visit Clinton’s monument, as well as Serbs in enclaves (under UN protection going to school and work).
      Or maybe, your cousin should not be going to the sacred place of Serbia?

        AV…. This is neither about religion nor about Christianity, it is all about liberty and human rights. Who can forget the cold blooded killing of unarmed children and women by the serb forces for many years. What option were left for these people other than independence?? Your hatred is not going to help you just purify your soul

    I would like to understand more the conflict for Kosovo’s territory; what is happening between Kosovo, Serbia and Albania?

  4. Kosovo Info

    Dear Paulina,

    There is not happening a lot, actually. :)Especially not between Kosovo and Albania. But, the relationship between Kosovo and Serbia is not always great. We as a website do not inform about this political situation. We hope that you will find other (reliable) sources.

    Dear Kosovo Info,

    I am preparing to submit my doctorate thesis on Friday 24th February and I would like to use your ‘Political map of Europe’ (the top image on this website) and reference you as the original source. Would it be Okay to do this or do you not consent? My thesis is about tourism development in post-war transitional Kosovo. It would be useful to use this map you created because it clearly shows where Kosovo is.

    Please consider my request and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind Regards

      Dear Shqiperim, thanks for your message. The original source is written below (Map of Europe. Kosovo is in the south, with a blue circle drawn around the country. (c) youreuropemap.com), so it is not ours. We only drew the circle around it.

      Good luck!

    Good country but I need visa information where I can get

  10. Donna Cread

    Thank you for the map! Of course I have heard of the massacre in Kosovo and know that Kosovo is not, and could never be, a part of Serbia after that history but I hear your economy is not in good shape. You need western visitors. We bring money. You need to publish information about what a visitor could do in Kosovo and assure would be visitors they would be safe.
