Tour Itinerary

Fly to Prishtina and transfer to the Hotel Parliament or similar for 2 nights.
Morning walking tour of Prishtina including the Kosovo Museum and Emin Gjiku Ethnographic Museum, as well as photo stops at the Monument of Skanderbeg, Carshi Mosque (Bazaar Mosque) and the Kosovan Parliament. There will be an opportunity to sample a delicious macchiato in a local café. Enjoy a delicious lunch at the restaurant Gërmia located in Gërmia Park—a sprawling green park with lots of walking trails through the woods. In the afternoon drive to the Memorial Complex of the Battle of Kosovo (Gazimestan). A climb up the 100 steps to the observation platform for a great view of the Plain of Kosovo is well worth the effort! Our sightseeing will continue with a visit to the Mausoleum - final resting place of Sultan Murat Tyrbe. In the evening enjoy a dinner in one of our favourite restaurants in Prishtina—Pishat. (B,L,D)
This drive south-east to visit the Archaeological site of Upliana, once one of the most important Roman cities in the Balkans. Also included is a visit at Novobrda Fortress, an archaeological site situated in the highest peak of the Novobrdo Mountain, on top of an inactive volcano crater. The castle was built during medieval times in the city of Novobrdo, which was one of the biggest cities in Balkans as well as one of the richest due to its natural resources; it was consequently often referred to as “the city of silver and gold”. Enjoy a delicious lunch at the Bujana restaurant. In the afternoon visit the sacred village of Letnica. Nestled in the mountains, the semi-deserted Kosovo village of Letnica is transformed each August for the Feast of the Black Madonna when thousands visit the place where the famous nun received her calling. For more than 300 years, the small Catholic church has overlooked the village of Letnica and gave sanctuary to its parishioners between its two white bell towers. In 1917, 7-year-old Agnesa Bojaxhiu was visiting Letnica from her home in nearby Skopje, as she did every year with her family. She later became known as Mother Teresa, whose work with the poor in Calcutta brought her international fame. Return to Prishtina and enjoy dinner at the Liburnia Restaurant. (B,L,D)
Today visit Gracanica, a 14th-century Serb Orthodox church, before continuing to the stunning Sharri region to see a unique marble cave in Gadima. Stop for refreshments in Brezovica—a Serbian settlement in the Štrpce municipality of Kosovo. Enjoy lunch at the Sharri Mountain Resort before continuing to Prizren, located on the slopes of the Sharri Mountains. Considered by many as the jewel in Kosovo’s crown , Prizren is a beautiful Ottoman town located on the slopes of the Sharri Mountains and on the banks of the River Bistrica. Highlights include the ruined fortress, which offers panoramic views of the town below and the old house and museum of the Prizren League. (B,L)
This morning spend time with your local guide exploring the central part of Prizren including the Sinan Pasha Mosque, the 16th century stone bridge, Hamam, Helveti Tekke, and the church of lady Ljevis. We include another delicious Kosovan lunch at restaurant Besimi before rest of the afternoon free to relax at one of the many outdoor cafes or explore further. Perhaps take a walk up to ruined castle of Prizren for a spectacular view of the town below. (B,L)
In the morning, drive to Rahoveci, where due to gentle sloping hills and abundant vineyards you could be forgiven for thinking you are in Tuscany. Here visit some private family-run vineyards. A traditional lunch will be served at “Tava e Rahovecit” restaurant, where you will sample the famous Rahoveci Casserole before continuing to Gjakova, where a stop is made at an ancient Ottoman stone bridge. On arrival in Gjakova there is a short walking tour of Gjakova including a visit to the Bektashi Community. Check-in to Hotel Carshia E Jupave for overnight stay. (B,L,D)
