Ellie Marr
Kosovo Travel Specialist

Kosovo is a great destination for pioneering travellers, keen to discover Europe’s newest country which only declared independence in 2008. Tourist facilities are sparse, and UN personnel still roam the streets of Prishtina, but this lends Kosovo the air of a raw, undiscovered gem waiting to be explored.

For a city break with a difference, Prishtina fits the bill. Perfectly proportioned for a short break and currently being regenerated at great speed, there’s plenty to entertain for a few days; head to a preserved Ottoman townhouse, visit the city’s mosques including the Sultan Mehmet Fatih Mosque, or sit back and soak up the atmosphere, enjoying the rise of coffee-culture here.

Beyond the capital, a wealth of treasures await; the country’s Islamic and Orthodox influences are evident in the abundance of mosques and monasteries found in the small towns and village, while the countryside beckons with wide open plains, wildflower meadows and glistening waterfalls. Discovering the city of Prizren is another highlight of any Kosovo holiday. This Ottomon gem is surrounded by mountains, packed full of mosques, tekkes, artisan shops and townhouses jutting out over the cobbled streets, and is home to the famous 16th-century stone-arched bridge.

Prishtina
Top Destination

Prishtina, capital of one of Europe's newest countries, is currently undergoing huge regeneration. Here visitors find museums detailing the 1999 conflict alongside preserved Ottoman townhouses, Serb enclaves and 12th centuries adorned with Byzantine frescoes.
Prizren
Top Destination
Prizren
Beautiful Prizren, Kosovo’s Ottoman gem, is surrounded by mountains and packed full of mosques, tekkes, artisan shops and town houses with their upper storeys jutting out into the narrow cobbled streets, making it a wonderful place to spend a few days' sightseeing and enjoying a slower pace of life.
Ulpiana
Ellie Marr's Recommendation
Ulpiana
The ancient Roman city of Ulpiana is one of the most important Roman sites in the Balkans, near the banks of the river Gracanica. Here among the archeological excavations lies a mine used in Roman times.
Visoki Decani Monastery
Ellie Marr's Recommendation
Visoki Decani Monastery
The Visoki Decani Monastery, often thought of as being the best preserved and largest church in the Balkans, is listed under UNESCO protection and features many impressive Medieval frescoes.

First-time visitors realise that there's more to see and do in Kosovo than you might expect, and though Prishtina and Prizren make wonderful city-breaks, the rest of the country deserves your time too. Fill a week's fly-drive with visits to the Decani Monastery, see the stunning Rugova Gorge and explore private family wineries.

Ellie's Tips
1
Travellers in need of a pamper should spend a night at the Swiss Diamond Hotel, complete with luxurious rooms, spa and marble baths.
2
Visit Velika Hoca and experience traditional winemaking at the Bozaj family winery.
3
Kosovo is ideal for travellers keen to be among the first UK visitors to Europe's newest country.
