Kosovo is a great destination for pioneering travellers to the Balkans, 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. And there still plenty of great places to eat.

For a city break with a difference, Prishtina fits the bill. The newest capital city in the world but for Juba, South Sudan, Prishtina is 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.

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.
