We also include some transfers by private car, in order to visit some of Kosovo’s rural highlights that aren’t very accessible by local transportation.
Of course, a holiday to Kosovo would not be complete without a few delicious local meals, so enjoy traditional dishes in the mountain village of Drelaj and mouth-watering trout in Istog.
After breakfast, make your way to Prishtina Bus Station to take the bus to Prizren. The journey takes around 1.5 hours and there are half hourly departures.

Head into the northern reaches of Kosovo this morning and the town of Mitrovica which has become a symbol of the divide between Albanians and Serbs after the conflict. Visit the memorial in Prekaz; dedicated to the Kosovan Che Guevara, Adem Jashari. Visit the Mausoleum - final resting place of Sultan Murat Tyrbe before continuing 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! Travel to Prishtina and check in to the Hotel Sirius for the last evening.
