Kosovo is a land that is full of surprises. It is also a place where you are going to find a great cup of coffee just about everywhere you go.

You’ll also have the chance to talk with people who are enjoying their own coffee in the sun just as you are and make some new friends. Sometimes there might be a language barrier involved, but there will always be one thing you and everyone else in this nation has in common: a friendly smile.

The Medieval Monuments

Many people are surprised to see just how beautiful this nation happens to be, especially with the stories of conflict that have trickled out to the rest of the world over the years. You’ll still find 17th century monasteries, 13th centuries chapels, and beautiful frescoes throughout the nation that are both unique and monumental in their design. You also won’t find many lines to go through these historic sites because Kosovo is off of the tourism radar at the moment.

History At Your Fingertips

If you go down the average street in the average metropolitan area in Kosovo, you will find miles of Communist-style block housing. If you take a closer look at them, you’ll also find the scars of recent years still painfully evident. Even so, there are masterpieces to be discovered in this bland architecture that will literally take your breath away.

Authenticity

Because tourism isn’t the highest priority for Kosovo right now, what you’ll receive with a trip here is an authentic experience. Instead of being encouraged to go through kitschy markets and over-priced restaurants, you’ll be treated like a local during your stay. With prices about 50% of that in Western Europe, your money is going to stretch further as well.

Kosovo offers visitors the chance to see beautiful landscapes, encounter history, and relax in a way that is unique in the world today

Pristina, capital of Kosovo

Pristina is the capital city of Kosovo and it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world that is not often frequented by tourism. Less than 40,000 foreign visitors entered the city in 2012, the last year the figures were publicly released, which means you’ve got the opportunity to really explore a community that has been untouched by the trappings of tourism and marketing. There is nature to explore, monuments to enjoy, and plenty of culture to immerse...
