Prishtina center Kosovo

Prishtina capital of Kosovo

Prishtina - capital of Kosovo, the youngest country in Europe, and with almost 200,000 inhabitants, it is also the largest city in the country. Prishtina is located east of central Kosovo in the historical landscape of Rrafsh i Kosovës at 595 m above sea level. The city is surrounded by the fertile plains of this region, with the Zhegoc hills rising to the east. Located in the center of the country, Prishtina is also a transport hub as well as the economic and cultural center of the Republic of Kosovo.

Prishtina is now a very dynamic, vibrant city with exciting offers that has changed positively over the years. "Prishtina Airport" is an airport near Prishtina, the capital of Kosovo. It is located around 15 kilometers southwest of the city near the M-9 km of the Prishtine-Peje highway.

To see the most important sights, a walk is recommended, which should perhaps begin in Dardania, past a gigantic picture ans statue of US President Bill Clinton, the Grand Hotel, and follow Nena Tereze Street to the Skenderbeg Monument and the government building . In the old town with its narrow streets you will find several impressive mosques and you can drift through the markets and cafes. Also, don't miss the city's Ethnographic Museum, located in the old town. Perhaps you can consider a detour to Dragodan or Arberi, where the city park (also known as the “Italian Park”) is particularly attractive. The Gërmia Park is also worth a visit. With its lake-like outdoor pool, it is a popular attraction for families and young people. Families from Prishtina love to spend their free time together in this park, which is ideal for swimming in summer, fishing in autumn and opportunities for walks in the fresh air all year round. The park is ideal for skiing in the winter months.
