Kosovo has a rich and fascinating past which can be experienced at every turn...
Highlights of Kosovo include the many churches and mosques found across the country as well as the Brezovica Ski Resort and the historic city of Prizren.
In Pristina you can visit the National Kosovo Museum, which houses ethnographic artefacts within a spectacular heritage building. Pristina is also home to a number of mosques, including the celebrated Faith Mosque. Close to Pristina is the Gracanica Serbian Enclave, which includes the 14th-century Gracanica Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
To the south of Kosovo is Prizren, a city with a rich history and culture that’s also located right next to the Sar Mountains National Park. The northern tip of the Sar Mountains is where you’ll find the Brezovica Ski Resort. Many visitors take flights to Kosovo to enjoy the Alpine skiing at Brezovica.
Other major cities include Mitrovica and Pec. Driving to the northern city of Mitrovica should take just under an hour and cars can be hired from the airport. Mitrovica highlights include its communist industrial heritage. Pec, also known as Peja, is home to the Pec Patriarchy, a beautiful Serbian Orthodox Church. Nine miles south of Pec is Decani, where you can visit the famous Visoki Decani Monastery and enjoy the clear waters of the Decanska Bistrica River.

A handful of well-known hotel brands have recently set up in Pristina, to complement the array of small, independent hotels in the centre of the city. There’s a good enough range for most tastes and budgets.
