Kosovo is one of Europe's newest countries and tourist destinations. Here, experiences await in the capital of Pristina and cities such as Prizren and Peć, and nature has much to offer with impressive mountain landscapes, forests, rivers and waterfalls.

The tour of Pristina can start in the magnificent cathedral tower, which provides great views. Korza is the city's elegant pedestrian street, and in the city there are churches and mosques, museums and interesting monuments such as a statue of American president Bill Clinton and an artwork with the letters NEWBORN.

The town of Prizren is not far from the capital, and in Prizren you will get back in history to an evocative city center from old days with the famous stone bridge over the river Prizren Bistrica. In Peć one should enjoy the trip to the patriarchy of the city monastery, which is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The nature of Kosovo invites you to hike in the country's many mountains, which reach the country's highest points west of Peć and south of Prizren. Dramatic landscapes are just steps aside idyllic lakes and many streams and rivers. Plains are between the mountains of the country, and at short distances everything can be reached easily and quickly.
