This article is a list of activities in Pristina (sometimes written Pristina or Pristina), the capital of Kosovo. Look for where to drink in the capital of Kosovo And in the district of Pristine you will find everything.
Albanian - a city in the Balkans that speaks predominantly Albanian, but is known for its proximity to neighbouring countries such as Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro.
Even if you are not, you cannot miss the huge monument to Bill Clinton, which is located in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo. You will be surprised to know that Kosovo is known to be one of the few European nations that REALLY loves American visitors. Many old Kosovo Albanians have worked there as guest workers in the past, and the relationship between Kosovo and its neighbours Serbia and Montenegro is very strong.
After the end of the Kosovo conflict in 1999, Albanians in Kosovo erected a monument to Gjergj Kastrioti, also known as Skanderbeg. Near the Newborn Monument, the Hero Monument commemorates the life of Tito, one of the founders of Kosovo and the founder of Yugoslavia. The monument in the Spomenik complex in Pristina, Kosovo, is to commemorate the fallen partisans from the region who died during the popular struggle for liberation during the Second World War. Although the use of the name of a former president of the Kosovo Albanians and former president of Serbia seems to be an attempt to establish the monument as a monument to Tito's ideas of unity and brotherhood, in the eyes of some people this is a very controversial step.
The Kosovo war ended in 1999 when NATO troops came to support Kosovo against Serb troops. Long history in short: NATO troops, led by the United States of America, decided to intervene in favor of Kosovo and bombed Serbia and Montenegro.
In November 2018, Kosovo was the only independent state to receive 116 diplomatic recognition, while Serbia is very active in its view that Kosovo still belongs to Serbia. As Kosovo was an active war zone in 1999 and tensions between Kosovo Albanians and Kosovo Serbs still persist, many people assume that Kosovo is not a safe place to visit. Having visited Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, twice and experienced the history and culture of the city and its people first hand, I recommend that you include it in your travel bucket list.
The journey from Pristina to Skopje takes about 3 hours and costs 7 euros, and in Serbia there are several direct buses from Belgrade, which cost 2000 dinars each and stop at Nis to Krusevac, depending on the route. If you want to travel to Serbia, you must pass through the border crossing in Krasnodar before entering Serbia. There are two ways to travel to Kosovo: by car or by bus, both of which take at least 2 hours. Kosovo Albanian companies operate several direct buses to and from Belgrade and some from other parts of Kosovo.
In some cases, you will have to leave Kosovo (easily) via Albania, Montenegro or Macedonia and cross the border in northern Kosovo without detours and get directly to the Serbian border, not through Kosovo. There are several ways to get from Serbia to Kosovo, which could save you trouble if you leave via Serbia.
If you entered Serbia illegally, please note that Serbia does not recognise Kosovo as an independent state, and if you enter Kosovo from a country other than Serbia, you must enter Serbia directly via Kosovo. If you enter Kosovo via countries other than Serbia and want to continue to Serbia, you may have problems if the Serbs think you entered their country illegally.
If you enter Kosovo via Albania, Macedonia or Montenegro and do not enter Serbia legally, you will be refused entry to the Serbian-Kosovar border. This also happens when you use a passport that does not have a "Serbian entry."
If you want to travel from Serbia to Kosovo, you must leave Serbia and enter Serbia via another country, such as Macedonia. If you are crossing Montenegro, you can ask the Kosovo police to stamp a Kosovo entry stamp on your passport, which they do not stamp unless you have left Serbia. One option is to enter Kosovo via Albania, as described in the proposed Balkan route ("The Long Way," which includes a journey from Tirana via Kosovo to Prizren and further to Skopje). If you enter directly via Serbia, there is a chance that you will have to leave in the same way as you came (see note on Kosovo), which I did on one occasion to obtain a "Serbian entry" or "exit" stamp.
Kosovo has no train connection, so I would suggest going from Kolasin in Montenegro to Peja in Kosovo and then on to Pristina. From there you can reach Pristina by bus, train or car (Kosovo has no railway lines, but Albania does).
