We shall depart from Tirana and traverse the northern reaches of Albania, whereupon we shall cross the boundary into Kosovo. This relatively recent highway connecting the two countries has become a symbol of strengthening their connection and unity. The scenery will alter from the metropolitan Tirana to more rural and former mining towns. Situated around 260 Kilometers away from Tirana lies the capital and largest city of Kosovo: Pristina.

Situated in the heart of Pristina, the grand Library brims with over two million copies of materials, some dating as far back as the 15th century. Its architecture is a prime example of Yugoslavian Brutalism and is a masterful synthesis of Byzantine, Ottoman, and Serbian design, making it a veritable microcosm of the city. Since 1982, the Library has served as the National Library of Kosovo and continues to offer a majestic glimpse into its past. Newborn Monument Discover the bustling city center of Pristina.

It was a very nice tour, we saw a lot and were able to help shape the day. Our guide Toni was very knowledgeable and was able to explain the historical background to us really well and understandably. It was a good mix of culture, history and free time and we also had some time to rest on the way back. We liked it a lot. We would like to emphasise that Toni is very interested in history and can also explain complex topics in an interesting and good way. Even in a church, which is not really our area of expertise, he inspired us with his stories so that we were able to learn a lot. Overall it was a very nice day, it was a private tour, which of course is not cheap and has many advantages, but compared to the prices on site it was still relatively expensive.

The trip was enjoyable. We visited the picturesque town of Prizren and saw numerous stunning ruins. There were plenty of opportunities for hiking, walking, and enjoying beautiful views. Don't forget to try some delicious bakery goods and Turkish coffee while you're there! It was a trip full of surprises. See it for yourself!

The driver Miki and the tour guide Recep were incredible, punctual, very nice people and we really enjoyed the trip with them. Miki was our encyclopedia of the balkan and Recep for Kosovo we totally recommend them!! And Yes visit Kosovo it’s worth it!

The trip was awesome! It’s a lot of driving, but the guide was professional and very courteous in making stops for coffee, etc. This is an opportunity to see a country you might normally skip. We learned so much and fell in love with Kosovo.

Excellent tour, helpful and kind guide, who allowed us to enjoy and learn the history of Kosovo with passion
