Kalaja Fortress, Prizren

4.5
Admire views of Prizren, witness the surrounding mountains, and explore the remains of the erstwhile capital of the Serbian empire at Kalaja Fortress. The fortress is largely in ruins, and much of what remains today is from the Ottoman period. You are free to wander around the site, but be respectful of the attraction's extensive history and mindful of your own safety. Wear sensible shoes for the steep hike up and be sure to bring plenty of water. A deserted Orthodox church makes a good rest stop on your journey. Plan your visit to Kalaja Fortress and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Prizren tour planning website.

  • I knew Prizren was beautiful, but I didn't imagine this. The city is beautiful and full of atmosphere, but from the first minute anyone who arrives in Prizren knows that there is only one goal: to go up to the fortress. There are 2 ways to do it, one is going up the short and steep road, the other is going around the mountain and the fortress itself, coming from behind, I did this. After about 10km of bike I was exhausted, but the view during the ride had already satisfied me, however once I reached the top with the sunset on my facr I had no doubts: the whole 2019 tour had made sense, another time. I think the images say it all.
  • Love the hiking and the view from above is amazing you can see Prizren city and also the sunset is breathtaking. Thank you Prizren for the beautiful memories
