Create an itinerary including Kalaja Fortress
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.

  • A must visit for tourists and locals. 1) the location overlooks the city and the forest 2) the location is difficult to get to due to the steep uphill walk. Yet it’s not impossible if the sun wasn’t hot. 3) beautiful views and buildings from within the walls 4) it has access to hiking paths within the forest Highly recommended
  • Highly recommend to visit when you are in town. It takes only 15 minutes to reach the point and the most surprising thing is that it’s free!!!! No ticket required. I stayed in Prizren for 3 nights and I went every day. It’s just so nice and calm to just sit on the castle and look the city from the top. It reminds me of the castle in Naples, Italy. Definitely one of the best sunset in the world!
