Pristina — 1 night

Long regarded as a gray and traffic-congested provincial town with little tourist appeal, Pristina today possesses a youthful vibrance and a newfound sense of sophistication, as the result of the city's large community of foreign functionaries.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Wed): contemplate the long history of Medieval Monuments in Kosovo, get advice or help at Pristina National Library, explore the different monuments and memorials at Tomb of Sultan Murat, then appreciate the history behind Statue of Mother Tereza, and finally walk around Germia Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 5th (Thu): appreciate the history behind Bill Clinton Statue, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Katedrale Nënë Tereza, pause for some photo ops at Newborn Monument, then get engrossed in the history at Kosovo Museum, then take an in-depth tour of Ethnographic Museum (Muzeu Etnologjik), and finally admire the striking features of Džamija cara.

Plan my trip to Pristina with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Ankara, Turkey to Pristina is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Ankara to Pristina due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can drive to Prizren.

Kosovo travel guide

A disputed territory in the central Balkans, Kosovo is considered by many nations to be Europe's newest country. The independent state, once part of Serbia, has no shortage of colorful history. Tourism is still a small industry in the country, and visitors will witness the scars of war as recently as 1999, when Serbia revoked the territory's autonomy. Today, Kosovo is mainly ethnically Albanian, with a Serb majority in the north, as well as large numbers of ethnic minorities. Active UN troops still work in the country, guarding Serbian monasteries that date back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Despite this, Kosovo is a safe and stable country to visit to explore off-the-beaten path. The mix of World Heritage Sites, wild countryside, and welcoming hospitality will surely bring visitors in droves as the word gets out.
