Prizren


Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue
The real Balkans.
Located in the heart of Balkans, Prizren is a town of opposites. Dating back to the 11th century, Prizren has for a long time been home to Albanian, Serbian and Turkish communities, and retains many unique customs and cultures. The layout and architecture of the town reflects all this, with beautiful, untouched mosques and churches scattered around the town. Once the capital of Kosovo, Prizren is still regarded as the country's cultural center. During the Yugoslavian era, this town was on the outskirts of the country, and known for its military training base. Divided by the River Bistrica into two banks, Prizren is a great place to indulge in historical sites as well as walks along the water and on the bridges.

We recommend spending two nights in Prizren, in order to enjoy a day trip to Prishtina, and still have a day to explore Prizren and its surroundings.
