A Young Nation: Energetic and Evolving

Kosovo

Kosovo has a reputation for fine skiing and mountaineering, sadly interrupted by years of war and ethnic strife.  Its UNESCO-listed medieval monasteries and its Ottoman heritage combine with the traditional hospitality of its people to entice travelers back to its charming cities and towns.  Great roads, sophisticated cafés and shops and a forward-looking young population make this an inviting destination.

Pristina

Pristina is the capital of Kosovo, the Balkans territory that declared independence from Serbia in February of 2008. The population of more than 500,000 has a majority of ethnic Albanians. In existence since late Roman times, Pristina was an important Serbian capital for many years before it was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in the late 14th century. Architecture and culture were strongly influenced by its years under Ottoman rule.
