Kosovo

Despite what the media may have some believe, Kosovo is a safe country to visit that welcomes with a unique blend of medieval art, untouched nature and exceptionally friendly locals. Kosovo’s countryside in the heart of the Balkans, with its picturesque mountain ranges, tranquil lakes and cascading waterfalls that appear out of nowhere is truly worth visiting, alongside the beautiful cities of Prizren and Pristina – two stops you should not miss. Another bonus is the very reasonable pricing for accommodation, transportation and food, which all make Kosovo one of Europe’s most inexpensive countries. Discover Europe’s newest country and explore a destination that is definitely off the beaten track.

Pristina

Few places in Europe have remained off the beaten path as much as the Kosovar first city; fewer yet have been at the heart of a political dispute as agonising in recent history. Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, one of the world's youngest states, boasts a youthful populace to match, and exudes a lust for life that's virtually tangible. Still rough around the edges and with no tourist information offices in sight, Pristina remains uncharted territory, a state of affairs foreseen to change as the city attracts a growing number of visitors.
