Meet at your hotel. At 07:00 departure to Prizren, Kosovo's second biggest and one of the most beautiful cities.
Prizren (approximately 3 hours). Located at the foot of the Sar Mountains, this city was first inhabited by the Romans in second century AD, while the Ottomans and the Byzantines also left their mark in the architecture of the cityscape.
Luckily it was also spared destruction during the 1999 conflict. On arrival, head out an orientation walk of Prizren, walking alongside the Bistrica river, taking in the cobbled fountain square and the Old Stone Bridge.
Explore the city’s famous mosques and contrast it with abandoned Serbian Orthodox churches that stand as sombre reminders of the ethnic divisions that still simmer just under the surface. Wander the bazaar or admire some of the traditional jewelery in the many filigree shops before another memorable Balkan sunset and a required glass or raki.
The trip will follow to Prizren's sixth century Fortress. This sixth century fortress sits proudly on a hilltop above the town and has a 43-step staircase hidden in a tunnel that connects to the river, giving you a great sense of discovery and view over the city.
Make sure you visit the House of the Albanian League of Prizren, where in 1878 the Assembly of Prizren gathered to consolidate Albanian leaders to unite and protect the country against foreign threats. There's plenty to see and do in this exciting city. For many Prizren is the gastronomic heart of Kosovo, and it’s a great place to browse confectionaries, try qebaptore (barbeque) restaurants, and snack on djathë i Sharrit (Shar cheese) and tullumba (syrup soaked filo pastry). If you’re feeling adventurous then maybe try the food in the Old Bazaar and eat the local delicacy of deep fried lamb brains.
