Known for its mix of cultures, Prizren offers Byzantine architecture and Albanian culinary delights.

Overflowing with history and friendly locals, Gjakova treats travellers to the ancient Hadum Mosque, the Clock Tower and Čaršia, a charming shopping street steeped in Ottoman heritage.

Rugova Valley

An untouched, stunning expanse making up one of Kosovo’s highly rated nature parks, Rugova Valley is the ideal destination for outdoorsy travellers, offering activities such as hiking, paragliding and skiing.

Where to Stay

From the cosmopolitan wonders of Pristina to the serene beauty of the Rugova Valley, here are some recommendations on where to stay in Kosovo depending on your travelling companions.

For family holidays

Pristina is a superb base for a family holiday, where the Granicë/Germia National Park provides opportunity for biking and picnics. Prizren, rich in family-friendly attractions like the Kalaja Fortress, is also an enticing alternative.

For a couples holiday

For couples, a stay in Gjakova can provide much-needed tranquillity, adorned with romantic cafes and a charming old town vibe. The pristine Rugova Valley is another enticing option for couples looking for an escape amongst nature's splendour.

For a holiday with friends

The lively city of Pristina, bustling with an exciting culinary scene and lively nightlife, is a fantastic choice for a friends' holiday. For groups seeking adventure, Pejë serves as a gateway to the Rugova Mountains, offering exciting outdoor activities.

When to Visit

Kosovo enjoys warm, dry summers and cold, snowy winters, presenting very much a continental type of climate.

The most appealing time to visit is between May and September when the weather is warmest and the country's natural landscapes are in full bloom. From sporadic showers gracing the valleys in May to balmy temperatures in July and August, it's the perfect time for exploring both urban delights and outdoor spectacle.

The winter season, from December to February, sees the nation blanketed in snow, transforming particularly the Rugova mountains into a beautiful vista. For those who fancy skiing or simply challenging the cold for a cosy winter holiday, it's a viable option too.
