Local time Pristina


Pristina Nightlife

Whether you mingle with ex-pats downing Guinness and Budweiser or the trendier Kosovar IT-crowd in hip nightclubs, there is beer, bonhomie and banging tunes to suit all tastes, particularly around Garibaldi and Fehmi Agani streets, and Pejton (Peyton) district.

Pristina has a modest yet growing cultural scene as Albanian-Kosovar identity rediscovers self-expression. Show ticket prices are extremely inexpensive. Keep tabs on events in Pristina Insight (tel: (038) 243 358), a free, bi-weekly publication usually featuring theatre and cinema listings.
