Walking tours

With tourism so new in Kosovo there is little in the way of organized city tours, and guides remain in short supply.

Pristina excursions

Novo Brdo

Just 30km (18 miles) north of Pristina, the mountains and rustic villages around Novo Brdo are a breath of fresh air. Besides opportunities for hiking and mountain biking and visiting ancient citadels, a well-run rural tourism project has been established to enable visitors to stay and eat with both Albanian and Serb Kosovar villagers and experience wonderful hospitality. Highly recommended.

Tel: (+377) (044) 465 471.


Experience atmospheric traditional Albanian architecture of mosques and three-storied wood and stone houses known as kulla in Gjakovë, located 90 minutes from Pristina. Amid cobblestone streets, one elegantly restored example of a kulla, dating partially back to the 17th century, is Hotel Çarshia e Jupave (tel: (390) 326 798). It offers scrumptious Albanian cuisine.
