Prishtina - "Ugly" City With a Great Vibe

Prishtina - "Ugly" City With a Great Vibe, Pristina, Serbia (B)

Prishtina (or Pristina) is the capital of one of the newest states on the planet - Kosovo. Although not recognized by all the nations, it's de facto an independent country with full government and organizations. Prishtina (with the exception of Minsk in Belarus) is probably the least visited capital in Europe. Having suffered tremendously turbulent events in recent history - it's not the most beautiful or charming city in the world. Many of the old parts were destroyed during the war and now Prishtina has an appearance of a newly built city - many districts still look like big construction sites. Nevertheless, Prishtina has that "something" and I really miss it - the relaxed and friendly locals, crazy architecture, superb food and the vibrant streets in summer evenings.

You can fly to Prishtina from quite a few European airports, however the easiest way to get there is simply to take a bus from one of the neighboring countries: from Albania - Tirana and Durres, from Serbia - Belgrade, Sarajevo - Bosnia and Herzegovina or Montenegro - Podgorica. ......
