A partly recognised country in the South eastern part of Europe, Kosovo was declared Independent only in February 2008. With Albania, Montenegro, and Macedonia bordering the country on three sides, the fourth is the Serbia, which is in the north east. The Albanian name for Kosovo is Kosova, which is how some of the locals refer to this country. A country that has been caught in some conflict or the other has put off tourists for a long time, till recently when it was declared safe and tourist friendly.

While making a trip to visit Kosovo, carry a local guide and have these lists of five things one must see while in that part of the world, to help you have a good time and see all the sights in store.

A city of high spiritual significance lies in the town of Kosovska Mitrovica. A town that was deeply affected during the Kosovo war is a place that should be visited by everyone going to Kosovo. This is the place that was divided with the Mitrovica bridge, that is also another sight that visitors can check out while here.

The huge citadel in the middle of the city is where all the main activities and events take place. The Petrovaradin as it is called is the hub of activity, filled with locals displaying their ware and giving performances during the evenings. A majestic fortress known as the Gibraltar of Danube stands tall amidst all the activities, which is a place that tourists visit to learn about the history of Kosovo.

 

The Mitrovica Bridge is another popular tourist attraction in Kosovo. An interesting way of symbolising the division of population in Kosovo is through the bridge. This bridge acts like the dividing line between the Serbs and Albanians in Mitrovica, part of the country. For people who are curious, they can walk on to the bridge and catch a glimpse of what it is like on the other side. But be careful, there might be restrictions on when you can visit the place, and when you cannot.

The Rugova Gorge is located to the north western side of the town of Pec and is quite easy to find. If one were to drive down the road that leads to the Pec Patriarchy, they would see the Gorge right in front of their eyes. The huge Gorge is nearly 300 meters deep and has steep walls that go all the way down.

Gjakova Old Bazaar is another popular place with tourists to Kosovo. If you are someone who loves looking at local stores and doing a bit of shopping, there is a very beautiful old shopping centre which has been around since the 17th century. It was initially burned down by the Serbian Army forces but today has been reconstructed and is open to public. One would find plenty of local trinkets and knick knacks here that they can buy and take back home with them. The centre of the bazaar has an old mosque that was built in the 15th century.
