Pristina, a day trip to Kosovo from North Macedonia

Pristina, a day trip to Kosovo from North Macedonia

After the unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo has become the newest country in Europe. Still not recognised as an independent country by many nations, this landlocked territory is off the radar for most international visitors.

During my last visit to neighbouring North Macedonia, I decided to take a day trip to Pristina, the capital of Kosovo. Although the city lacks in historical sites, a visit to Europe’s youngest capital with its numerous cafes and welcoming people is still a must. I even was lucky enough to spot former President Bill Clinton, who was in town to celebrate the 20th anniversary since the NATO drove out the Serbian forces and put this former province on the path to independence!
