Ethnographic Museum (Muzeu Etnologjik)

Reviewed By Fauconberg - Leeds, United Kingdom

Fantastic legacy of and insight into Kosovan history. It’s tucked up off the beaten track a little but well worth the trek to it, plus some good stop offs en-route. Absolutely superb guide/curator who was informative, engaging and entertaining just the best should be! Highly recommend this, it’s also free and close to the excellent bazaar/market area.

Germia Park

Reviewed By Funkids4 - London, United Kingdom

We visited Germia park and went to the outdoor pool. The pool itself is big, but only has basic facilities. The stunning location makes it worth a visit. Nice to escape the crazy traffic and pollution of the city for some fresh air.

The building is quite ugly but at the same time it's in a way impressive to look at. Worth to just pass by when you're in Pristina

Fatih Mosque (Xhamia e Mbretit)

Reviewed By FOL-1003 - Berlin, Ohio

... you walk towards the hills, road up from city centre. You pass one small mosque under deep construction. You pass anotherone, small, finished w Turkish help, and Finally - you get to see this one.
Its nice, yellow-white shiny.
Its in use. A chap inside helps tourists "behave" and speaks excellent English.
Outside in yard, a green and a Fountain to refresh and wash before entry.
Apparently 500y old and built by Sultan Ahmed, like one in Istambul.

Mother Teresa Cathedral

Pristina’s new Cathedral, unofficially named after the famous ethnic Albanian nun, is a welcome addition to city’s skyline. Built in new-renaissance Italianate style, its two campanile towers will reach 70 metres once completed, but building work appears to have slowed down since the venue’s consecration in September 2010. Some €1 million was raised for the building by the Albanian diaspora. While the building is open to public, remember it’s still a building site so say your prayers before entering.

Reviewed By Fauconberg - Leeds, United Kingdom

Very impressive sight, both externally and internally and indeed from on high! The regular dinging bells make a nice addition to the overall atmosphere of Prishtina too. Some very interesting stained glass which you can sort of interpret but a summary underneath would have been helpful. Definitely do the lift to the top of the tower for cracking views across the city.

Newborn Monument

Reviewed By pauweldesmedt - Geneva, Switzerland

The monument itself isn't very impressive, but the story behind and the fact that Kosovo is still in a struggle to get recognized as a nation makes this spot for sure worth a small visit

Tomb of Sultan Murad

Reviewed By emfromsydney - Sydney, Australia

Given that everybody's version of historical events differs, I think my guide did an excellent job of portraying the events insightfully, interestingly and did his best to present an unbiased view of the facts as well has highlight the historical inaccuracies and uncertainties. He also managed to present his information with skillful humour. Visiting the Tomb of Sultan Murad was a great way to get to know just one piece in the puzzle of Kosovo's long and complicated history.
To get there, catch the bus headed for Mitrovica from the main bus station in Prishtina. After about 10minutes, keep an eye out on your left for the large sign for the Sultan Murat Turbe... ask the driver to stop as soon as you see the sign. It is about a 350m walk from the main road down a dirt track/road. There is a café/mini market next to the sign on the main road. The trip costs 50cents on the bus but you need to ask the driver to stop. From here you can walk back along the highway towards Prishtina about 2kms, cross the road "Balkan Style" (i.e. there is no crossing) and head up the hill to the Tower at Gazimestan.

ALBI Shopping Mall

Reviewed By Ebazinam - Oklahoma

What a great place to be in Kosovo. The mall is very modern and the shops are top notch. Come in and relax to an oasis of capitalism. The food establishments on the top floor are very good and range in prices and quality. The cinema is exceptional and shows the latest movies. Parking is a problem, but once you are inside it is very nice.

Skanderbeg statue

Reviewed By Creeping_Death_LA - Los Angeles, California

Yes its just another statue on this pedestrian walkway nothing more nothing less. I don't know who this historic figure is but the statue is a good starting point for a leisurely walk through the city. If you find this city to be boring maybe you should stick with Las Vegas or Disneyland for your next vacation.

Statue of Mother Tereza

Reviewed By Ebazinam - Oklahoma

Mother Teresa was born into a Kosovar Albanian family in Skopje, Macedonia. She is widely revered throughout Kosovo and the region. The statue on Mother Teresa Avenue, in Kosovo pays homage to her legacy and her love for people. It is part of a stroll that you can take through the heart of Pristina along the avenue.
