Pristina is the capital and largest city of Kosovo. It is a vibrant, modern city with a rich history and culture, as well as boasting being one of the newest countries in the world.
These are my favorite places to visit when in Pristina, Kosovo :
The Newborn Monument
One of Kosovo’s and Pristina’s pride and joy, a giant metal sculpture in the shape of the word “Newborn,” which was created to mark Kosovo’s declaration of independence in 2008. This is for sure a must visit when in town!
The Clock Tower
Standing out ironically, the historic clock tower in the center of Pristina -built in the 18th century- is part of any proper visit to the city.
The Mother Teresa Cathedral
Perhaps the most important cathedral in the region, located in the center of Pristina, it’s named after the famous humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mother Theresa.
