Wander through the Old Bazaar in Peja, admire the cultural capital of Kosovo and visit two UNESCO sites on this 2-day tour of Kosovo. This tour brings you to the most beautiful and important attractions of the country in only two days. All three cities have their own characteristics and charm – worthy of a visit.

Tour Overview

Day 1

Pristina – Peja – Decan – Gjakova – Prizren

Our tour guide will come and pick you up at your hotel in Pristina at 9:00 am. Our first destination for today is Peja. The city has one cultural UNESCO heritage site, the Patriarchate of Peja, located near the entrance of the Rugova Valley. This medieval Orthodox Monastery was built in the 13th century, having four churches in a beautiful red colour. After visiting the monastery, we will wander through the characteristic Old Bazaar of the city. You will get some free time around 12:30 on both days of the tour to enjoy a delicious lunch and wander around by yourself till 14:00. We will continue our tour towards Gjakova. On our way, we will make a stop at the Monastery of Decan. This one stands out for its white colour, but even more remarkable is the fact that Orthodox monks still inhabit the monastery and make fresh organic food there, such as cheeses. The monastery became part of UNESCO in 2004 because of its frescoes, which portray the lives of people during the 14th century as well as the Palaeologan renaissance that changed the way of Byzantine painting. After this, we will arrive in Gjakova. The city has the oldest and largest bazaar of Kosovo. Even though, it got destroyed during the first Balkan wars, the second world war and the Kosovo war, the bazaar got rebuilt again to its old state and is a nice place to enjoy a meal or to take a look at the stores that sell traditional clothing and items. We will also visit the clock tower and the Hadum mosque. The latter was built in the 16th century and somehow managed to survive the wars. Nowadays it shows the beginning of Islamic architecture in the Balkans, covered in stunning arabesque decorations. Overnight in Prizren.
Day 2

Prizren – Pristina

Today we will have a city tour of Prizren. The city is considered to be the cultural capital of Kosovo, mixing its rich history, incredible nature, religious tolerance and gastronomic delights. Prizren has played an important role in the region as an Illyrian settlement and as a crossroad for the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, contributing to the unique architecture of the city. Don’t miss the unique experience of shopping in one of the many filigree shops of the town, where you are welcomed to also see the metalsmithing magic happen. The river flows through the heart of the old town and under the many bridges that crisscross the city. The best way to explore the town is by wandering through the streets passing by elegant medieval houses that fight for your attention. The view from the fortress on the hill above the town offers a great panorama of this astonishing town. We will return to Pristina in the early afternoon.
