Discover Kosovo

Package 1: Kosovo Sightseeing Tour

We start our adventure in welcoming Kosovo, at the heart of the Balkans, walking & exploring the most notable’s sights for seven days. In Kosovo the influence of east and west is intertwined, Christianity coexists with Islam. A place with a difficult history that was ruled by the Roman Empire, various Byzantine kingdoms and the Ottoman Empire. After World War remained under the rule of Yugoslavia till 1999, when after the NATO bombing came under the international protectorate. From 2008, Kosovo is an independent state.

Since the ancient times until the middle ages, it was known as Dardania and included the territories of Northern Macedonia and Southern Serbia today. Kosovo is a country of geographical and cultural contrasts with a thousand years old diverse cultural heritage. There are nearly 11,000 km² and around 1.8 million inhabitants, a mixed population of which the majority are ethnic Albanians.

A landlocked country, Kosovo is surrounded by almost all sides of the mountains through which the border crosses with neighbouring countries. Unlike stereotypes and prejudices that you could hear about unknown places, in Kosovo, you will be surprised by the tolerant and very welcoming spirit of the people. This is also a place where you can enjoy delicious meals of international, oriental and traditional cuisine.
