Adria Airways offers affordable and convenient flights to Pristina from its hub in Ljubljana, Slovenia, as well as service to dozens of other important European destinations. In fact, the airline has been offering scheduled and charter service to Slovenia for over 50 years, and the airline’s website is the best place to find the best fares and connections from all over Europe. A good general rule for finding cheap airfare is to plan ahead as much as possible, although the carrier often has last minute specials and discounts offered on its website. The website also offers useful information on required documents, travelling with children and animals, baggage requirements and much more.
Pristina is the capital of the relatively new country of Kosovo, which declared its independence from Serbia in 2008. Although it may not seem an obvious destination, this modest sized city offers plenty to see and do, and is a safe destination with established facilities for tourists. Pristina also makes a convenient base to explore this little known and small country, as well as the surrounding area. Kosovo may be small – you can drive across it in a few hours – but it offers some spectacular and unspoiled scenery, historic towns, several World Heritage sights, friendly and welcoming people, and a fascinating culture.
Pristina has a lively buzz to it, as about half the population is under 30. It also has a lively café culture, and one of the most enjoyable things to do here is simply to while away some time at on outdoor table. The city is also a good place to find shopping bargains, especially silver, and one of the best areas to shop is in and around the old quarter. There are several excellent museums in the capital, including the Ethnographic Museum, housed in two beautiful 19th century buildings, and the National Museum. There are several historic mosques that are worth a visit, including the Jashar Pasha mosque, built in the Turkish Baroque style. Within a short distance of the city are plenty of open spaces, and the spectacular marble cave, with its huge rock pillars of different colours.
