Marble Cave

The Gadime Cave is a 20-minute drive outside of Pristina and is a good stopover on the way to Prizren. Unlike other limestone caves, this one is mostly made of marble. Part of the cave is open to visitors. Due to the special acoustics, concerts have also been held here. You reach the "concert hall" after a short descent. In addition, there are many unusual stone formations to admire on the tour that give free rein to the imagination.

Prizren - Cultural Stronghold

From Pristina, the historical city of Prizren can be reached in about 1.5 hours by car. The old town with its diverse buildings and oriental flair invites you to amble. You cannot help but notice all the striking flowers that adorn the alleys and houses. This remarkable sight gives Prizren the nickname "City of Lilies". As you can see, it is not only its cultural diversity that makes this city one of the most beautiful places in Kosovo.

Peja - Starting Point for Rugova Mountains Exploration

The town of Peja is located at the foot of the Albanian Alps in the tri-border area of Montenegro, Albania, and Kosovo. In the nearby Rugova Gorge, the oldest via ferrata of the Balkans awaits you. It was built by former rebels. During the 2–3-hour ascent and descent you will be offered impressive views of the surrounding mountains. The gorge forms a spectacular section of the Peaks of the Balkans ridge trail.

Macchiato in Gjakova

The small town of Gjakova is home to countless mosques and a clock tower. Socialising is part of the streetscape and the many cafes absolutely worth a visit.
