    Our professional tour guide will come and pick you up at your hotel in Pristina at 9:00 am.

    Stop At: Gracanica Monastery, Gracanica Kosovo
    The first destination of today is the Gracanica monastery. This monastery is seen as one of the most attractive ones in Kosovo. Inside of the church, you have to cover your knees and shoulders and women must wear a head scarf. You first enter the large chapel that has many medieval paintings. The smaller chapel is even more impressive with murals in bright colours. It is not allowed to take pictures inside, luckily the outside is just as picture-worthy.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Ulpiana, Lipljan, Gracanica Kosovo
    After the monastery, our tour will continue to Ulpiana. You would probably not expect this in Kosovo, but the country has its own Roman Empire ruins. The ancient city of Ulpiana was an important centre of activity politically, economically and culturally. Many objects have been found on the site as well, such as sculptures of a woman’s head, a man’s head and a theatrical mask. You can still see the divisions between the different rooms and even a few stones are engraved with scriptures dating back to the Roman era.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Kalaja Fortress, Kalaja, Prizren 20000 Kosovo
    Our final destination is Prizren. The city is considered to be the cultural capital of Kosovo, mixing its rich history, incredible nature, religious tolerance and gastronomic delights. You will get some free time around 12:30 on every day of the tour to enjoy a delicious lunch and wander around by yourself till 14:00. 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.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Prizren, Prizren

The tombstone is covered with carvings in the shape of grapes, which would indicate the long history of wine in the region.

    We will continue our tour to another natural wonder, the Mirusha waterfalls, standing out from all the other waterfalls in the Balkans. It is a famous site in the country consisting out of two separate waterfalls. The water has created canyons around the waterfalls, making the site even more impressive.

    Our destination for today is the city of 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.

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.

You can still see the bullet holes in the original house and Adem Jashari is buried nearby. In 1998, the Serbian police force launched an attack that caused the lives of Adem Jashari and 50 family members. The deaths of the Jashari family sparked protests all around Kosovo.
