Cheap flights to Pristina
Pristina is a city in flux that is buzzing with its new found freedom and self identity. You won’t find many cities in Europe with such an exciting atmosphere.
Pristina really is a city where politics, recent history, ancient history and day-to-day life collide. Where stark communist blocks lie next to striking remnants of its Ottoman past. Beautiful 15th century mosques, hamams, clock towers and bazaars are all here to give you that distinctive eastern feeling. Amongst all this you’ll find the hustle and bustle of the city’s community life, mostly through the hum of the open-air cafes that flank the streets, particularly in Dardania. Sitting and drinking coffee is a national pastime and you’ll be hard pushed to get a better macchiato anywhere in the world. And when they’re not feeding their caffeine addictions the locals like nothing better than to hit the bars around Rexhep Luci and Peyton, where musical preferences range from dance and rock to hip-hop and jazz.
And throughout the city you’ll find fabulous eateries selling everything from local dishes to high-class cuisine, not to mention good quality kebab vendors on every corner.
The 7th annual Chopin Piano Festival is on from 11 - 24 April in the centre of Pristina. Enjoy live performances two or three nights a week by both local and international pianists in addition to symposiums and roundtables dedicated to various influential composers. www.chopinkosova.com
From the end of November to the beginning of January, don't miss Prishtina's Christmas Market and all the lights that spring up between Zahir Pajaziti Square and Skanderbeg Square on Mother Teresa Boulevard.
During the winter months, there is no better escape from Prishtina than to the mountains of Rugova. In less than two hours you can be skiing the modest slopes in Bogë, the area's largest village, at nearly a quarter of the price you'd normally pay in the rest of Europe.
