Prizren is located in southern Kosovo, 75km southwest of the capital Pristina, and 72km southeast of Peja.

As Kosovo’s ‘cultural capital’ with many summertime festivals and the prettiest city centre of the country, Prizren has what it takes to make an interesting destination for foreign leisure travellers.

This old city with its young population is a great place to visit, be it on a quick stopover en route from Pristina or Skopje to the Albanian coast, or on a longer trip taking in the beautiful mountainous surroundings.

Placed at the foot of the Sharr Mountains and close to the Rahovec (Orahovac) wine region, Kosovo’s second city is rich with history, Ottoman architecture, traditional handicraft shops, a great selection of bars and restaurants, as well as the lovely Sinan Pasha Mosque (one of over 20 mosques in the city)

Prizren is a must see destination for those exploring this beautiful region in the Balkans.


Your can walk up to the castle and get a beautiful view over the city and beyond. When Docufest is on, the castle is used as one of the place showing films under the stars.
