FAQ

Q. Is Kosovo Safe?

A. Kosovo is very safe. Most Internationals living here say that it is one of the safest places they have been to. Women think nothing of walking home alone at 3am in the morning. There are always people around even at that time, with many all night supermarkets and cafes. When countries put travel warnings out, they are totally exaggerated.

Q. Why are there Albanian flags everywhere?

A. The ethnic Albanians were persecuted for being Albanian and fought under that flag. The EU had a competition for a new flag for Kosovo, but it had restrictions placed on it. It was not allowed to have the colours red or black on it. So the winner was the flag that resembles the EU flag in blue and yellow. Many people hate the blue and yellow flag, but those that were born since the war see it as their flag. Ibrahim Rugova who was the President behind the independence and died six months before it happened, wanted the Dardania flag to be the flag of Kosovo.
