Kosovo Prizren

Kosovo Prizren2

Europe’s newest country is also one of its most talked about. Kosovo self-declared independence from Serbia in 2008 and is recognised by more than 100 countries as a nation — but not Serbia, with whom animosity still lingers.

Despite the signs of conflict that still haunt the region, Kosovo is a safe place to travel to. Visitors come for hiking in the Sharr Gorge and Rugova Canyon, to see 13-century monasteries and enjoy mountain villages, but the biggest draw is the welcome of Kosovans who want you to enjoy their fledgling state.

If you’re after off-the-beaten-path Europe, it doesn’t get much more unspoilt than Kosovo.
