Located in the center of Southeastern Europe, Republic of Kosovo is sometimes referred to as the "Heart of the Balkans." Landlocked and ringed by mountains, Kosovo is bordered by Serbia to the north and east, the Republic of Macedonia to the south, Albania to the southwest, and Montenegro to the northwest. The largest city and the capital of Kosovo is Prishtina, while other principal cities includes Peja, Prizreni, Gjakova, Gjilani, Ferizaji and Mitrovica.
Kosovo is easily accessed via direct flights from London, Vienna, Budapest, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Verona, Tirana, Istanbul, etc. It is somewhat more difficult to reach by car, with a major entry point along the Macedonian border at Hani i Elezit/Blace. Secondary-road border posts are located at Glloboçica (if coming from southern Macedonia); Vërmica, Morina and Qafë Prushi (Albania); Gryka e Çakorit and Zhlebi (Montenegro); and Merdare, Dheu i Bardhë, Muqibaba, Jarinje, and Gazivoda (Serbia).
Once in Kosovo (or Kosova, as it is spelled in Albanian), getting from one place to another is a breeze, thanks to decent main roads, a very punctual public transport system, and taxi drivers who can get you from one end (or side) of Kosovo to the other in an hour-and-a-half to two hours. The entire country can be seen in 2-3 days, if you're touring.
For more information about Kosovo's many sites and attractions, feel free to stop by our office, located across the street from the central police station in downtown Pristina. We'd be happy to point you in the right direction.
Pristina International Airport "ADEM JASHARI" is located 18 km southwest of Pristina and 50-80 km from all other major cities. Taxis from the airport to Pristina's city center shouldn't cost more than 10-15 euros. (If your driver doesn't have a meter, find one who does; it's the law.)
