Good question which i can't really answer. During the last ladies weekend in Budapest, we wanted to fix a date in the future as it is
not so easy to get one date per year for a weekend which suits all. So said, we quickly had an agreement on the date. Second step: find a place where none of us has been before. Third step: Check
out the website of easyjet to find a cheap flight to a destination we've never been
As soon as we've booked the flight, we started research of what we could do in Pristina and this led to the question again: Why Pristina? in February, where it will be freezing and there is nothing to do? Plus we have to book a night at the airport hotel in Basel as the flight was at 7.00 am!
Well although the preconditions were not the best, we all agreed on giving Pristina a chance and so we headed to Kosovo in the early morning for an extended weekend.
And I have to say, we got surprised in a positive way - these are my highlights of the trip:
You named it, my highlights were mostly food and drinks which were really delicious and super super affordable (a meal cost about 5 EUR) and I liked the small cafés, bar and restaurants. The
people we met where very friendly too. After the weekend I just feld like ended up in a smoker as a lot of people smoke and it is in most of the places allowed.
Overall I can say, it was a cool weekend, mostly because it doesn't matter where we go, we always have a good and fun time and this count the most.
I can recommend Pristina for a visit if you're on a Balkan Roundtrip to visit the city as well. If you do not go further you can cover the main sights within one / two days.
