DescriptionPrizren, considered to be the cultural capital of Kosovo, is a charming and vivacious town surrounded by mountains. It is an authentic and little-known treasure hidden in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula. You will travel for 2 hours towards Prizren in the morning, meeting your local guide for a walking tour of the city upon arrival. Throughout your walking tour you'll enter the Sinan Pasha Mosque, the UNESCO-listed Church of Our Lady of Ljevis, the Museum of Prizren League, and the Ottoman Old Town, which is known for its gold and silver filigree craftsmen. Later, enjoy free time for lunch and wandering through the streets as you pass by elegant medieval houses and a castle for amazing views from above. Prizren has the largest number of preserved Ottoman buildings in Kosovo, so simply wandering the old cobbled streets admiring the town houses, mosques, and tekkes is a delight. You'll transfer to Tirana in the late afternoon, with a short stop in the town of Rubik on your way back.
