Sightseeings in Prishtina and Kosovo


Kosovo Museum

  The Ulpiana archaeological park


Founded in 1949 by Yugoslav authorities, it is the largest museum in Kosovo, located in an Austro-Hungarian-style building from 1889.

The museum is the earliest institution of cultural heritage in Kosovo, established with the goal of preserving, restoration-conservation and presentation of movable heritage on the territory. It is situated in a special facility, from an architectural point of view but also because of its location since it is situated at the old nucleus of the city centre.

Founded in 1949, the Kosovo Museum has departments of archeology, ethnographt, and natural science, to which a department for the study of history and the National Liberation Struggle was added in 1959.
  Ulpiana was founded during the reign of the Roman Emperor Marcus Ulpius Traianus, in the years 98-117 B.C. However, the main development of its infrastructure and civilisation began in the 3rd and 4th centuries, and as a result the city became known an Municipum Ulpiana Splendissima, or Ulpiana – the Great City.

Ruins have been discovered in Ulpiana that shed some light on the daily life of those that lived there more than 500 years ago. Not only had the city’s founders constructed a well-developed road system, but also an entirely functional water supply, living corridors and public buildings.

The Newborn Monument

  The Cathedral of Saint Mother Teresa


The Newborn Monument (NEWBORN) is a typographic sculpture and tourist attraction in Pristina, located in front of the Palace of Youth and Sports. The monument was unveiled on 17 February 2008, the day that Kosovo formally declared its independence. The monument consists of the English-language word "Newborn" in capital block letters, which were painted bright yellow when the sculpture was first revealed. The monument was later re-painted with the flags of the states that have recognized Kosovo.

National Parks in Kosovo:     
Šar Mountains National Park
Bjeshkët e Nemuna National Park
  The Imperial Mosque in Pristina



You’ll find the national parks of Kosovo in the far south of the country and in its westernmost corner. Two major tourist towns serve as the gateway to each park. Those are respectively Prizren to Šar Mountains National Park in the south and Peć (or Peja) to Bjeshkët e Nemuna National Park in the west. This makes it exceptionally easy to combine culture and nature in Kosovo.
