Kosovo: The Bradt Travel Guide

Front Cover
Bradt Travel Guides, 2010 - Travel - 326 pages

Kosovo is ringed by high mountains, ravaged by ethnic tensions, yet its renaissance is just a breath away. Rebuilding is all but complete, domestic tensions have eased and with the help of welcoming Kosovars, the country is emerging as one of the most exciting tourist destinations in southeastern Europe. Written by two Kosovo experts, who lived in the newly independent state for many years, Bradt’s Kosovo explores gorges and mountains,  mosques and kullas, and soaks up the café culture with a macchiato or a glass of fiery raki. From hip urban hotspots to remote monasteries, Kosovo offers up many delights to the adventurous traveller who steps off the beaten path. With revised and detailed descriptions of the growing number of restaurants, bars and shops, plus accommodation to suit all budgets, this second edition to a groundbreaking guide is a vital tool for tourists, NGOs and long-term visitors.

This is a must have book for anyone traveling to or living in Kosovo. It has been a great resource. It does contain more than a spattering of "wry" (and sometimes overtly negative) comments that expats tend to like to throw in when evaluating their place of overseas residence. Your experience will be enhanced if you ignore these comments and look at Kosovo with a positive eye and respect for the progress that has been made.
