Do’s:

  • Take public transport. Although Pristina doesn’t have an especially efficient public transport system, it is cheap and useful.
  • Private taxis are comparatively costly next to public transport, although they are more comfortable.
  • Drink tap water. It is safe to drink tap water in Pristina as it is clear and fresh.
  • Do visit the National Library of Kosovo as its design is very peculiar.
  • If you have to send mail do it beforehand because it is difficult to send mail from Pristina.
  • If you are having trouble locating a place, ask for help from the locals as they are really cooperative.

Don’t:

  • Don’t wear anything that is scandalous. If visiting any mosques in Kosovo, dress ‘modestly’ – meaning trousers and shirts or T-shirts for men, and for women, long skirts or trousers, conservative tops and something to cover the head.

Night Life

Pristina, although a small place, amazes foreigners with its nightlife. It is mainly located in the Mother Teresa Boulevard, Fehmi Agani Road and Pejton neighborhood. There are a lot of night clubs, discos, and different coffee bars.

  1. Bon Vivant
  2. Hamam Jazz Bar
  3. Taverna Tirona
  4. Blues show at Soma
