Welcome to the Kosovo hub at David’s Been Here! Here, you will find all of my travel guides and travel episodes from my time in Kosovo back in October of 2020. Kosovo is the youngest country in Europe, having gained its independence in 2008. It’s the 79th country I’ve visited, as well as my second-to-last Balkan nation (Romania is the final Balkan country I need to explore). I had an amazing time touring this Balkan country for nine whirlwind days with my friend Erjan Guxha from Travel Media EU.
I crossed over into Kosovo via the city of Kukës in northern Albania. Our first stop was the mountain ski village of Brod, before we passed through Dragash on our way to Prizren. From there, we continued northeast, briefly exploring the cities of Rahovec and Gjakova before arriving in Peja. Then, we stayed in the capital, Pristina, for two days, and then continued on to Gjilan and Ferizaj. Then, we doubled back to Pristina so I could catch my flight home via Istanbul. During our road trip, I fully immersed myself in Kosovar culture, exploring ancient cities, beautiful caves and waterfalls, cultural and archaeological sites, unique markets, and much more. Of course, I also ate my way through each city, diving deep into the meat- and dairy-rich cuisine, which can also be quite spicy!
Below, please find all of my Kosovo articles and videos listed in order. I hope they inspire you to visit this relatively unknown country in southeastern Europe and that they help you plan your own Kosovo road trip. While I can’t say that Kosovo was the easiest country to navigate, there were so many highlights. So many people showed me kindness and a level of hospitality that the Balkans are known for. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
