Kosovo Mini Guide
Kosovo lies in south eastern Europe and has a part Serbian and part Albanian population with those being the main languages spoken there. The country is bordered by Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia and Serbia and going via these countries is a good way to get to Kosovo.
It is possible to fly into Macedonia, pick up your Rhino rental vehicle from there and make the journey to Kosovo. It should not take you more than an hour and a half to do so. Driving from Macedonia’s capital city Skopje is equally convenient. Be warned that the roads are often in a terrible state in Kosovo – the war certainly has not helped.
You can also drive to Kosovo from Serbian areas such as the capital Belgrade and through Kosovska Mitrovica. In this area the Mitrovica Bridge is worth seeing as it is the symbol of the divide between Kosovo and Albania, but you should check what the political situation is when travelling in this part of the world.
You should be aware that Serbia does not recognise Kosovo as a country and they will replace your Kosovo stamps with Serbian stamps, however this should not cause you any problems. Also you need to have to have your vehicle registration to show the border guards who will probably ask you to purchase an insurance liability. Inquire with our Rhino representatives if you have any questions.
Pristina is the capital of Kosovo and its international airport has many flights connecting it to the world’s major cities. You can fly from New York, London, Rome
, Vienna and Berlin, to name but a few. It is worth spending some time in Pristina as is has some incredible remnants of the Ottoman Empire such as ancient Muslim mosques.
As of June 2009, every Monday and Thursday there will be flights from Oslo in Norway to Pristina having been newly organised by Norwegian airways. There are a few countries which do not require their citizens to get visas to come to Kosovo including Albania, Australia and Canada, but you should check this with the relevant embassy before you go.
Places to see in Kosovo (which can only be seen by car) are the impressive Rugova gorge which will tower over you as you drive through it, while shoppers will enjoy the Gjakova city bazaar which is a great place to pick up a gift or a souvenir from your trip.
