Nature is beautiful in Kosovo, and picturesque green mountains surround you everywhere. The most interesting thing that can be seen in this region is just these nature places, as well as old Serbian monasteries. On the way to the capital there are some small villages. Everything looks accurately enough.
Kosovars sell such stakes. Notice that a citizen on the right wears the traditional Kosovar cap.
The neighborhood of Muslim religion and culture with the Serbian Orthodox Church is quite surprising. For example, a mosque in two meters from the church is an ordinary thing.
Sometimes modern buildings, like warehouses, shops or colleges appear in the field.
Roads are in good condition everywhere.

Kosovars and local Albanians are hospitable enough, though, and they can make you be always on guard. They have no prejudice for Russian-speaking people or Serbs. Probably it is the only place where a bus driver can stop in the middle of the road, go out and buy fruit juice for everybody and it would be absolutely free.
A densely populated city in the distance is Pristina.
The hotel with a symbolic name for locals.
Local fuelling stations use state symbols. In general, the flag of Kosovo is something between the flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the EU flag.
The central bus station.
A dangerous zone where may be mines. A stand with a warning about mines and parts of the body, which could be torn as a result of contact with them. Therefore, it is not a good place to play football.
An excursion around the city begins with Bill Clinton Boulevard.
Probably many people who have read about Kosovo know this place.
Here is a quote of the former U.S. leader who (by the opinion of Kosovars and Albanians) gave the independence to their land : “All I want for you it’s a good future and I will do everything to support this idea till the rest of my life”.
Next to the monument to Clinton, there is the store “Hillary”.
Peacekeeping troops can often be noticed in the roads.
This building should have been an Orthodox church, but it had not enough time to be finished. Now local authorities do not know what to do with it, but they are afraid to destroy the building.
From a gastronomic point of view, Kosovo is not a very attractive region. Here, the local fast food is in demand, this is a very spicy analogue of pizza.
The main city street – the street of Mother Teresa, who is regarded as perhaps the only respectable Albanian woman.
The monument of Mother Teresa.
Then goes the historic part of town, which is represented by an old tower and mosques.
A controversial poster that tells about the denial of Islam in the world.
The memory wall dedicated to the fighters for independence of Kosovo. The majority of killed persons is young guys with hot blood.
Even children here walk with guns.
And it is not surprising as guns are sold right in the streets.
A local market.
Souvenir industry is not well developed.
It is said that there are a lot of expensive cars in Kosovo, and they are all stolen from Europe.
Albanians again are protesting against something.
A history ghost – a terrible Albanian king.
Kosovo is certainly worth to visit as here tourists can see not only beautiful nature or historical monuments, but feel the real and not easy life of locals.
