Kosova

Kosova

The natural wealth of Kosovo represents high quality tourism resources.

The description of Kosovo's potential in tourism is closely related to its geographic position.

Kosovo's position in south-eastern Europe, with a central location in the Balkan Peninsula, represents a crossroad which historically dates back to Illyrian and Roman times.

Defined by its castle, roads paved with chunky limestone and shale, imposing slate-roofed houses and views out to the Drina Valley, Gjirokastra is a magical hillside town described beautifully by Albania's

most famous author, Ismail Kadare (b 1936), in Chronicle in Stone. There has been a settlement here for 2500 years, though these days it's the 600 'monumental' Ottoman-era houses in town that attract visitors. The town is also synonymous for Albanians with former dictator Enver Hoxha, who was born here and ensured the town was relatively well preserved under his rule; though he is not memorialised in any way here today. Far less touristy than Berat, the town is equally as charming and has several fascinating sights, as well as some excellent accommodation options.
