Photographer's Note

First, I would advise TrekEarth to make Kosovo a separate country in their lists. Although I understand the Serbian claim, Kosovo functions as an independent country.

Prizren is a city with a long history. For me, this was a very pleasant surprise. I had just spent some days in Albania, where I felt like almost every single person tried to fool me with money. The landscape is nice though, and I met some nice people in a remote valley.

I eventually ended up in a small village, where the local bus to the capital - Tirana - actually straddles through Kosovo. They told me they could drop me off in Prizren. 7 km outside the city, they told me to get out.

I had no idea what to do, so I just started walking towards what seemed to be the city. I had luck. Quickly after, someone picked me up and drove me to Prizren. Kosovo-Albanians made a much better impression.

Prizren is going to see a big increase in the number of tourists within the next years. It's a very cozy place, and it felt very vibrant in the evening. Full of good quality restaurants and local people. I can highly recommend visiting this cozy town. I felt completely safe, and also did a walk late in the evening to the castle overlooking the town. The view is unforgettable.
