About this book

Ringed by high mountains and once ravaged by ethnic tensions, Kosovo is enjoying a tourism renaissance. Welcoming Kosovars have rebuilt their country and now is the perfect time to discover the potential of this once-unknown region. Fully updated and revised by two Kosovo experts, who both lived in the newly independent state for many years, Bradt's Kosovo explores a land rich in cultural heritage and stunning scenery. From hip urban hotspots to remote mosques and monasteries, Kosovo offers up delights for every type of traveller. With detailed descriptions of the lively café culture as well as the burgeoning restaurant, bar and shopping scene, plus accommodation to suit all budgets, this second edition to a ground-breaking guide is the ideal companion for tourists, NGOs and long-term visitors.

Kosovo
Review by Marissa Hart
I have used a fair few guidebooks in my time and I can say without any hesitation that it stands head and shoulders above the rest.The information is contains and the attention to detail meant that the trip was well planned...and it greatly facilitated my independent travelling. In addition to this, the book has blazed a trail by going a long way towards breaking down barriers and prejudices towards this very beautiful country. As far as guidebooks go, I consider this one to be the gold standard to which other guidebooks should aspire.
