Tour Detailed Program
Departing from Tirana at 7:30 AM from your Hotel or in front of our office, drive towards the border to Kosovo in Morina. On the ride, you will immediately be able to spot the differences between Tirana city life and rural life in Albania. In the countryside, the footprints of the communist regime are still notable and on your way, you can see what is left of the former industrial cities built during that period. Cross the border Once we arrive in Prizren, also called, “the city of the 50 mosques”, we will head to the castle. This fortress is also known as the "Prizren Crown" because just like a crown, it surrounds the hill overlooking the city. From here you can enjoy a wonderful view of this picturesque city, whose skyline stretches between numerous mosques, minarets mixed with churches, houses, and Turkish baths.
After the visit to the castle, we will continue to the heart of the city, entering the Sinan Pasha Mosque, the largest and most visited mosque in the city. Sinan Pasha Mosque was built in 1615 by Sofi Sinan Pasha, a politician in the Ottoman administration, with river stones and the remains of the previous Church of Sant'Arcangelo. Today the building has been restored and it is considered to be one of the largest religious and cultural monuments in the city. Leaving the mosque, your guide will take you to visit the League of Prizren, a historic building from the 1800s that became famous for being the seat of the league with the same name, built to defend the rights of the Albanian nation. Today, there you can find the Ethnographic Museum, which exposes collected pieces at the time of the Ottoman invasion.
Our guided tour of Prizren Kosovo ends with a visit to St. Ljeviš Cathedral. You will only be able to see the exterior of this building since it has been closed for renovation after the serious damage received in 2004. This 14th-century church is a unique building that holds its sad history and you will be able to see its amazing architectural style it. At lunchtime, you will have enough free time to enjoy your meal in Prizren or go shopping in the traditional shops and souvenir kiosks. Then, it’s time to get head back to Tirana.
