Džamija cara, Pristina

4.0
#5 of 10 in Historic Sites in Kosovo
The biggest mosque in Pristina, Džamija cara, is distinguished by its 15 m (98 ft) dome and lavish arabesques on interior walls and ceilings. Built between 1460 and 1461 by orders of Sultan Mehmet the Second, the mosque was the most prominent one in the region at its time, with the largest dome at the top. Its minaret stands above the surrounding buildings. The gardens provide a calm retreat to the locals and tourists alike. Inside the mosque, see well-preserved colorful floral ornaments and a mix of minimalistic and Islamic decorative elements.

    One of the architecture that was built during the Ottoman Period. You can see many others from the same period.  more »

    Nice site with the interior being dominated by the vaulted ceiling in shades of blue. The outer space is shame not to be more careful

Where to stay in Pristina

Most accommodations in Pristina lie within its compact center, enabling easy access to the young capital's attractions and vibrant cafe culture. Although the city receives few vacationers, there is a relatively large number of luxury hotels, including four- and five-star establishments. These mainly cater to business travelers, particularly from international governmental organizations, but provide comfort for any guest. If traveling on a budget, consider one of the wallet-friendly hostels; you'll find both dorm-style and private rooms.
