Kosovo Museum, Pristina

2.8
#11 of 19 in Things to do in Pristina
At Kosovo Museum, explore the culture and past of a country that, although newly formed, boasts a long, rich history. Kosovo's national museum serves as the earliest institution of cultural heritage in Kosovo, founded in 1949, and the Austro-Hungarian style building that houses its artifacts dates back to the late 19th century. Rotating exhibits explore different aspects of the nation's history, and there is a permanent gallery dedicated to the Kosovo War of 1998-1999. Limited information is provided in English, but visitors can witness photos, international newspaper stories, and the flags of NATO countries that intervened. Be warned, there are some graphic and potentially disturbing images on display. Arrange to visit Kosovo Museum and other attractions in Pristina using our Pristina trip itinerary maker.

    Don't expect too much as a museum but still can be seen when you go to one of the places you can visit to see.
