Kosovo Museum, Pristina

2.3
#2 of 7 in Museums in Kosovo
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. To visit Kosovo Museum and other attractions in Pristina, use our Pristina journey planner.

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.
