Prishtina is the capital city of Kosovo.
The main language you will hear in the street is Albanian. English is widely spoken. Most of people from Kosovo, especially young people, speak at least a little English so you can more than likely get by. Navigating around the city is easy - the city centre is small and walkable.
The easiest way to get to Pristina is by plane. There are direct flights to Pristina International Airport (PRN). There are cheap connecting flights via Tirana and Ljubljana, but also from most of German airports. UAE-based Air Arabia flies twice a week from Sharjah, connecting Pristina to the Middle East.
If you arrive at Pristina airport - small, haphazard but recently modernized and efficient in a Balkan kind of way - you should get from the plane to the outside world within 15 minutes. The city itself is about 25 minutes away by car.
There is a not very frequent shuttle service from the nearby Skopje Airport leaving, have a look for the sabagroup minibus in the parking lot.
From Albania, there are several daily direct bus connections to Pristina, from Tirana and Durres In Tirana the bus office and stop is right behind the Hotel Internation.
There are also direct bus links from most cities in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Turkey, Macedonia, Bosnia, and Montenegro.
City buses are the preferred method of local travel. They run on set routes and cost next to nothing, 40 or 50 cents a trip. It is usual to pay when you get in so try to have some change. The collector will come for the money after you have sat down.
Taxis are readily available but more expensive. Make sure your driver has a meter in his vehicle. No trip around the centre or from the centre to Dragodan / Arberia, Valenia, Sunny Hill, etc. should cost more than 2-3 €. The minimum charge is 1,5€.
What to see
Don't miss the Pristina Ethnographic museum tucked back in the old town streets about 5 minutes walk from the main museum. It's been creatively curated, with video and music, and is housed in two stunning eighteenth and nineteenth century houses, one kept as it would have been lived in, the other with 'the room of birth', 'the room of death', costumes, and beautiful traditional jewellery with enthusiastic guides.
The national museum, in an Austro-Hungarian style building is free
Check out the mosques on Nazim Gafurri Street including Jashar Pasha Mosque
A couple minute's walk from the Grand Hotel Pristina is the library of the University of Pristina. It looks like it is constructed of massive concrete Lego bricks and then covered with chain mail. It is certainly worth a look.
To see the city from street-level is best: you could start in front of the three-storey portrait of Bill Clinton, and stroll past the university to the Grand Hotel. Follow Nena Tereze (Mother Teresa) street towards the Skenderbeg monument and the new Government Building, then point yourself toward the historic mosques and the old quarter and market.
Out of the city, you can refresh and stretch your legs in Gërmia Park. During the summer, the lake-sized swimming pool here is a hot spot for families and young people, but year-round the park itself offers grassy spaces to relax or kick a ball around, and a network of trails through the dense woods perfect for dog-walking or drunken hide-and-seek tournaments.

Nena Tereze Cathedral (Katedralja Nene Tereza), Rruga Justiniani, Prishtinë 10000, Kosovo. Pay 1€ to get to the top of the bell tower and enjoy the panoramic view of the City.

Serbian Orthodox Monastery Gračanica - UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in the eponymous village 17 km south-east from Prishtina.
What to do
If you like coffee, and have a massive amount of time on your hands, Pristina is the city for you. There are cafes absolutely everywhere, and most of them are packed through the warm season with fashionably-dressed young people, dropping a euro a day to keep themselves amused.
Shopping-wise, Pristina is full of good bargains but low on selection. Silver is sold in the old quarter and is a pretty good value; Albanians are known throughout the former Yugoslavia as silversmiths.
Stay out late because the streets are safe and Albanians love foreigners. Also go out to bars and cafes, as they are usually filled but make sure you drink some "Peja" beer (Key word PEJA)
For clubs there are Fullhouse and Duplex in Pristina which are right near the newborn sign. Good for dancing, usually play American hip-hop.
The outdoor bookstalls adjacent to the Grand Hotel are a good place to pick up a copy of the Code of Lekë Dukagjini. Or a map of Pristina that most likely has names for all the streets many have never heard of.
The covered market sells the small, distinctively-shaped enamel 'xhezve' saucepans for boiling coffee. They come in all sizes, from a single cup to an extended family coffee round and make great, unbreakable, cheap (from 1.50 euro) and authentic souvenirs
