Prizren

The city of Prizren is easily one of my favorites in the world! There is so much history and culture among it’s streets. Below are photos I have taken while roaming through it’s many alleyways.

Kalaja 

The Kalaja of Prizren is a medieval fortress that is located on top of a mountain overlooking the city. It is my favorite spot in all of Prizren! The view of the city from the top is utterly breathtaking. In order to get to the Kalaja, you have to hike. There are two hiking trails that you can take. The first is near the center of the city and paved. This route should only taking you 30 minutes. The second route is for the hikers and takes up to two hours. I prefer this one because you also get beautiful views of the mountains and forests on your way up to the top.

Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

Roaming The Streets

One of the things I love about Prizren is that at every turn there is a new thing to see that you simply can’t stop snapping pics!

Prizren at Night

When the light goes down, the people go out. The streets of Prizren get covered with people going out for an evening stroll. And there is no discriminating here, everyone goes out: families, couples, youth. Even all the street cats and dogs!

Do you see all the people on the other side of the river? THAT’S how crowded evenings get… with everyone enjoying the night.

And finally… Grandma’s House

Why not show you a little glimpse of the home I stayed at for three months?
