Prizren, Kosovo

Kosovo’s most charming town is pretty little Prizren, nestled in the valley of the River Bistrica and dominated by the minarets and church towers of its old town. Despite the dark legacy of war, Prizren today is a forward-looking place, with one of Eastern Europe’s best film festivals, Dokufest, bringing a splash of international sophistication every summer. The rest of the year you can explore the town’s rich heritage in the form of its hilltop fortress, grand mosques and ancient churches.
