Along with its big sister Plav, 10km away, Gusinje (Гусиње; pronounced ‘gu-si-nye’) is the main gateway to the Prokletije National Park. It's a tidy, laid-back place with an idyllic setting, surrounded by verdant farmland and hemmed in by the rugged majesty of the Prokletije Mountains. You could easily lose a day exploring the back roads and villages by bicycle or car.
While the 1700-strong community is overwhelmingly Muslim, the town’s two mosques coexist comfortably with both an Orthodox and a Catholic church. The most architecturally impressive is the 1626 Vizier's Mosque, a stone structure with a wooden porch and minaret similar to – but better preserved than – the mosques in Plav.
In the centre of Gusinje you’ll find a post office, an ATM, cafes and plenty of options for pizza or burek (meat or cheese pastry).
