Kosovo or Kosova, is a disputed territory and partially recognised state in the Balkans that declared independence from Serbia in February 2008 as the Republic of Kosovo. I took a bus to Kosovo from Macedonia, the Kosovan bus driver was constantly overtaking BMWs and mercedes cars, he also kept playing christmas songs (it was July).



Pristina has a run down feel to it as a result of the war with Serbia. Very few tourists were there. The lack of visitors means it's extremely cheap and the locals are super friendly. More than 90% of the population is ethnically Albanian, hence a predominantly Muslim-majority population.
