“Soma is a really cool place! I prefer to go there during night-time because it gives you a great vibe, but you can go there for brunch or a drink during the day as well. But, if you want to have a good night out (before clubbing), go to Soma and have fun!”

History Museum
“Well, something that tourists do (but I as a local have never done it) is to go and visit our National Museum. I can guide you how to go there, but I have no idea what's inside: what I've heard though, is the ideal place to put yourself in tourists' shoes and immerse in Kosovo's archeology, history, nature, and folklore.”

Café
“Dit' e Nat' (translated to Day 'n' Night) is a really nice place to have a coffee and read something or work on your laptop. You can enjoy vegetarian food in there as well. For more, they have a cat called Lule (meaning: flower), which you can pet and play with her.”

Restaurant
“Tifanny's is by now a Prishtina institution. Meals begin with rounds of fresh oven-baked bread that is crusty on the outside and fluffy on the inside. For a heavier meat experience, the grilled meats platter is a good choice. A sizeable combination of chicken kebabs and pieces of veal, all grilled right in front of your eyes. A dish to order during lunchtime is the veal soup. It is served in a huge old-fashioned tureen, and with chunks of meat, vegetables and rice as it floats in a lightly seasoned broth. It is one of the restaurant’s simplest dishes, and also one of the tastiest (Souce: Prishtina Insight, 2016).”

“The best club in the country. Lookout for the electronic series nights, DJ's such as Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, tiNi, Raresh... You're very lucky if you're in town for the series.”

Museum
“This wonderful annex of the Museum of Kosovo is located in two beautifully preserved Ottoman houses enclosed in a large walled garden. The English-speaking staff will give you a fascinating tour of both properties and point out the various unique pieces of clothing, weaponry, jewellery and household items on display in each. There's no better introduction to Kosovar culture (Source: Lonely Planet, 2017). If you are in the neighbourhood, do pass by the green market. Men and women from surrounding villages travel to the city market everyday to sell their fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products. Absolutely delicious!”

Library
“Easily one of Pristina's most notable buildings, the National Library, completed in 1982 by Croatian Andrija Mutnjakovic, has to be seen to be believed (think gelatinous eggs wearing armour). It's in the centre of a pleasant green area, one of the few things approaching a public park in the centre of Pristina (Source: Lonely Planet, 2017). An absolute must for everyone!”

“National Theater of Kosovo was founded in October, 1946 in Prizren. This was the first professional theatre in Kosovo after World War II. It was firstly named "The Regional Populist Theater" then the "Provincial Populist Theater" until 1999 when it was finally changed to "The National Theater of Kosovo". After a few months after the establishment, the theater was moved to Pristina, the capital city of Kosovo. The theatre is of a national character, as such, it is funded by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of the Republic of Kosovo.”
