Trip Report I Got Tear Gassed In Pristina

Jump to last reply

After weighing all my travel options for the day, I head downstairs to Anja Restaurant for an amazing breakfast which is included in my $23 per night room rate. It is past nine in the morning and that removes one of my options to visit Prizren in Kosovo which although is less than 100km from Skopje is almost impossible to visit on a day trip using the local bus system.

Prizren is a popular tourist destination from Skopje but there are only two morning buses. Although only about 100km away surprisingly it takes about two hours to cover the distance because of the road conditions and border crossing formalities. Another option of a rental car for a total cost of about 50 euros a day plus what I consider the hassle of the border crossing forces Prizren of my list.

With hourly bus service to Pristina the capital of Kosovo, for 320 denars I am headed there on an 11am mini-bus. For me, a big part of visit to Pristina turns out to be a scary heart-racing but cool experience as I witness the largest protest in the city since 1998 and get tear gassed in the process.
