Starting at €1,50 (€2 after 22:00) plus €0.60 per kilometre, fares are cheap in Pristina. The jury is out as to the trustworthiness of your average Pristina cabbie - some reports claim every taxi is driven by a direct descendent of Mother Teresa herself, whilst others insist it's all a Serbian conspiracy. Use marked taxis, make sure the meter is running, and if possible call one in advance (the ones listed here are good). It's also a good idea to have your destination written down in Albanian. Our favourite cabbie is Musa (tel. +386 49 85 14 50), a former economics teacher who reads Hegel and Kierkegaard and discusses life philosophy in his battered Merc.
