What to see in Prizren

Prizren's delightful city centre is the best-preserved and most picturesque in Kosovo, with a good collection of religious and profane buildings and quaint residential quarters, all within close range of each other. A brisk walk uphill will take you to the fortress overlooking town. The city's long tradition of religious and ethnic tolerance is apparent in the close proximity of Catholic and Orthodox churches, mosques and tekkes, many of them hundreds of years old. It's still difficult to visit the Orthodox churches and monasteries, but we've indicated what's currently possible. A full day will allow you to see many of the sights reviewed here, though it's recommended to call ahead to check opening times if you're set on visiting a particular museum.
