The rugged wilderness of the Sharr Mountains in the south of Kosovo and the famous powder of Bjeshket e Nemuna in the Albanian Alps, to the west of the country, offer great backcountry skiing conditions. While Kosovo is becoming a popular ski destination, you can still enjoy a unique ski touring experience surrounded by the peace of the mountains, away from crowds.
Kosovo is a landlocked country in the center of the Balkans, in southeastern Europe. It is bordered by Serbia to the north and east, Macedonia to the southeast, Montenegro to the west and Albania to the southwest.
Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, after a long and violent dispute. Although it has been diplomatically recognised by 113 nations, there are still many nations that do not accept Kosovan independence, including Serbia and Russia.
Today Kosovo is a great young destination, full of rewarding experiences for adventurous travellers, and one of the most affordable countries in Europe. Kosovo also boasts many ancient historic towns, with beautiful mosques and churches. Pristine is the vibrant capital, a city of cafes, museums and galleries, but Prizren’s old town is a favourite among visitors!
Kosovo has a continental climate, with cold and snowy wiinters. The western and southeastern mountain ranges have an alpine climate.

Kosovo's currency is the Euro (EUR), although it is not part of the eurozone.
Pristina International Aiport is the only way to reach the country by plane from other countries. Traveling from Pristina to Brezovica, in the Sar Mountains, will take you about an hour and a half.
