Enjoy a day trip to Prizren, Kosovo’s historic, second biggest, and arguably its most beautiful city.
There are many churches and monasteries to visit, but one of the most popular is the Macedonian Orthodox Church of Sveti Jovana Kaneo, situated on a rocky outcrop above the town, overlooking the lake.
Past the church you can wander around to the back of town, exploring the old walls and fortress, and admiring the views of the lake.
Alongside Communist-style architecture and beautiful Orthodox churches, construction works frequently uncover Roman remains, so it is perfectly normal to walk past Roman brickwork that has been incorporated into a pedestrian underpass. Meet your leader and group at a welcome meeting at 6pm tonight – check with reception to confirm the time and place.
We'll be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please have these on hand.
This adventure combines the must-sees of the Balkan region and the lesser-known glories of Macedonia and Albania to create the perfect balance between old and new.
Hang out in Dubrovnik's Old Town, cruise around Lake Ohrid and explore boutiques in Tirana.At 34 kilometres long, 14 kilometres wide, and over 300 meters deep, all shared between Albania and Macedonia, there’s plenty of vast Lake Ohrid to explore.The afternoon is free for you to discover the area.On arrival, head out an orientation walk of Prizren, walking alongside the Bistrica river, taking in the cobbled Shadervan square and the Old Stone Bridge, all of which will help you get your bearings of the city.Explore the city’s famous mosques and contrast it with abandoned Serbian Orthodox churches that stand as sombre reminders of the ethnic divisions that still simmer just under the surface.The Sveti Naum Monastery is also a great option, lying on the shores of the lake south of town, with well-kept grounds that are home to peacocks.
