A Day In Europe’s Newest Country: A Photoblog Of Kosovo

Since Scotland’s independence referendum failed and the Catalonian one is unofficial, 6-year-old Kosovo retains the title of ‘Europe’s newest country’ for now. Ok, so only 100 or so sovereign nations recognise it as such, but if Sporcle have included it separately in their countries and capitals of the world games then it definitely counts.

In September, I spent two nights in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, but arrived late the first night so only spent a day exploring it. [Full blog is here.] I took a lot of pictures because, well, I don’t think it has sufficient thrills for me to return. There are some pictures you’ll see time and time again in Kosovo-themed blogs. These are Pristina’s equivalent of tourist sights:
