Kosovo - Amerikosovo

Kosovo is a partially recognized state, another small piece of the once large country Yugoslavia. Of all the modern countries of the Balkan Peninsula, it was the most terrible to come here for several reasons: the citizens of Kosovo are among the poorest in Europe, and they remember the war, where not so long ago Russia and America found out their relations on its territory, and Russia was on the side Serbs.

Entry into Kosovo has several features. First, it is necessary to have an open Schengen visa, and an open one in advance. If you have never been to a Schengen visa before, you will not be allowed here. Secondly, it is necessary to purchase insurance for traveling by car, the green card is not valid here. Insurance for a minimum period of a week cost 15 euros. I have read more than once that Kosovars, because of recent military events, do not like Russians, so I immediately noticed at the border that the border guards were surprised when they saw a car with Russian numbers, but everything went quickly and safely. 114 states officially recognized Kosovo, but Russia is still not there.

The main road from the border to the capital of Kosovo - Pristina was on a global reconstruction, from a simple two-lane road winding between the mountains, make a real direct highway. The amount of investment is huge, of course, the country has no such money, most likely it was not without America. The navigator did not give anything efficient, and it was necessary to make a big detour through the mountain villages. Seeing that we could not understand where and how to go, the local Kosovar stopped in front of us and gestured to go after him. To say that we were in suspense this time - to say nothing, because to go through the mountain villages and auls in this country, where they had recently killed and killed each other, and Russia took an active part in this - that is still an attraction of luck.

But as you already guessed, since I am writing these lines, everything turned out well, and after a long loop through the most beautiful places we were taken to the main road, where we could continue on to Pristina.

And the hatred of the Serbs show these photos. Once the signs were in two languages: Albanian and Serbian.

For so many years, the hatred of the Serbs has not faded away. Locals painted over all the words that were in Serbian. Perhaps, these are all traces of the war that we saw, there are no destroyed buildings on the road, everything was rebuilt long ago, military equipment was removed.

Pristina is a very small town and not very interesting for tourists, there are no significant sights here, and a couple of hours is enough for a walk. Therefore, I wanted to see the city and leave before dark, not staying at all kinds of nights, because it was creepy. Leaving the car just outside did not dare, we found a paid parking near the city center. Prices are all in euros, although the country is not in the European Union.

One of the symbols of Kosovo is the Rebirth monument. The monument, opened in 2008, is a symbol of Kosovo’s independence and was set up to celebrate the first anniversary of Kosovo’s independence. Periodically letters repaint.

In Pristina, the center is a pedestrian street - Boulevard Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa was born in an Albanian family in Macedonia, and she was raised in the Catholic tradition. By modern Kosovo, Mother Teresa has nothing to do. Many states that do not have their own history begin to invent and assign to themselves other national heroes who do not concern them at all. Kosovo is no exception, it looks very funny.

Before the trip they were frightened that it was better to talk more quietly or even to be silent, otherwise the locals could aggressively respond to the Russian language. While hanging out with friends, they talked quietly, while no one even looked askance at us.

One of the main attractions of Pristina is the Monument to Bill Clinton, which stands on the eponymous boulevard. Bronze Clinton, holding up his left hand in a greeting gesture, squeezing documents into his right with the start date of the NATO military operation against Yugoslavia - March 24, 1999. Clinton even spoke at the opening ceremony of the monument in the presence of thousands of Kosovo Albanians. Then he said: "I never thought that somewhere on the planet someone would erect such a large statue in my honor." The monument is really big, 3.5 meters high, but it looks caricatured.

Kosovo’s border with Albania has only one checkpoint, so we were very surprised when we only had to show documents and stamp. After visiting Kosovo, I understand that we have a lot of patterns about this country, maybe we were lucky, but we didn’t face any negative and danger.
