    Iljaz Kuka Mosque
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: Prizren is a city of mosques. I can't remember having seen a town with as many mosques as Prizren.

    The Sinan Pasha Mosque in the historic old town is probably Prizren's most famous mosque. This and some more are listed in the "Things to do" section of my Prizren page.

    Other mosques, which we came across when wandering through the streets of Prizren included the 18th century Terzi Memi Mosque. It can be found in the southern part of the town near the busy street Ismet Jashari Kumanova.

    The Iljaz Kuka Mosque was completed in 1792. It stands near the northern end of the street Iliaz Kuka on the left side of the Lumbardhi River.

    One of the oldest mosques in Kosovo is The Myderiz Ali Efendi Mosque, which was constructed between 1543 and 1581. It is located on the street Papa Gjon Pali, just north of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour.

    Acknowledgements on the City Hall

    Favorite thing: At the time of writing this page (September 2011) more than 80 countries have recognised Kosovo as an independent state, but many other countries are still undecided about this subject.

    Serbia regards Kosovo as a part of their territory. Also the VT database lists Prizren under Serbia and not Kosovo.

    On the wall of Prizren's City Hall, all countries which have recognised Kosovo as an independent state are listed with a greeting in their language.

    The City Hall (Kommuna e Prizrenit) can be found at the busy street Remzi Ademi, on the right bank of the Lumbardhi River.

    Favorite thing: A view out the bus window on the way to Prizren, showing the hair-pin turns and the beautiful landscape. Certainly a time when the trip is as interesting as the destination!
