    Red Cross of Kosovo

    When we wandered around the streets of Prizren we recognised many cross country vehicles of all sorts of international organisations, such as the OSCE or the Red Cross.

    These are all stationed in the area to support the country and the local people to manage their daily life peacefully.

    Of course we also saw several vehicles and persons of the KFOR (Kosovo Force), which are NATO led peacekeeping troops from several countries.

    Birra Peja

    Kosovo's most popular local beer is Birra Peja, which is brewed in Peja, a city in north-western Kosovo.

    The brewery was established in 1968 and brews beer since 1971.

    The brewery produces a Pilsner style beer and since 2010 also imports beer of the Slovenian Union brewery.

    Local currency: Euro

    10 Euro note

    I found it quite an interesting fact to know that Kosovo is still not a fully recognised indpendent state and neither a member of the European Union nor a member of the so called Eurozone, but that they have adopted the Euro as official currency.

    In some northern regions of Kosovo the Serbian Dinar is the predominant currency.

    Of course Kosovo does not have issuing right for the Euro, therefore they don't have their own coins with a distinctive national design.
