[Prishtina Trave] – Around Pristina

[Prishtina Travel] – Language in Pristina

The main language you will hear in the street is Albanian.  However, most people from Prishtina, especially the youth speaks at least a little English so speaking English, you can get by. Navigating around the city is easy and people are generally receptive to efforts to communicate in broken Albanian and English.  It’s worth having a stab at Spanish, German or Italian which are spoken by people who pick them up via satellite TV broadcasts, international travellers or both.

[Prishtina Travel] – Crime & Safety in Pristina

The well-being of honoured guests (you) is a major source of concern and pride for the locals, and rather than being mugged, you’re more likely to be overwhelmed with hospitality. Despite the locals’ friendly attitude, it’s important to stay alert for petty crime such as bag-snatching and hotel room or house burglaries. Lock up your valuables in the safe or leave them at home, and don’t wander around unlit alleys at night. Pedestrians should be aware of holes in or bits of metal sticking out of the pavement, missing sewer lids and surprisingly deep puddlers.
