Gjakova is a city in Kosovo.
THere are insufficient funds to reconstruct the postwar damaged cultural inheritage. Most of the old Architecture has been destroyed from the Serb aRMY during the war.
Since the city is not that big, best way to get to see it is by walking ! Make sure you talk to the locals, especially the young ones , since theyre more proficient in english. And you will hear a story about every corner of the city. Talking about the past is a very actual subject , but people avoid it since many families there have lost at least 1 dear member. This is a life experience, it will change you forever..enjoy!
One of the best places to go is Hard Rock Caffe - Gjakova, cheap prises and good music. Also well-known local band called "NA" plays live every Wednesday night. So don't miss it !!!
Theres also a Restaurant on a hill overlooking the city called Chabrati....just take a cab and within 10 min ull be there enjoying a wonderful view of the city. Food there is EXCELLENT and CHEAP. U can get 300gr steak for only 6 euros and beers for only 1 EUR....deff cheaper than in Prague!...at least in KOsovo u dont have to exchange your money since the only used currency there is Euro.
Peja Beer is a MUST. Cocktails are bit hard to find. Long drinks cost not more than 2 or 3 euros. Tipping is not mandatory but probably highly appreciated!
hotel Jakova and Hotel Pashtriku. Prices range from 25 to 70 euros. Not posh but good enough for an average tourist. Taxis are quite cheap, you can get around the city for 2 or 3 euros tops. There are plenty or Cafes and Bars in Charshia e Vogel (downtown) where you can go and have a Peja beer, relax and eventually meet some chicks or guys which would be excited to meet someone new in town. Be aware that 70 % of the city has been destroyed and people there struggle to lead a dignious life, so, showing off is probably smth that you want to aviod. And security is at its highest level, ur probably more secure there than in London, lol, you can walk at anytime at night in the city and not be worried about anything! Have fun and enjoy!
IT is best night lifein Kosova for yung peaple during somer time bar`s open till late no ages restriction,life music ,friendly,vary good service.
