This morning meet your guide and driver at the hotel for a private exploration of the town of Pristina and Gazimestan.
Gazimestan is supposedly the site of the Battle of Kosovo which took place in 1389, when Sultan Murat I was killed by a Kosovar Milosh Kopiliqi. Gazimestan is the name of a monument to the battle, situated on a hill rising some 50 meters above the plain. It was built in 1953 under the authority of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. You will visit the Sultan Murat Mausoleum and his Tomb in vicinity. Murat I (nick-named Hüdâvendigâr, "the God-liked one") died in the Battle of Kosovo (1389) and his remains were taken to Bursa and buried in his tomb. But his son Bayezid I still made another tomb in Kosovo in the name of his father. The monument is known as the most ancient Ottoman work in Kosovo, since it was built in the 14th century. It is also the first symbol of the Turkish and Islam in the Kosovo territory.
After some time for lunch, you will return to Pristina for a brief walking tour. You will visit to the Central Museum and the Grand Mosque erected in the 16th century. Your guide will also show you other fascinating sites: the Monument of Skenderbeg (Albanian National Hero that has fought against the Ottomans for 25 years), Government and Parliament Buildings, National Theatre etc. You may wish to stop for coffee at one of local cafeterias, such as Rings Bistro Centre in the city centre. You will continue walking along Mother Theresa Avenue, visiting the National Library and University Center, visit to Old Eminxhiku House and the House of Kosovo Academy.
