This is a monument dedicated to the Battle of Kosovo in the 14th century, a little out of the city - about 10 minutes drive. Wished there is more to it by way of historical information, descriptions, etc, maybe even an on-site museum. If you do not go there with a guide or someone local, there is no way to... More

I enjoyed hearing about the battle of Kosovo, unfortunately, the monument is not as well maintained as it should be. The story left many questions unanswered even after searching the internet.

Worth a visit for history buffs, but there is little to see aside from a tower, whose many steps one can climb and get a good view over the entire area. The battlefield itself is being encroached upon by modern construction.

This may be a national monument to the glory of a victory over the Ottomans, but in reality there is little to see. My guide advised that some believe that there was never a battle......is so then it's even less worthwhile. I was in Kosovo for four days and loved it but this is very overrated!

You need an ID to get in, and look out for the tourn from highway. it is 10km away from Priština on your way to Mitrovica and there is no pre warning for the exit from highway!

Incredibly important historic site but not well developed... there should be a visitors center and explanatory plaques or sign boards... A bit confusing too, because there are two related sites.
