Overview

To understand the emotions Kosovo stirs in the Serbs, you have to go back to 1389, to the Battle of Kosovo Polje—the Field of Blackbirds—one of the largest battles ever fought in medieval Europe. Here a Christian alliance tried to block the northward advance of the invading Ottoman Turks.

Visited on the way to Pristina and we were the only people there. View from the top is very good but not a lot in the way of signage to explain the full significance of the monument which is a shame.
