Kosovo Day trip from Skopje

2 reviews
The driver/guide will pick you up from the hotel or any location of your preference in Skopje. This full day tour will start with a visit to a beautiful medieval monastery in Grachanica (90 km, approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes from Skopje), rebuilt in 1321 on the foundations of an Orthodox church from the 6th century. Then, we drive to Kosovo’s capital Prishtina (20 minutes from Grachanica). We will be able to visit the 26m high clock tower and the National Library. In the Independent House of Kosovo we will find out the story of the former president Ibrahim Rugova in the campaign for independence from Serbia, and see the Newborn Monument from 2008, when Kosovo declared its independence. Sultan Mehmet Fatih Mosque and Jashar Pasha Mosque are two beautiful Ottoman mosques and famous local attractions. Somewhere on the way, we will have lunch. In the end, we drive back to Skopje and will drop you off in any location of your preference in Skopje.

Like most of the other reviewers, I didn't know how much Bill Clinton had done for Kosovo, nor that they were understandably so thankful to him. We wandered down to the statue (it's a few minutes walk from the Mother Theresa Cathedral - you'll see the Bill Klinton (note the spelling) road sign, then head down and the statue on the left hand side of the road. If you're coming from the other direction from the outskirts of the city, then it's much easier to see thanks to the massive poster of him! It's a small monument on the corner of two streets, but nice all the same and worth a quick visit.

“I will always be proud of the fact that I happened to be the president of the United States when you needed someone to stand up and say no more ethnic cleansing, no more people running out of their homes, no more killing innocent civilians, there’s got to be another way,” - Bill Clinton When most of the world was in denial over the genocide that Serbia was committing on European soil, Clinton took the necessary measures to stop it in Kosovo. One of the most significant events which led to victory in the Kosovo revolution and Kosovo becoming the independent sovereign nation it is today. The free people of Kosovo have since honored Clinton with a statue that anchors the corner of the street also named after him, Bill Clinton Boulevard. Standing at the foot of the statue, in the middle of the modern day free nation of Kosovo's capital city Pristina, its a sobering reminder of both the cost of liberty and the duty to secure it regardless for who and where it needs to be done in the world.

I really had no idea the work Clinton did in this Nation country of Kosovo. He definitely is well revered in this city, as so all the Americans who step foot in it. The memorial is really nice, with an American flag next to it, and a plaque. They even have a Hillary Clinton store right next to it...go figure! Lol

USA President Bill Clinton is a national hero in Kosovo. Locals speak highly of him and they should. He has a boulevard named after him and a fantastic statue in his honor. President Clinton was hear in Prishtina in 2009 addressing Kosovars. Kosovars are so friendly and when locals found out President Clinton was my Commander in Chief, they wanted to hear President Clinton stories. Very respectful!

Why on earth Bill Clinton? OK, I had to google it myself and the reason is OK. But still it is weird to see the statue of an american president on an intersection, flags, picture, and all.
