KOSOVO | Inside a Country That Doesn’t Officially Exist

View Original Post for complete content...


The little country of Kosovo in the Balkans of southeastern Europe declared independence from Serbia in 2008. But Serbia still claims that Kosovo is part of Serbia, only about 50% of the countries around the world recognize it as an independent nation and the United Nations doesn't officially acknowledge it as independent. Despite its disputed status, it is for all practical purposes a separate country. So what is it really like there? In this video I spend a day in Kosovo traveling from the capital city of Pristina to the smaller town of Peja, go for a hike in the snow in the beautiful Accursed Mountains and visit an old Serbian monastery.
