Pristina is a city in the Republic of Serbia; it is the capital and largest city of the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija, which belongs to the Kosovo Administrative District. However, the city is not under the rule of Serbia, but is the capital and the seat of the government of the internationally unrecognized Republic of Kosovo. Knowing this, it is advisable not to comment on local politics, as you can get into trouble even if you discuss it in English. To stay safe, it's better to not talk about politics at all! The topic is still sensitive, as Kosovo has been recognized by some countries but not recognized by others. After the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, many Serbs moved out from Pristina.

The most interesting things to see in Pristina are the Catholic Church of St. Mary, built in the fourteenth century; the remains of the settlement Ulpijane, a Roman and early Byzantine city in the province of Upper Moesia; the monument of the Kosovo heroes in the battle in the fourteenth century at Gazimestan; the National Theater; Mother Teresa Boulevard; the White Building; and the Tash Mosque. Pristina is an interesting place to see and the prices are quite low.

You have enough hostels in Pristina from which to choose your accommodation. Most hostels in Pristina are newly opened and they have quite good conditions. The best news for the visitors is that all Pristina hostels are very cheap regardless of the fact that they have much better conditions than hostels in other capitals. But Kosovo is a relatively inexpensive city, anyway. Moreover, most hostels in Pristina are located quite centrally -- on or around one of the main boulevards (Mother Teresa Boulevard). Generally, no one should have problems finding a good Pristina hostel to stay at any time of the year.
