Kosovo among 41 places to go- New York Times

 The New York Times has recently ranked Kosovo among the 41 Places to Go in 2011, as part of a worldwide ranking of tourism destinations. In its annual travel advisory, Kosovo was listed number 36 for “rugged mountains, medieval architecture and unexpected nightlife.”

According to The New York Times, in Kosovo “[t]ravelers will be greeted by rugged mountains and pine forests. They’ll also find that Europe’s youngest nation boasts the Continent’s youngest population, with about half of the people under 25. That statistic comes to life in Pristina, the capital. Thanks in part to the return of enterprising young Kosovars living abroad, the city is filling with cafes, nightclubs and restaurants.”
