Kosovo is located in South Eastern Europe and is bordered by Albania, Montenegro, Serbia and Macedonia.

Ten years later, Kosovo has emerged as a land rich in its environmental and cultural heritage. Throughout history this region has remained a crossroads and the political shifts that have affected Kosovo have left many remarkable monuments to be discovered by those who visit.
