Prizren is very well known for its culture, history, and I am so proud to call it my hometown! Another great thing about Prizren is the fact that this city is surrounded by mountains. Starting from the Sharr Mountains in the east and south, Koritnik, Pashtrik, in the south and west, and Kabash mountains in the north. This makes Prizren a great destination for everyone to visit, and hike. Another special thing you will occur there is Via Ferrata Prizren. Beautiful colors in each season, great views, and an amazing escape from the noise and turbulence.
