On February 17, 2008 President Hasim Thaçi declared Kosovo independent; Europe’s youngest country was officially recognized by the UN in June of the same year. Although part of the Serbian and Ottoman empires for centuries, Kosovo had at times enjoyed some degree of autonomy and for the past several years has been rediscovering its identity through a resurgence of interest in the arts. Music festivals of all kinds run back-to-back for much of the year and new hotels, restaurants and attractions are springing up all over the capital, Pristina. Many of Kosovo’s main sights are within easy reach from Pristina: the charming 14th-century Gračanica Monastery, Gadime Cave, and the smaller, more picturesque towns of Peja and Prizren.
