Lets discover story of recent history of Kosovo
Mitrovica, situated in the North of Kosovo, is the town that was badly affected by the 1999 Kosovo War. Following several ethnic tensions, in 2013, the city is officially divided in Mitrovica South (with Kosovo Albanian Majority) and North (with Kosovo Serbian majority), separated by river Ibri (Ibar), becoming a symbol of Kosovo's ethnic divisions - but yet, an interesting place to visit and see. The city is famous for its mine called Trepça, rich in lead, zinc, silver, gold, crystals etc. , which has historically been one of Kosovo largest industries. It is the only city in Kosovo that has four rivers: Ibri, Sitnica, Lushta and Trepça. Traces of the city dates back to the Neolithic time, as many exhibit archeological exhibit pieces were found in archeological sites. It's a city of rock music, great artists, actors, and sportsmen.

The tour was amazing. I am a graduate student of international relations and thought this was an amazing experience as I had all of my questions answered (and I asked questions the entire 8 hour tour haha). We saw all the important places and I gained a much better understanding and appreciation of Kosovo and the history and struggle it faced to get to where it is today (and what is left to be done). This was an amazing tour and if you are a political junky (or just love the Balkans) you will love it!
