Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting the historic Prizren stone bridge in Prizren, Kosovo, often hailed as the cultural capital of the country. Situated just a short walk away from the venue of DebConf 22, the bridge is a mere 1.5 km stroll through the charming streets of Prizren.

As the sun began to set around 20:30 hours (local time follows Central European Time), my friends and I, fellow attendees of DebConf 22, reached the bridge. Nestled in the heart of the city, the bridge offered enchanting views of the Lumbardhi river meandering below, embraced by the majestic mountains that encircle the area. It was a truly picturesque sight, beckoning visitors to immerse themselves in the beauty of Kosovo.

From the bridge, we caught sight of the magnificent Sinan Pasha Mosque, showcasing Prizren’s rich Ottoman architectural heritage. Close by, a vendor was selling roasted corn for €1 per cob. While the corn was delicious and tender, it didn’t quite meet the anticipated abundance of kernels.

Before leaving, I stumbled upon a charming souvenir in the shape of the Prizren stone bridge, a perfect memento to cherish the memories of this enchanting visit. Overall, the Prizren stone bridge and its surroundings left a lasting impression, inviting all travelers to explore the cultural richness and natural beauty that Kosovo has to offer.
