4-shi Prishtina – Prishtina's unofficial tour bus

relaxing
Relaxing

One of my favorite things to do once a week is simply staring out of the window of this bus to enjoy these views from a sort of a “zoomed-out” perspective.

Being a small city, Prishtina has no tour buses, but it does have a certain city bus which takes you to all of the city's hotspots. That is precisely bus number 4. It runs in the line from Mati Neighbourhood to Gërmia National Park and vice versa. Through this pathway, you can see the Newborn Monument – the representation of Kosovo’s Independence Day, the Old Neighbourhood filled with gold jewellery stores, the Clock Tower, the Stone Mosque, the King’s Mosque, Heroinat Memorial, Ulpiana Neighbourhood, Taukbahçe Park, and you pass close to the Bill Clinton Statue, Ibrahim Rugova’s Grave, the Mother Teresa Cathedral, and even B Street, the most famous graffiti art street in Prishtina.

One of my favourite things to do once a week is taking a seat on this bus, simply staring out of the window to enjoy these views and see the Prishtina lifestyle from a sort of “zoomed-out” perspective. I always notice something new; a cafe, old people drinking tea and gossiping, colourful clothes hung out to dry, children playing creative games, gorgeous murals, and while these are all very mundane things, in those moments, they become magical.

A quick disclaimer though: bus number 4 is the one most frequently used, so you really do not want to hop on it during rush hour – unless you don’t mind being stuck in a crowd and in traffic!
