One of the most popular spots in Prishtina’s Mother Theresa Boulevard is Kafet e rakisë, or The rakija cafes, a tilted lane of lively cafes that goes up in an alley. This is where you can find raki, a local alcoholic drink that is served in many coffee shops along the way. Raki is a strong and clear spirit that is often mixed with water and consumed with snacks. It is a traditional drink that is enjoyed by many people in this area.
The cafes in this lane offer a variety of options for different moods and preferences, which you should explore as there is one for every taste and personality. You can choose from spacious and energetic venues like Taverna Tirona or Ballkan Taverna, cozy and relaxing spots like Pijetore or Charlie Brown, or something in between like Shoki or Baron. Each cafe has its own charm and vibe, but they all contribute to the vibrant atmosphere of this street and you can have a good time at any time of the day. You can have your morning coffee, your afternoon beer, and your evening shots in any order you like – judgment free.
