Te Plepat Prishtina – The gateway to the past

The dresses range from extravagant creations with vibrant colors to elegant wedding gowns and some of the shops even showcase traditional wedding pieces.

“Te Plepat” or “By the Poplars” is a very famous street in Prishtina. It is practically the gateway to the old city with it being incredibly close to the Ethnological and National Museums and the green market, and a simple stroll around reveals a lot of the city’s character.

The connection to the old city is not simply geographical, this street itself offers a glimpse into the most popular crafts back in the day: tailoring & jewelry making. The entire street is filled with dress shops and jewelry stores passed from generation to generation, and it is impossible to miss the spark and shine of their glitter and gold. The dresses range from extravagant creations with vibrant colors to elegant wedding gowns and some of the shops even showcase some traditional wedding pieces, which the shopkeepers are more than willing to talk about. On the other hand, the jewelry stores have display windows filled with various shapes and designs of high-quality gold, ready to be picked and worn for generations on end. The price range depends on the product, the weight, and the quality of the gold, but it will most probably be higher than 70 euros.

It is worth a visit even if it’s just to admire these creations without the intention of purchasing, especially if it’s accompanied by a heartfelt conversation with the owners about the history behind the street and their businesses.
