Currency Conversion


Pristina (or Prishtina) is not a pretty city, it’s neglected in more ways than one. It’s has a run down feel to it and nobody travels here. This is a good thing. The lack of visitors means it’s cheap as chips and the locals are super friendly. However, at the time of writing, the government were cracking down on drinking establishments left, right and centre for “tax reasons”.  As a result, the night-life situation is constantly changing.

The Girls

Shkurte Ajeti

Understand, over 90% of Kosovars are ethnically Albanian. Brunettes rule the roost, but you can find more green/blue eyes and blondes here than in Albania. The standard is pretty good, with the odd  mesmerizing stunner. Overall, they have decent figures and a good balance of soft facial features with solid bone structure. If you want to score here, there are some thing you need to know. Firstly, they are also really keen to fraternize with foreign men, but at the same time they worry about being “the talk of the village” if they hook up, so discretion and isolation is appreciated.  Secondly, and most importantly, if you are serious about pulling you need to use day game. The night-life is heavily male orientated and many venues are 90% cock. All the beautiful women you see during the day seem to vanish into the ether. During the day, put yourself out there and get chatting. Newborn shopping centre is a good place to start. As soon as you start speaking English you will get IOIs. Number close. The rest is up to you, be a man.

Nightlife Recommendations

Much of the night life is restricted to the weekends. At the time of writing, popular venues Soul and Depot were closed for tax reasons. Avoid ‘First club’, it’s awful. The following two places were shown to us by some local girls who knew the scene.


A wee bit high brow, but one can’t deny this cuban-themed place has a buzz about it. A good crowd can be found hanging out around on a Saturday, well worth a look. Great place to run game. It closes at 1.

Maroon Pub

This is probably the best after hours spot in the city. It resembles a giant house party and the sex ratio is actually pretty decent. The reason for this is its strict face control. Look sharp and try to have a girl on your arm. Once you’re in, it’s pretty conductive for approaching and picking up.

Getting High

Legislation: Possession of the herb and smoking it is illegal, but you will find they are pretty tolerant to its use.

Law enforcement: Police are rather ignorant on this issue, they classify marijuana as just another “DRUG”, if you’re obvious they will stop you and give you a hard time.

Where to buy marijuana: Theres several dealers in Prishtina, you won’t find them on the streets, the good ones are pretty organized and you will need a local contact to help you attain the stuff. Don’t hesitate to talk to younger people in English, you will find them pretty friendly and willing to help. If you don’t know any locals, try the internet cafe owners, bartenders, and younger taxi drivers.


Marijuana prices: Prices can range from 3 euros to 20 euros per gram, depending on dealer and quality.

My Pristina Experience

I’ve been here twice, the first time I was with a girl, the second time was a Saturday night dressed as a Mexican Pirate with my crew. I kissed two girls, but didn’t have time to for a second meet-up. If I had known the night life was such an utter sausage fest, I would have run day game. During the day, the women give you a healthy amount of attention, much more so than in neighbouring countries. My love for Macedonia will surely see me dipping into this country again, the people are great!

    Guys, good job with the blog. I really like it and whenever i need to travel i read your posts related to the specific places I want to travel. I am from Prishtina and the reason I am writing is to clarify a thing and in a way help you. I saw that you mention a cuban themed place ( the only one in Prishtina) named Castros. I think the name of the bar is “The Cuban” and i thought you might want to correct that. Anyways sorry for writing this long.

    Keep up the good work.

      Hey Goerge are you retarded or something? Or you are a Serbian loser? There are greater chances you will be mugged in Belgrade than in Prishtina. Now, do us a favor, go choke yourself.

        Fuck you Shiptar

    George- You don’t need to say you are a Serb. You hate speaks itself. Yes, girls in Pristina are far beautiful than in Belgrade. It is hard for you to know it-but it is true. Second-poverty is in south Serbia and criminal in the heart of Belgrade. Instead of spreading lies and hate-look at your own yard and clean it.

    Pristina night life? You must be kidding me, that city is so filthy that you can’t clean yourself after one night and not even speaking about staying few nights there. You could get robed, raped, probably someone would take your kidney if you get to drunk in some of not so many pubs. Thank God you guys are alive since you wrote this blog…

      Servs are considered animals by Albanians and if a serv would be caught in an Albanian night club, he would be beaten to death and skinned alive.

      Albanians are disgusted by servians, because you are a bunch of criminals and prostitutes.

      I know for sure Albanians are disgusted by servs,because Kosovo is also full of servian prostitutes infected with ghonorrea.

      Disgusting creatures you are

    how about hooking up with women if you’re of african origin? Do kosovo women discriminate against black guys?

    • SqiptarProud to be April 4, 2016 at 2:39 am #

      Hi Robert first reaction may be a kind of cold, toward black guys, I would not say bcs of racism or anything like that but their are not used to see black guys in those arias, you shoud not be afraid just keep it with a smile and let them come. Ofering a glass can be apriciated there

    Albanian kosovar girls have the best bodies in Europe, long legs, average to big breasts, big hips and big asses.

    Hi Folks,

    2017 late summer update.

    I am a British guy in pristina. It’s a small place but the people are nice and the vibe is relaxed. It’s cheap for westerners – a coffee can be had on the main drag for 1.2 euros. Beers in the better bars seem like about 2 euro. They like foreigners here (for obvious reasons) e.g british, germans americans ect.

    The girls are very attractive and take pride in their appearance. Indeed there are a lot walking about in the day but not many at night.

    As with all Balkan countries nightgame is harder as people go out in groups and stand around a table that they have reserved with their(mixed group of) friends – this is something of a natural cock block but is the norm across this region.

    It’s a small place and I am unsure how daytime approaches would go – I think indirect would be ok but direct krauser style on the main drag I can’t see it but helll I am not very good so who knows.

    I went to cuban bar last night; there was a salsa night on, very hot women. In fact all the girls are nice here – a step up from macedonia (which was still pretty good compared to the hell of the UK).

    Any questions let me know
