Kosovo Lights Up for New Year’s Eve

Three main squares in the Kosovo capital, Pristina, have been decorated for Christmas and New Year celebrations. Lights are hanging in Skanderbeg and Mother Teresa Squares, ending at Zahiri Pajaziti Square, which is where a Christmas, or so-called End of Year, Market is being held. 

Although most people in Kosovo are Muslims, sales of hot wine at the Christmas Market have become a favourite evening tipple for young people in the capital. The market is becoming a tradition in Pristina where local businesses sell their products at lower prices. The 24 wooden huts went up in  Zahir Pajaziti Square in November and the market will be open until mid-January. The Mayor of Pristina, Shpend Ahmeti, has stated that next year the city will offer more space for the market as so many businesses are interested in being part of it.
