Remnants of Ottoman Influence in Prishtina

We spent the afternoon walking around the historic neighborhood we would be calling "home" for the next two months. The neighborhood is also known as the Bazaar Area with distinct remnants of Ottoman influence, familiarizing ourselves with the surrounding areas. According to Lonely Planet: Western Balkans, the Bazaar Area is "reminiscent of a Turkish Bazaar, the area is home to some of Pristina's key attractions" which includes the Kosovo Museum, a clock tower, and three mosques. Right outside our doorsteps were: two grocery stores, a phone store, two schools, pharmacy, two €1 stores (just like our dollar stores), and a ton of qebaptores, cafes, and pastry shops.
