Kalaja Fortress, Prizren

4.5
Admire views of Prizren, witness the surrounding mountains, and explore the remains of the erstwhile capital of the Serbian empire at Kalaja Fortress. The fortress is largely in ruins, and much of what remains today is from the Ottoman period. You are free to wander around the site, but be respectful of the attraction's extensive history and mindful of your own safety. Wear sensible shoes for the steep hike up and be sure to bring plenty of water. A deserted Orthodox church makes a good rest stop on your journey. Plan your visit to Kalaja Fortress and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Prizren tour planning website.
