Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.  

In the churches and cathedrals women should cover their heads with a scarf or hat, while men should take their hats off.   

Language & Religion 

Today, over 90% of Kosovo's population are from Muslim family backgrounds, most of whom are ethnic Albanians. One thing to note is that Islam was never enforced, but only accepted by the Balkan population. Most of the people who turned to Islam were Albanians.  

Given the crossover of ethnic minorities in this region both Serbian and Albanian are widely spoken in Kosovo.
