TRAVEL DIARY – The young Kosovo

When I travel I share some days travel with other tourists, This time I met Lorenz. We share some beers, experiences and part of the route for Kosovo.

Mitrovica, City without law

Mitrovica, two cities in one. It is divided into two, the northern part of Serbia population, the southern part of Albanian population and middle River that splits it with two bridges. The new bridge is protected by the KFORCE and the old forces, a simple bridge for pedestrians only. The northern Mitrovica Serbs do not accept the laws of Kosovo, What makes them the most hot and controversial in the country.
