Kosovo Kids Edition Report

The new Kosovo report includes detailed information on the history, culture, language, food, and daily life of this country.

Here are some fascinating Did You Knows about Kosovo:

  • Kosovo declared independence from Serbia on 17 February 2008, making it one of the newest countries of the 21st century.
  • Cheese byrek is the national food of Kosovo. It is a baked pastry made of thin layers of dough filled with salty cheese, meat, potatoes, and other vegetables.
  • Kosovo’s national anthem has no lyrics. The government decided not to include any lyrics so as not to offend any of its ethnic minorities.
  • The name Kosovo means “field of blackbirds” in Serbian.

Find out about the traditional cuisine, discover what weddings are like in Kosovo, and read about New Year’s Eve celebrations all in this colorful new report.
