Kosovo is known as the country of “young Europeans.” Its citizens are well-educated, multilingual, dynamic and have an abundance of entrepreneurial spirit. Kosovo’s history is both a fascinating and tragic mix of conflict, occupation and emergence as a new country in the complicated political landscape of southeastern Europe. For over a decade it has been the focus of international organizations as it emerges as a member of the community of nations and aspires to EU membership. Kosovo is Europe’s newest democracy. It is a country with a population of approximately two million people, of which 500,000 live in the capital city of Pristina. More than 50% of the population is under the age of 30 and, as a result, the city possesses a vibrant nightlife and youthful culture.
RIT Kosovo is located just outside of downtown Pristina, near the beautiful Germia National Park. The university is walking distance from most housing, restaurants and other popular Pristina locations. Public transportation is also reliable and affordable.
