Gjakova might be the most authentic town of Kosovo. The old town of Gjakova was one of the most developed trade centers during the rule of the Ottoman Empire in Balkans. Although the old town was ruined in the Kosovo war of 1999, the streets are restored to their traditional style. You can walk for a while along the several small wooden shops. The central square of the Gjakova old town (Çarshia e Madhe) is a true enrichment of the Kosovar culture.
