Kosovo Caves are near the beautiful village of Gadimje just 15 Kms South of Pristina, the capital city of Kosovo. Look out for the blue motorway sign for Gadimje, 10 Kms along the route from Pristina to Skopje. (Route Hawk if you are from KFOR or EULEX!).
Follow the road for 2 kms to the village of Gadimje and park in the coffee shop car park beside the small town bridge. Buy your tickets in the coffee shop. A personal guided tour of these wonderful and spectacular caves from the owner or one of his family takes just 45 minutes and costs just Euro 2.50 per person. The caves are a constant 16 Degrees Celcius so warm clothing is not essential. It is reccomended however that you wear appropriate footwear as there are some large puddles of water throughout the caves (Don’t wear your Gucci or Manolo Blanak shoes !).
Kosovo Caves After your tour, relax in the coffee shop and river side terrace with views of the surrounding mountains.
Like many places in Kosovo, this is very much a work in progress! Plans for future development in the area include a complete tidy up / make over / beautification of that section of their village. At the moment they have prepared over 1,300 meters of cave walks for visitors. Another 5,000 meters have been charted and await development and safety works. There is apparently, an underground lake the size of a football field which they hope to open in a year or so!
This could quickly become Kosovo’s most important tourism resource if it receives the right support.
