If you cant find better way to travel, come to Belgrade by plane and than take the bus from there to Pristina, Kosovo. There are 2 departures every day, one at 21.30 and other at 22.00, the price is 15 and 10 EUR one way.

hope you'll be able to plan your trip as you imagined, and i hope this helps a bit.
Greetings from Belgrade!
I want to thank you all for responding with your honest feelings, but I must say they seem a bit one-sided. I understand that this is still a current issue that affects many people emotionally.
It is my understanding that while Kosovo(a) isn't currently enjoying an autonomous status, there is controversy about the way in which it is spelled. I personally use "Kosova" because the majority of residents are Kosovar-Albanian, and it is what they prefer.
I hope you have a great trip. Having friends there does make a big difference! I visited Albania back in 97 (?) when there was still some unrest there (probably not dissimilar to Kosovo now), but I was with people I knew and had a guard with me when I left the house, etc.. It was an amazing experience, although I was kind of half-relieved to have left after 10 days. The people I met were some of the most fantastic people I've ever come across and the scenery in Albania is simply stunning. Definitely no regrets. I imagine Kosovo is similarly beautiful.
Let us know how the trip went if you get a chance
It doesn’t affects on us emotionally; it’s a matter of life and death for thousands of no Albanian people on Kosovo and Metohija (not only Serbian people).
If you go to Kosovo and Metohija, I hope you will go to destroyed Christian churches and monasteries and ghettos in which Serbian people live (as a prisoners in their own homes and country) and see and remember everything.
Kosovo (in Serbian it means blackbird) and Metohija (a property of monastery) is correct in Serbian language (and most used in English as Kosovo and Metohija is part of Serbia), Albanians call it Kosova, I don’t know what does it means.
I can also say that Albanians from Albania are very nice, I also have friend from there.
Again, wellcome to Serbia, I hope you will enjoy here.
