Gračanica (Kosovo)

Gračanica Monastery.

Gračanica is a Serbian community in Kosovo, centered around the Gračanica Monastery and about 10 km from Pristina. Since the end of conflict, this town has functioned as a center for the remaining Serbian community in Kosovo.

Get in

Coming from Pristina, the fastest and simplest way to reach Gračanica is by the road between Albi Mall and Viva Fresh, just off the road to Skopje. Continue on this main road for roughly 6km, and you'll find yourself in Gračanica's city center. A metered radio taxi should charge less than €6 from Albi Mall, or roughly €10 from Pristina's city center.

Follow this same road through the end of town to reach the monastery.

You can also catch the bus to Gjilan leaving every 20 minutes from the main bus station in Pristina. The fare to Gračanica is €0.50 (payable inside the bus) and the trip lasts about 15 minutes.
