Leopardfish  Country Guide

Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Kosovo is not just for adventure seekers, humanitarians and social advocates. While poorer and a bit less safe than it’s neighboring Eastern European neighbors, Kosovo offers a vibrant youthful culture in both Pristina and it’s smaller towns  (replete with trendy restaurants, cafes, and clubs) as well as an extraordinary natural terrain that lends itself to hiking and backpacking exploration. Also, while Kosovans are generally Islamic, they are quite known for their religious moderation and tolerance of other faiths, mirroring more western values than one might expect. While not may locals do not speak English (with the exception of a number of youth), they are generally very helpful. Typically, expats can shop retail and navigate the country quite easily.

Kosovo is cheap by western standards. Indeed, according to Xpatulator.com’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Kosovo is well below the international average. This becomes apparent when purchasing any number of goods and services such as housing accommodations and furnishings, transport, clothing, Internet plans, alcohol, groceries and restaurant meals. A teaching expat at an international school should be able to not only live comfortably but save some money as well.
