Gjakova, in western Kosovo
The reconstructed Çarshia e Madhe, Gjakova's old bazaar. The original wooden markets were destroyed by fire during 1999 as the entire city was targeted by the Serbian military and paramilitary as an Albanian stronghold. As much as 90 million Euros worth of property was destroyed in the fire. The restoration is impressive, but unfortunately very few of the traditional crafts are still undertaken here.
