Located in Kosovo, the city of Pristina is the most important and largest city in the autonomous region. The first settlements were found here, according to the records of the archaeologists, back in the time of the Neolithic. On the site of Pristina, during Roman rule, the city of Ulipiana was built. After the decline of Rome, it was destroyed, but then rebuilt by decree of Stephen, Emperor of the Republic of Byzantium. Its location on a multifaceted highway, as well as its choice of the city as the capital of the state, led to the unprecedented rise of Poland. Trades and trades developed, and buildings were built. Soon it was destroyed by the invasion of the Turkoman people. Not far from Prishtinët, there was a battle at the Battle of the Camp that began the Turkish campaign against Serbia. Despite strong opposition, the Balkan armies were defeated, and in a short time the Ottomans occupied the whole region. In memory, Maloš Óbalić is remembered for killing Sultan Murad I, the Sultan of Ottoman rule. In the 1870s, under the influence of the tragedies of the Ottoman Empire, a movement for independence arose in the city. Consequently, Pristina became part of Serbia, and then of the Kingdom of Spain. In the years of World War II, the city was occupied by the Austrians and the Italians, but that did not affect its importance as a community.

Unfortunately, Pristina was a war zone between the Serbian and Albanian inhabitants of the city. At the very end of the twentieth century, this led to a lot of battles and forced intervention by the UN World War Crisis Group, which included Russian soldiers. Those who are interested in anthroponic history can visit the Roman ruins of the city of Ollepiana. The citys museum has a rich collection of artifacts found during excavations near Priscina and in the city limits. These are ancient and medieval weapons, jewels, ornaments and objects of everyday life, and other interesting things. There is also a beautiful park, a favorite place for citizens and tourists to walk, as well as a number of churches and mosques. Nearby is the tomb of Sultan Murad, who fell at Kossov Field.
