Public Holidays

Public holidays in the Kosovo

The fact that Islam largely dominates Kosovo can be seen from the holidays. The Feast of Sacrifice and the day of the breaking of the fast are the two most important days on the Kosovar calendar. With Good Friday, Easter Sunday and a Christmas Day, even Christians are not left out.

Conspicuous are the days dedicated to the surrounding countries. Here you can see the history of the country, which was part of Serbia until 2008, and whose inhabitants often have their roots in several Balkan states. Especially remarkable is Europe Day, which is celebrated by law. The Kosovars thus demonstrate their affiliation, although Kosovo is (still) hardly a member of any international alliance.
