General information about Kosovo

Geographic positon of Kosovo

Kosovo is located in the central Balkan Peninsula.  Entirely surrounded by high mountains its terrain is varied, ranging from high plains some 500 metres above sea level to hills and mountains. The country covers 10,908km2, while Pristina covers 572km2 and it is found 535 - 580 metres above sea level. Kosovo is bordered by four countries, namely Montenegro to the northwest, Serbia to the north and northeast, Macedonia to the south and Albania to the west and southwest

Kosovo Climate

Climate and temperatures in Kosovo are variable during the four seasons of the year. Winter is with snow and low temperatures, and in Prishtina, Kosovo's Capital, the average temperature goes down to - 2°C. Spring and autumn are cool and with seasonal rainfalls, whereas summer is hot and dry (rainless), with an average temperature of +22°C. In Kosovo, average high temperatures during the year range between +25°C and +38°C.

People of Kosovo

The population of Kosovo amounts to about  1,836,529 according to 2012 estimate and it comprises Albanians in a majority of 92% and other (Serb, Bosniak, Gorani, Roma, Turk, Ashkali, Egyptian) 8% (2008)

Language of Kosovo

The most common language of Kosovo is Albanian, the first language of 88 – 92% of the population. The native dialect of the Kosovar Albanian population is Gheg Albanian, although Standard Albanian is now widely used as an official language. Serbian is the next most common, spoken as a first language by 5–7% of the population.

Kosovo Economy

Over the past few years Kosovo's economy has shown significant progress in transitioning to a market-based system and maintaining macroeconomic stability, but it is still highly dependent on the international community and the diaspora for financial and technical assistance. Remittances from the diaspora - located mainly in Germany, Switzerland, and the Nordic countries - are estimated to account for about 10% of GDP, and donor-financed activities and aid for approximately 7.5%. Until 2011, Kosovo maintained a budget surplus as a result of efficient value added tax (VAT) collection at the borders and inefficient budget execution; in 2011 expenditures climbed sharply. Kosovo's small size and relatively small trade sector has helped to protect it from the worst of the global financial crisis.
