There have been an increasing number of protests in the centre of Pristina, some of which have turned violent. Large protests are expected to take place on Saturday 28 November around Zahir Pajaziti Square in the centre of Pristina. You should take extra care and avoid large crowds or demonstrations.

The Kosovo police and Prime Minister have called on citizens to increase vigilance, to avoid where possible concerts, sporting events, night clubs, bus stations and shopping malls, and to alert the police about any concerns.
