The hotel Gračanica was a project between three friends. For several years they had been looking for an appropriate property situated in the quiet countryside close to Pristina – and with a lovely view. They found a suitable location only 500 meters from the centre of the village Gračanica with its UNESCO World Heritage-listed monastery. The hotel building combines modern architecture with traditional elements. Outside as well as inside the combination of white areas and wood creates a bright and friendly atmosphere. In its construction and interior design emphasis was placed on the use of environmentally friendly and durable materials.
