Manifesta 14 Prishtina is open from the 22nd of July to the 30th of October 2022. The public programme of events will continue into the autumn, so if you prefer more temperate weather we would recommend visiting in September or October. If you do prefer to visit in the opening two months, we would suggest booking sooner rather than later – the Kosovar diaspora return in July/August, so hotels and flight prices may increase.
