The Kalaja fortress is located high above Prizren, Kosovo. Under its protection the city became an important trade city connecting Albania and its coasts with the Kosovo Polje. The medieval fortress was built in the 6th century CE on a place that was already used by earlier generations of the Illyrians and Romans. The terrace 200 meters above the city gives great views on the area.

Today you can only have a long walk steadily up the hill to reach this important sight. It is currently repaired with the help of the United States of America and the installation of a chairlift is planned.
