To understand Kosovo today, its urbanization trends and forms, it is necessary to know the historical geography of this territory and the state of art of remnants that shape its cultural (urban/rural) and natural landscape. Mapping and interpreting of these places opens the opportunity to understand the transitional nature of Kosovo’s urban reality today, and to inspire the comprehension of its future development within the European context. This will reveal the temporal and spatial consistency of Kosovo’s urban form and its consolidated geography. This logically leads to a brief history of the territory and a better understanding of modern-day Kosovo’s urban and spatial planning and future endeavors in the same context leading at the same time towards the processes of regional interaction or heterogeneity.
