Political tourism flourishes in Kosovo

One company called Political Tours is trying to attract new clients by mixing travel and politics in Mitrovica.

    Mitrovica is probably not on most people’s list of holiday destinations, but groups are now traveling thousands of kilometres to visit the last divided city in Europe.

    Former journalist Nicholas Wood set up the tour agency after working in the region for over a decade. He says it is the only company of its kind in the world.
