Kosovo's Rugova Traditional Games

During the first weekend in August, Kosovars from far and wide descended on the country's mountainous southwest for the annual Rugova Traditional Games in order to participate in a series of almost forgotten but time-honored sports and customs. Not unlike Scotland's Highland Games, Rugova events usually test the physical skills and strengths of men including wrestling, stone-throwing, tug-of-war, and tree-climbing competitions. (10 PHOTOS)
