Kosovo's Rugova Traditional Games

Published 5 August 2013

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)
