Pristina Walks is a multilingual interactive walking app whose architecture was designed to accommodate curated research as video, audio, and text. The app consists of four thematized Walks: From a la Turca to a la Franga; Asphalt for Progress; The long ‘90s and Memoryscapes, which altogether contain eighty-four points of interest supported by one hundred and ten short videos which reveal the city from the perspective of its own citizens.
Each Walk offers immersive discovery and learning experiences that nurture curiosity about cultural heritage, local history, and architecture. Moreover, the Walks encourage walking as a way to create a sense of belonging and a culture of the place.
Aware that the story of Pristina is larger than these four Walks, in line with oral history methodology, the Pristina Walks mobile app will continue to collect life stories in the future. For that and other reasons, every section of the app welcomes users’ contributions such as memoirs, stories, and photographic archives. This collaboration with the wider public is crucial to initiating new lines of inquiry and curating other Walks in the years to come.
