The Prishtina mall is a new super-regional retail complex located 10km away from the capital city of Pristina, Kosovo. It is one of the largest shopping and leisure complexes in Southeast Europe.

The mall opened in March 2023 and hosts international brands, foods, dining options and entertainment venues. The mall is managed by the property management division of Sonae Sierra, a real estate services provider.

The mall has been recognised as a Level 1 EDGE building for its eco-friendly architecture, energy and water savings, accessibility and modern design by the green building certification system EDGE. It also received the Five Star Best Retail Architecture Award at the International Property Awards in February 2022.


Prishtina mall is located at the intersection of the M2 and M25 highways, south of downtown Pristina, Kosovo.

It is centrally located in the heart of Pristina’s financial district and is positioned as a regional centre that can serve the entire surrounding area of the Balkans.

Design details

The design of the Prishtina mall is inspired by the Shar Mountains in southern Kosovo. The mountain’s highest point is represented by a metal tower featuring the mall’s logo, which is illuminated at night and serves as a beacon.

The plateaus or flat structures of the mall represent the valleys of the mountains. Its green spaces represent the forests, and the starting point of the mall represents the flowing river.

The mall’s public corridors and plazas are landscaped and filled with natural light. The facades have a contemporary design and feature the Prishtina mall’s logo colours.

The mall’s structure features natural materials sourced from local and regional areas, including glue-laminated structures, wood beams, natural stone and glass.

Dining and entertainment options

The new Prishtina mall features a CineStar, the largest movie theatre chain in Southeast Europe. The CineStar features unique interiors, advanced technology, several speciality screens and multifunctional spaces to offer an immersive cinema experience.
