Summary/Abstract: The article presents a report written by Serbia’s consul in Priština Branislav Nušić, a famous writer, on his official journey from Priština to Skadar in August 1894. The report was written and sent to Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Belgrade in October the same year. Nušić traveled through western part of Kosovo Vilayet (Sanjak of Prizren) and Skadar Vilayet. His report contains important observations about problems concerning Serbia’s interests in the region, as well as suggestions on further steps that, in his opinion, Serbia should take in order to improve impact of Her foreign policy in Turkey. He proposed opening of three new consulates, in Prizren, Skadar and Serez and transferring consulate from Priština to Mitrovica. Furthermore, Nušić emphasized importance of establishing some kind of cooperation between Serbia and Albanian chieftains, predicting that the Albanians will become an important Balkan nation under protection of major European Powers in not so distant future, who will then change political map of the peninsula.
