Cities are complex organisms, it can be conceptually considered that cities are locally and regionally specific. Pristina in 1486-1487 had only 392 houses and 10 neighborhoods, while in 1689 it was spatially developed with 4000 houses. Pristina became Kosovo's administrative center in 1947, where it had begun to be developed with institutional and urban infrastructure. The cardinal changes that occurred after 1999 and the beginning of the new millennia were many! The study presented in this paper investigated the Prishtina City, focusing on urban planning issues, traffic issues, and urban data. The research methods consist of empirical observation, with an accent to the urban traffic structure. The lack of a sustainable urban mobility plan for the city of Pristina and its linkage to spatial plans in the future will bring serious problems for the city, which will have a negative impact on the quality of life and wellbeing of every citizen living and visits Prishtina. With the enormous number of gravitated vehicles and the lack of parking spaces and facilities, almost every neighborhood in Pristina is in the mental state of protecting the parking space. There is a conceptual urban strategy to offer a variety of public parking spaces and parking garages, also there is a need that those type of buildings blends in within an urban composition. As from urban planning concepts, we stand that in those situations, a more suitable are open-air structures. Prishtina like the other cities must consider implementing a strategy of underground building structures as a whole functional urban system. The current degraded state of the environment and urban health in Prishtina requires specific environment activities.
