This paper presents the results of the research on the physical activity of the school youth in Kosovo, in different stages of socio-economic development and, therefore, of different possibilities and conditions in terms of leisure and mobility. The purpose of this cognitive study was to diagnose certain aspects of the lifestyle of young people aged 13-16 from Kosovo, with a particular focus on physical activity. The practical aim, however, was an indication of such actions, arising from past experience, that would aim at improving lifestyle, and could lead to the elimination or prevention of certain causes of not making movement activity by the youth of Kosovo. The research was conducted by the use of diagnostic survey in the group of 300 people aged 13-16, among whom there were 152 girls, 148 boys. The research material was collected in 2012. The research that was carried out shows which forms of leisure time activities are taken by the youth. Undoubtedly the socio-cultural factors and the tradition of social life, which impose certain ways of spending leisure time (as can be seen particularly in the case of the Kosovo youth) are also here of great importance. The above observations, taking into account local conditions, should be the starting point for all those who plan introducing changes in physical education systems in Kosovo in the future.
