Throughout the history, water served and sustained societies, and it was considered one of the crucial factors for their development. People have shaped their flow, form, and function for the development of settlements and civilizations and have created socio-economic and cultural structures around them. Looking at the historical development of the city of Prizren, the city has been spread and developed around the river, which passes in the middle of it. The clean and flowing water from the river was one of the most important factors in the development of the city. The city of Prizren was also known for its sophisticated system of water channels used to have that played a very important role in the urban area. The water channels were branched from the river and scattered throughout the neighborhoods of the city. Further, these channels branched into smaller channels, which carried water through small public streets to each house in Prizren. The paper deals with the revitalization method to restore these historical water channels in the Historic Center of Prizren to modern requirements, from which the greatest benefit would have the citizens of Prizren in social, economic, spatial, and environmental aspects.
