Newborn Monument, Pristina

3.2
Kosovo's iconic Newborn Monument commemorates the small country's independence from Serbia. Unveiled on February 17, 2008, it consists of 3 m (10 ft)of block letters spelling out the word "Newborn." The letters were originally painted bright yellow and later re-painted with the flags of countries that recognized Kosovo's independence, which today amounts to just over half of UN member states. The monument is repainted differently every year and unveiled on the anniversary of the country's independence. Bring your camera along to capture photos of this significant artwork that's featured prominently on front pages all over the world.

  • The monument is not here they all come in and of itself, but it is symbol effect that is important here. Located right next to a small shopping centre and some restaurants

  • This metal sculpture was made for Kosova's Independence Day and it has changed its view every year. This year, since it is the 10th anniversary of Kosova's Independence, the letter B has been replaced...  more »

  • NEWBORN: Amazing masterpiece and breakthrough! New message with aim to connect new people with new ideas! A temple of peace and hope, symbol of Pristina. Thank you!
  • Well if you're in Prishtina, many would consider this a 'must see'. In reality it's a fairly average symbol, but of sonething with great significance to the local population. Their fight for independence, the birth of their nation. Kosovo itself is far cleaner and more modern than I had imagined, with a lovely chilled vibe. Worth a visit.
  • Nice symbol of new establishment of the Kosovo country which is “now” celebrating 10th year anniversary. There should be more care from city to remove graffiti.
  • Part of the city center with a close access to the roads, parking lots and the main city square. It is under the shade of the central shopping mall and youth and sports' center, adjacent to nice caffees and restaurants
  • Ahora lo han cambiado por los 10 años y pone New10born.
