(240 reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
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. Put Newborn Monument on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Pristina travel itinerary planner.

  • The new theme of Newborn was just unveiled on the 9th anniversary of Kosovo’s independence.
  • If you are in Prishtina you should definitely visit "NEW BORN"
  • You have never been in Prishtina if you don't have a photo here
  • NEWBORN is a new monument that is located infront of our "Boro & Ramizi" oldshchool youth center (From the former Jugoslavia). It is very creative since it gets new paint and new design from time to time. Its worth seeing it and snapping a few pictures :)
  • The Newborn sign in Pristina was unveiled the day the country declared independence from Serbia. Regardless of the opinion on this matter, it's important to recognise that peacefully standing for what you believe is the ultimate exercise of self-determination.
