Newborn Monument, Pristina

(3.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • What at first seems to be an overrated concrete klutz has become quite a favorite port-of-call. On my first visit to Pristina the letters were painted over with the flags of all nations who recognised...  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit for the symbolism. Striking is the rinadcita of a country that began in 2000, currently used by many if not all those who visit it to affix signatures, testimony or graffiti. Not much more to see in Pristina, anyway and pretty centrally located close to the shopping centre which is also very popular.

  • 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"
  • 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.
  • Behind the new born very nice restaurant PIANO
