Newborn Monument, Pristina

3.3
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.

    Nice place, near the center of Prishtina. You can rest, with a nice milkshake, or coffee, or even perfect ice cream. I prefer it to anyone who visits Prishtina City.

    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 :)
