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.

  • Unique and iconic spot. Perfect for taking a photo. However, there is a kiosk of some kind blocking one of the letters making it impossible to take a photo of the whole place.
  • Independence obelisk. Changes is colors every year depending on the most important issues during the year.
  • Kind of wack partially knocked over. Bare wack graffiti
  • 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.
  • Just an outdoor ambience downtown in Prishtina.
