Newborn Monument, Pristina

(2.1/5 based on 200+ 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. Put Newborn Monument on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Pristina travel itinerary planner.

  • Not much to look at but iconic and important symbol of the birth of this new nation. Is reprinted each February almost representing further re-birth. Is probably the number 1 photo opportunity in the ...  more »
  • City Center statue. Metal monument establishment of the Republic of Kosovo. Interesting idea and different re-painting each year, 17 February, the day of independence of Kosovo. 
  • See the -Newborn-! It is the symbol of the newly founded Republic of Kosovo. It is easy to navigate everywhere in Prishtina from here.
