Walked to NEWBORN in Pristina. These large steel letters celebrate Kosovo independence. They sit roadside near the Sports Centre and are quite unique. Well worth a look.

The monument has had a slight artistic change from the original saying "Newborn" the N and W are laying down and it now reads No Walls on the ground with E Born still standing - cleverly done.

Kosovo is a young country, and I like that they reflect their changing status by changing the painting/design each year. While the one in the photo is yellow, it's currently silver and brick, with the N and W 'knocked down' to protest a wall being built between ethnic groups in the north of the country. It's something interesting to see,... More

Located close to the city centre and police station. The color of the monument is not always the same. Nice place to see and make photos. Some letters of the monument can lie in the floor reflecting the situation in public.

The importance is that it is a symbol of newly formed state. It changes color and physionomy every year.

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 city. Central, easily located and well worth a visit when in Pristina

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.

Symbolizes the rebirth of the country. It is repainted occasionally to represent the political atmosphere. For being a significant symbol of the nation, it is not located in what would be considered a prestigious location. (it is in front of a shopping area restaurant. It is worth stopping by to look out, but it is not something you would spend... More
