You may think that some hooligans might've thrown down the letters but look again! A new message is written on the floor with the remaining letters standing. 🙌🏼

This is perhaps the most famous tourist attraction in Pristina, a simple monument consisting of seven large freestanding letters spelling out the word 'Newborn' - a reference to the country's status as Europe's youngest. The surface is repainted annually to different colour schemes. The year I visited (2017) I was a bit disappointed to find them grey with brick effect... More

Its clear why its there - to celebrate a rather young nation, Kosovo. Youngest in Europe. But it cleverly changes its "surface" annually and passes a reflection of mood and thoughts to visitors - different stories the committee likes to send. Currently its EBORN as N and W are lying flat. Clearly, a message to our global connectedness via electronic... More

This is a living monument, it changes constantly.Usually are the colors but also other features are added to the structure. Located near a mall, it won't go unnoticed if you pass close to it. A must see in Pristina.

The New Born monument is the symbol of independence of Kosovo and it was built in 2008. Every year for the 17th February (independence day of Kosovo) they change its design. It can be seen just passing by, it's a nice place for pics, as you'll see mostly everyone is there for that reason.

I wouldn't call this a monument, exactly...More like a sign. Still, it's a pretty cool sign with lots of local graffiti.
