Pristina holidays

Once voted the ugliest capital in Europe, Pristina isn’t the most instantly likeable of cities, but in some ways this is all part of its charm. It’s a new capital, of a new country still trying to find its place in Europe. Highlights include the Imperial Mosque, the Cathedral of Pristina and the National Library. The latter is also considered ugly by some, but it tells a story of Kosovo; the building is encased in twisted metal topped with white domes, to symbolise the silencing of the Albanian people and culture. Another highlight is the Newborn Monument, a typographic sculpture that was unveiled on Independence Day (17 February 2008) and which is repainted each year.
