  • The National Library, located on the university's campus, is reminiscent of the barbed wire fences still visible in the country today. Fittingly, not far from the library, the Church of Christ the Saviour, which was unfinished by the war, is also cordoned off. For the National Library, a different iconographic architecture would have been better suited than the barbed wire structure, e.g. optical structures of cosmopolitanism and tolerance

  • Pristina is keeping its heritage not just with the ancient monuments and museums pieces but also with buildings that managed to stay up during the war. This is a nice and original element of the city.  more »
