  • This is arguably the most stunningly ugly building I’ve ever seen in my life...and I loved it. Well worth a look if you’re in Pristina!  more »
  • One of the most charismatic buildings in the city, with a particular and different architecture. Striking its exterior, functional and austere its interior. Smell of old man. He needs reform. Free access (no license or accreditation required to enter), ample opening hours.
