Glimpses of Pristina
On my recent work trip to Kosovo I was in the capital, Pristina, for two tantalizingly short overnight stays. A jumble of impressions, mostly in twilight or darkness. However I did manage to capture two important landmarks in this newest of nations. Above is the 'Newborn' monument. It was unveiled on 17 February 2008, the day Kosovo declared independence. For the 17 February anniversary this year it was painted with the flags of the nations which recognise Kosovo as an independent nation. As of 16 March they number 101.
Below, the futuristic library of the University of Pristina.
I failed to capture the statue of Bill Clinton, on Bill Clinton Boulevard. Next time.
