Kosovo's iconic Newborn Monument commemorates the small country's independence from Serbia. Unveiled on February 17, 2008, it consists of 3 m (10 ft)of block letters spelling out the word "Newborn." The letters were originally painted bright yellow and later re-painted with the flags of countries that recognized Kosovo's independence, which today amounts to just over half of UN member states. The monument is repainted differently every year and unveiled on the anniversary of the country's independence. Bring your camera along to capture photos of this significant artwork that's featured prominently on front pages all over the world.

Important to the city and some really beautiful designs spread across the letters. Shops and restaurants nearby as well if you fancy a coffee or a beer.
Must see, it is not something extremely amaizing to look at but it meaning is significant for the country. Also it is decorated differently from time to time which makes each time you see it kinda unique experience.
