I guess they repaint it from time to time. When I was there in December 2014, the monument was graffiti'd and vandalised. It's nice, but it's not gonna be the highlight of your trip.

The Newborn monument is a perfect way to show off that Kosova is finally independant and therefore newborn in a way, from February 2008.

This iconic monument is a must-see for anyone visiting Pristina. A great photo opportunity. Re-painted regularly with a new theme. Current theme is camouflage + bullet holes (??).

It is a key attraction for the locals so you shouldn't miss it. It is interesting that the colors of the letters are changed due to different themes.

This "monument" consists of the letters "NEWBORN" spelled out in metal letters that are rather marked up with grafiti. Good photo op.

The monument itself is exactly what you would expect, a row of letters saying 'Newborn'. Good for a photo, but it is what it stands for which is more poignant.
