About
Pristina’s new cathedral, unofficially named after the famous ethnic Albanian nun, is a welcome addition to city’s skyline. Built in new-renaissance Italianate style, its two campanile towers will reach 70 metres once completed, but building work appears to have slowed down since the venue’s consecration in September 2010. Some €1 million was raised for the building by the Albanian diaspora. While the building is open to public, remember it’s still a building site so say your prayers before entering.

It cost one euro to go to the top of the bell tower. From this view you could see all of the city. Great place to take pictures for any photo enthusiast. inside the chapel it was breathtaking the walls where covered in stain glass windowsthe acoustics in the main room where breathtaking. I came at a good time because they where having an instrumental rehearsal. You would have thought things where miked but no it was all natural and Angelic. I highly recommend a visit regardless of ones faith.

Nice church on the inside which is free to enter and relaxing on the inside. To the left hand side is the tower which you can take the lift up for 1 euro 50. It’s a very slow lift but well worth it once you reach the top, with great views over the city and a true 360 degree experience. It’s easy to take photos as the bars are spaced wide apart and you can even see up into the bell tower when they start ringing. Totally worth the small cost for a different perspective on the city, especially if you’re visiting the church already.

Very kitch cathedral without any architectonical qualities. What’s worse is that those behind have introduced a lot of decorations that should not be present in a church such as Albanian Eagle, Skanderbeg and Ibrahim Rugova. The tower has a different style than the main building. Used cheap materials, bad execution of the work, the cathedral is not completed yet but one could see a lot of cracks on the floors etc.

Actually it is not a real cathedral, it is the national library - although it really looks like a cathedral.
A magazine has choose this building into the 10 worst looking buildings - from the outside it is really interesting and does not fit into the landskape. From inside I could not see it.

The first picture of the first review it's not correct, it is depichting the National Library.
The largest church of the Kosovo and the largest building of the city it's dedicated to a Catholic Saint : Mother Teresa of Calcutta because she was born in Albania in 1910 her name was Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu..
If you think that catholic people here in Kosovo are only the 2 % of the people you may understand why the construction of such a big church was not well received

This was the first place we visited while on our city tour of Prishtina. The church is beautiful, and stands tall just outside the city center. The inside is really pretty, as it is very simple and nothing was over done. The memorial to Mother Teresa was just so beautiful.

In but confused the church is the one with the statue of the ex president Ibrahim Rugova in front of it. The one that TA shows is the library I think. The mother Teresa building looks like any other cathedral but with a modern look.

This is a modern attempt to create a medieval cathedral.
It is less than a decade old, and was built to honor Mother Teresa, but the stained glass windows are all about local klan families; most of whom are linked to either political figures or corporations.
The cathedral does an amazing job at displaying how incredible the real medieval cathedrals are, as this modern attempt honestly cannot compare to them.
Nevertheless, it is still a grand place worth seeing.
The clock tower is probably its most noteworthy aspect.
It is a fitting and respectful honor Mother Teresa, both her faith and her life.
I simply walked in the front door of the cathedral but later seen a side entrance other people were waiting to enter through. So I am not sure if they are both correct or not.

It is the biggest church in Pristina, but it is still a church. Nothing more, nothing less. Rumors say it is cool to walk up the tower for a view, but it was closed when I was there.
