Statue of the controversial Albanian nun

The metal statue in the pedestrian zone of the city center. The statue of the controversial Albanian nun. Very similar I've seen in Kosovska Mitrovica

Mother Teresa was born into a Kosovar Albanian family in Skopje, Macedonia. She is widely revered throughout Kosovo and the region. The statue on Mother Teresa Avenue, in Kosovo pays homage to her legacy and her love for people. It is part of a stroll that you can take through the heart of Pristina along the avenue.

I hate to talk negatively about statues and monuments, but this one didn't impress me too much. It's nice and all, but visiting in the winter might have taken away from it as the water was drained. It's worth a short stop to take a photo, but nothing more.

This is hard to miss. It's situated in the centre part and easy to find. Nice statue of Mother Teresa.

Either many people try to give a wrong image of Kosovo as a non tolerant country in religious issues this statue of Mother Teresa proves the contrary, Simple and beatiful statue right in center

Come on guys, that's just a statue. That's definitely not the most impressive, not the best artwork. There are plenty of other things to see in the city that are way more interesting

I will give 5 stars just for the Mother Theresa, but I think the statue is very small for such a great person she was. I believe this mistake will be corrected soon

Statue of Mother Theresa based on the main Mother Theresa Boulevard. The statue's set back and easily missed although based in a pleasant location with seats and green bushes all around.

This statue is in Prishtina, capital of Kosovo. It stands in the town square with the same name. It is not big. Mother Tereza was an Albanian nun and this statue was put with a very good intention- memory of her. One thing that bothers me as a citizen of Prishtina is that since it was put there, nobody takes... More
