Our very talented photographer from Kosovo, Arben Llapashtica has made this incredible picture of the National Library of Kosovo. National Library of Kosovo is the most famous building in Prishtina (and probably in Kosovo) with it’s interesting and unique architecture design from Croatian architect Andrija Mutnjaković.
The current building of the National Library of Kosovo was inaugurated on 25 November 1982. It’s space consists of 16,500 square meters. It is made with zenith windows, with a total 99 domes of different sizes and is entirely covered in a metal fishing net, which have their own particular architectural symbolism.
Anyone may use National Library services, but people must be at least 18 to request and order materials from the collections. Items of the Library cannot be borrowed for home use and must be read in one of the reading rooms. About 5000 users are registered every year, making it the most frequented library in Kosovo.
Although considered as one of the ugliest buildings in the world, this doesn’t stop it from being one of the most visited attractions in Kosovo.
