National gallery

Every capital city in the world needs a national gallery – that’s also true for Prishtinë, Kosovo: the Galeria Kombëtare e Kosovës is located in a rather small building (which is very modern inside) which was built in 1935 as a barrack of the Yugoslavian army. The museum exists since 1976 and the building is now mostly used for changing exhibitions of contemporary local and international artists. Even if the state Kosovo is still young there is already a long history of regional artists.

The museum shows artworks of artists of all ethnic groups living in Kosovo and also of international artists. They’ve got a close collaboration with other museums on the Balkans and support local artists by organizing several awards. The national gallery is located on the grounds of the university directly behind the national library with its unique architecture.
