Kosovo List of Monuments

Llukaq Mosque near today's Union Building on Mother Theresa Street, was destroyed to make room for Hotel Iliria

On the basis of the 1977 law, a list of 426 'protected' cultural monuments across Kosovo was drawn up. This 'Kosovo List' is not a fair representation of all of Kosovo's heritage. It includes 106 Orthodox Churches but only 42 residencies in the whole of Kosovo. There is only one architectural ensemble that is protected. The list ignores all architectural heritage of the past century.
