...hmmm I wonder how could a city like this be built in an environment of terror and apartheid as it was portrayed here in the west a couple of yrs ago...I would"nt expect that much investment in infrastructure from a Serbian state accused of exploitation and terror....Hmmm my two cents.Football Rules said:Here is a photo from Prishtina
I was talking about you today with someone...and I thought I might as well tell you what I tell them. I really admire the way you deal with nationalism. You are very proud - but truthful. You don't need to make things up, or twist the truth. You seem proud of SiCG for the right, and truthful reasons. I just wanted to say I admire that.CVRKI said::| Seriously, burazeru, do you know many Serbs called Gjon Kastrioti ?
The fellow's name is Gjergj Kastrioti aka Skenderbeg/Skenderbeu/Iskander-Bey.
His mother, Voisava X, daughter of a nobleman from Polog, an area in today Macedonia, was a Serb.
He's half-Albanian and half-Serb, in fact, and is revered by both Albanians and Serbs of Montenegro.
Oh that's for sure. it was built in teh SFRJ. But even then the state was accused of terror..Anyways, there is no need to elaborate. I like the strange archtecture, that's for sure. :cheers:Mila said:^ Not saying it was or wasn't...but these things were all built before and during the Yugoslavia days.
