I understand what the architect was trying to do and applaud his vision. Unfortunately, what may have looked good on paper is a visual disaster. While voting it as the ugliest building in the world is probably an overreaction, it is not a handsome building.

This building was on my list of sites to see in Pristina as it was voted ugliest building in the world...but it’s actually quite pretty! I didn’t go inside but from the outside it’s quite pretty. Definitely worth taking a look.

Don't trust what is said on the internet, this is a beautiful building resplendent in concrete and metal bars with interior that transport the visitor to the 1960/70s. For all stark architectural enthusiasts.

A very interesting building, definitely worth a visit! It's easy to find and if you go over to the Cathedral of Saint Mother Teresa, you can have a great view of the city!

This is truly a unique building, and a great example of brutalism. The library is located near the main square, and surrounded by a park... very pleasant walk, and in my mind, one of the top landmarks in Pristina.

The outside of this building is unique and makes the library incredibly easy to find but the side of the building is absolutely beautiful.

Definitely a must see. Have never seen anything of such design before. It is also in the middle of the park where you can sit on the grass and chill.
