History

Monumental eclectic building "Kosovo Museum" (Guest house of Jashar Pasha), is located close to the historic area of the city of Prishtina in street "Ibrahim Lutfiu", which is built around 1885/86. The building was built by the Austro - Hungary for the needs of the Turkish Army. Until 1975 the building has been the military command headquarters during the regime of former Yugoslavia for the Prishtina region. In its yard, there was an Old Clock Tower. Since 1980 the building has been used as a museum of Kosovo. The layout of the building is rectangular, with floors: B+P+2+NK, and built with construction materials like stone, brick, wood and marble. The roof was rebuilt and belongs to "mansard" type, covered with "modern" tiles. The frontal part of the building is emphasized by a steady rhythm of openings and symmetric emphasized one-winged stairs, with semi-circular layout leading from the ground floor up to the first floor.
