From One Prison to Another

Modernisation period in Prishtina started at the end of the nineteenth century. The building of the first Albanian school opened during this period, and buildings that are still standing today, such the Kosovo Museum and the Kosovo Statistics Agency (ASK), were constructed.

The building of the Kosovo Statistics Agency (ASK) was used as a prison during the fascist occupation and as a detention facility by the communist government after the end of WWII. Besides, this building housed for a while the editorial office of the well-known daily newspaper “Rilindja”
