Bill Clinton Boulevard


Bill Clinton Boulevard

Bill Clinton Boulevard is located in Pristina, the largest city in the province of Kosovo, Serbia.

History

After the Kosovo War of 1998-1999, the Albanians in Kosovo wanted to thank the American President Bill Clinton for his help in bombing Serbia to forcefully take administration of the southern Serbian province from Belgrade. There were plans to make a statue of him, but they were delayed due to lack of funding.

A large 7.5m mural of Clinton is placed up on an apartment block, bearing the text "Welcome to Bill Clinton Boulevard".Bill Clinton was the first American President to visit Kosovo (Kosova).
