Description Change this

The Miners Monument is situated in the Northern half of Kosovo, in the Serbian part of the town of Mitrovica. Two columns holding a mining cart represent the mining tradition of the city. The monument is a memorial to Mitrovica’s Albanian and Serbian miners who lost their lives during World War II, symbolizing unity between the ethnic groups. After Yugoslavia disbanding, tensions between Albanians and Serbs and the Kosovo war has caused the monument to lose some of its significance.
