Mitrovica, in northern Kosovo
A statue of Isa Boletini, near the Ibar River Bridge, looking towards the Serbian sector in the north, across the bridge. Isa Boletini (1864 – 1916) was a Kosovo Albanian nationalist figure and guerrilla fighter against Ottoman forces in the Ottoman Kosovo Vilayet. He joined the Albanian nationalist League of Prizren and participated in the Albanian Declaration of Independence in Vlorë (November 1912) but was killed during a shoot-out in Podgorica in January 1916. On the so-called miners hill across the river is the miners monument, dedicated to the miners of the city (Albanian and Serbian partisans), who lost their lives during World War II and meant to overcome national divisions and have peaceful coexistence between the two communities in post-war Yugoslavia.
