Description Palace of Youth and Sports is a multi-purpose hall located in Pristina, Kosovo. It includes two arenas, larger one has a capacity of 8,000 spectators, while the lesser one has the capacity of 3,000 spectators. It also includes a shopping mall, indoor parking, two convention halls and a library. The whole building has more than 10,000 square meters of area.HistoryIn 1975, a referendum was held, and citizens of Pristina, then capital of the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, voted in favor of building a large hall. The complex was finished in 1977. It was originally named "Boro and Ramiz" (Boro-Ramiz, Боро и Рамиз), after two World War II Yugoslav Partisans and People's heroes of Yugoslavia, Boro Vukmirović and Ramiz Sadiku. Vukmirović was a Montenegrin, while Sadiku was an Albanian, so the name was to symbolize brotherhood and unity of Serbs and Albanians.The building was heavily damaged in a fire on 25 February 2000. It was partially renovated, but the great arena and the large convention hall are still out of use.The ownership of the building is disputed between the Municipality of Pristina and the Kosovo Privatization Agency.
