    80% of monuments here are Serbian national heritage that we claim to be ours, yet we know we Albanians have no real connection with those monuments.

    Monuments in Kosovo are Serbian. Kosovo is a province of Serbia. This site is a scam.

    Every monastery and an old building was built by Serbs. Albanians had nothing to do with it, they burned down over 150 churches and antique buildings.

    That’s disgusting. The pictures taken in Kosovo are Serbian cultural heritage, not Albanians!!! You guys should remove these pics or at least provide true details about the sources. I am shocked that for such a website you are managing, you are posting unreal information.

    I am sorry, no one meant to offend Serbs with this.
    Wiki Loves Monuments national rounds are all about current political borders and not about assigning monuments from people to people.
    Serbia didn’t take part in 2015 contest but you can have a look at 2014 winners: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2014_winners#Serbia
