The Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Pristina, Kosovo[a] is an unfinished Serbian Orthodox Christian church whose construction began in 1995. Due to have been completed in 1999, its construction, on the campus of the pre-war University of Pristina, was interrupted by the Kosovo War.
Its construction was not welcomed by the predominantly Muslim population of Kosovo, and its future remains uncertain. Ownership of the building and the land on which it is located is disputed between the current University of Pristina and the Serbian Orthodox Church.
