Day Of Memorial And Respect For Veterans

Day of Memorial and Respect for Veterans is a holiday observed in Kosovo on March 6th each year. The purpose of this holiday is to memorialize all the veterans who have died while defending their country, as well as all the veterans who are still serving the nation.

On this day, citizens are encouraged to show their appreciation to everyone serving and respect to all those who have already served. Although this holiday is widely observed across the Republic of Kosovo, it’s a working holiday, so citizens don’t receive the day off, and businesses don’t close on this day.
