Bill Clinton Boulevard is a boulevard located in Pristina, Kosovo.[a] Following the Kosovo War of 1998 to 1999, Albanians in Kosovo wanted to thank former U.S. President Bill Clinton for his help in their struggle with the government of Yugoslavia. A 10-foot-high (3.0 m) statue of Clinton was unveiled on the boulevard on November 1, 2009, at a ceremony in which the former president spoke.[1]

Elsewhere in Pristina, another street has also been named after U.S. President George W. Bush.[2] In addition, several cities in Kosovo, including Prizren, have streets named after President Woodrow Wilson.
