European route E 65 is a north-south Class-A European route that begins in Malmö, Sweden and ends in Chaniá, Greece. The road is about 4,400 km (2,700 mi) in length.

Itinerary[edit]

The route between Montenegro and Kosovo is unclear, a problem currently shared with E80 which is concurrent with E65 on this section. The existing magistral road that goes via Podgorica through the town of Bijelo Polje continues northwards through western Serbia as E763, away from the direction of Pristina. Instead the route needs to turn to the east some 5 km before Bijelo Polje (Ribarevina junction), and towards Priština. After that, at Rožaje, the route winds slightly northwards again, goes through western Serbia near Tutin, and then enters Kosovo near Kosovska Mitrovica.

Formerly, before 1985, this was the E 14.

^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Kosovo. The latter declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. Kosovo's independence has been recognised by 108 out of 193 United Nations member states.
