  • Note: in Serbian, word for lake (jezero) is almost always a part of the lake's name. If the name is given as a noun, jezero precedes it (Jezero Gazivode), if the name is given as an adjective (usually with the -ko suffix), jezero comes after (Vlasinsko jezero).

Kosovo[edit]

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 107 out of 193 United Nations member states.
