Zubin Potok or Zubin Potoku (Serbian: Зубин Поток / Zubin Potok; Albanian: Zubin Potok or Zubin Potoku) is a town and municipality in the Kosovska Mitrovica district of northern Kosovo.[a] It is a part of North Kosovo, a region with an ethnic Serb majority that functions largely autonomously from the remainder of the ethnic-Albanian-majority Kosovo. According to 1991 census, the municipality had a population of 8,479 people.

Economy[edit]

Zubin Potok is an agricultural community, yet the level of agricultural production has been in decrease due to the lack of investment. Local factories have been also strongly affected by the lack of consumers in the Albanian parts of Kosovo. Since most factories were established as branches of main Serbian factory chains to serve the Kosovo market, their workers are still employed but work and get paid irregularly. A majority of products sold in the municipality are imported from Serbia.
