Čičavica (Albanian: Çiçavica; Serbian: Чичавица, Čičavica) is a mountain situated at the center of Kosovo[a] with a length of about 8 km (5 mi) and a width of about 5 km (3 mi). Its highest peak reaches to a height of 1,091 m (3,579 ft). It is in the boundary line between the Drenica region and the Kosovo Plain. The river Sitnica passes close by it. The village of Stanovci is located to the right of the mountain. Large towns and cities like Pristina, Vučitrn and Obilić are located close by the mountain.

During the 1998-1999 Kosovo War many villagers took refuge in the mountain until the war ended.

Notes:

a.   ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received formal recognition as an independent state from 111 out of 193 United Nations member states.
