Košarka (meaning basketball in Macedonian and Serbo-Croatian) is an abandoned Turkish village in the mountains of the eastern mountain valley of the municipality Demir Kapija in the Republic of Macedonia. Most of its residents moved down, close to the highway to develop another village, Laki. Laki is not a registered village, yet, but electricity has been brought to the villagers. There is a fountain where the village used to be, yet, difficult to find, as the footpath has been worn, hardly ever used.
