The border line between Kosovo (to the North) and Macedonia (to the South) goes Northeast along the Šar Mountains, passes over the triangulation point 2,651 m (8,698 ft) in the area s.c. Peskovi, then turns a little Southeast-ward before moving Northeast passing over the elevation 2,597 m (8,520 ft). [1] Peskovi is 2,651 m (8,698 ft) high. It is the second highest mountain in Kosovo after Đeravica at 2,656 m (8,714 ft). Several lakes are found on the Kosovan side.

Notes and references[edit]

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.
