Pljačkovica (Serbian Cyrillic: Пљачковица, pronounced [pʎǎtʃkɔʋitsa]) is a mountain in southern Serbia, overlooking the city of Vranje. Its highest peak has an elevation of 1,231 meters above sea level.
Since the mountain is located on a strategic position over the city of Vranje, its peak hosts a TV tower and other telecommunication facilities. It was heavily bombed in the NATO bombing of FR Yugoslavia in 1999, and it is significantly contaminated with depleted uranium ammunition.
