Veternik or Veterniku (Albanian: Verternik or Veterniku; Serbian Cyrillic: Ветерник) is a mountain in Kosovo[a]. It is 2,410 m (7,907 ft) high and forms part of the Prokletije. It is located nearby Kopranik, a mountain higher than Veternik but also found in the same range. Veternik differs somewhat from the rest of the Prokletije of Kosovo and resembles more the Albanian part of the range. This is because Veternik's slopes are steep and its limestone is exposed.

Notes and references[edit]


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.
