Brrut has two mosques which were built early and renovated in recent years. Brrut has several archaeological sites of importance for cultural heritage, including the ruins of an Albanian Orthodox castle and church, old cemeteries, burial grounds, etc. Brrut has traditional music, dance, horse racing and some pagan festivals like Summer on March 14, where a fire is lit for this holiday and traditional Flija food, the feast of harvest and St. George, Jeremiah St. Collie, Shiribudi etc. In addition to this Brruti also has some traditional accessories (Loom, crochet, boshti, furka), for making traditional clothes even though this is no longer practiced, there are still people who know how to do it. Also a resident possesses seeds of a characteristic plant which is used to work different clothes and oil paintings for painting. Another important point is the fact that the peasants of Brrut, as well as the surrounding villages, attach great importance to marriage, betrothal and circumcision fest.[2]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ 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 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo is currently recognized as an independent state by 98 out of the 193 United Nations member states. In total, 113 UN member states recognized Kosovo at some point, of which 15 later withdrew their recognition.
