Notes and referencesEdit


  1. ^ a b 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. 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 (this note self-updates) 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.

Прва од резиденција која је била подигнута били су Пауни, нешто касније биће подигнути Неродимље и Штимље. Ове три резиденције ле- жале су на обали језера, док ће четврта резиден- ција, Сврчин бити подигнута на острву на средини језера. Прецизније, Пауни су били на самој обали језера, преко пута (на острву) је био Сврчин, док су Штимља били неколико километара северније, (исто тако на обали) а Неродимља неколико километара западно (под тврђавом Петрич) на речици Неродимки.
