Drenas/Glogovac

Things to do - general

 

Drenas or Glogovac is a town and municipality in the Pristina district of central Kosovo

Drenas municipality is located in central Kosovo, between the Čičavica mountains in the east and the Drenica hills in the north and west. The main road from Pristina to Peja crosses the municipality.

At a junction at Komorani village, a smaller road extends north from the highway, passing through Drenas town and continuing to Skenderaj There are a total of 36 villages in the municipality, including the town of Drenas. The municipality’s population prior to the 1999 bombing was approximately 58,579 made up almost entirely of Albanians, with a small number of Serbs and others only in the Drenas town. No minorities remained in the municipality, thus Drenas today reflects a mono-ethnic environment. Drenas has been the cradle of Kosovo Albanian nationalist movements. Before the conflict the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) had a strong level of influence and controlled large areas of the municipality. Drenas municipality was consequently badly affected, as was the entire Drenica region. A series of Serbian police operations resulting in armed confrontation and civilian casualties represented defining episodes in the escalation of armed conflict in Kosovo.
