Istog or Istok is a town and municipality in the Peja district of north-western Kosovo. The town is the administrative capital of the municipality, which includes the town and the surrounding villages.
The name of the town comes from the archaic version of the Bosnian/Serbian word istok (modern version istek), meaning “well, water source” referring to the springs of the Istočka river, a tributary to the White Drin river. The name of the nearby village of Vrella, one of the largest settlements in the municipality, also means “springs”, as does the newly proposed Albanian name of the town, Burimi.
