Fushë Kosova

Fushë Kosova is a city and the seat of the municipality of the same name in central Kosovo, only about five kilometers southwest of the capital Prishtina . Fushe Kosova means blackbird field; this is also used in German as a synonym for the entire region. The city of Fushe Kosova is called Ovası in Turkish. The Turkish name was also known when Kosovo was under Ottoman rule.

The place is at an altitude of 543 meters above sea level on the eastern slope of a wide valley formed by the Sitnica River. The railway line from Skopje to Mitrovica, which used to lead via Kraljevo to Belgrade, runs on the western edge of the city. This is where the route from West Kosovo to Pristina crosses. At this intersection is the Fushë Kosova train station.

The city is the most important junction in the railway network of the railway company Trainkos. This is where the north-south connection from Kraljevo in western Serbia to North Macedonia and the east-west connection from Nish via Prishtina to Peja and Prizren intersect. The municipality of Fushë Kosovë is rich in natural resources, which form the objective basis for the accelerated development of this region. This municipality has the following land areas: arable land 7670 ha, gardens 591 ha, orchards 97 ha, meadow pastures 522 ha, forests 3670 ha2.
An airport was built on the territory of this municipality or in the village of Albanë e Madhe (Sllatinë e Madhe), which in recent decades has become an international center of air traffic.
