In the vicinity of the city is the Batllava reservoir, built in the sixties , which was built for the supply of drinking water and which still provides drinking water to the municipalities of Podujeva and Pristina to this day. In summer it is a popular bathing and fishing lake for people from all over the country and is also popular with tourists on their Kosovo vacation.

Lake Batllava is one of the largest lakes in the eastern part of Kosova. It is mainly fed by the small Batllava river, which flows into the Lap a few kilometers below the dam.

If you are coming from Albania the easiest way is the highway Durrës - Kukës - Prizren - Besi. From Mitrovica you can use the regional road through Bajgora.
