#3 of 7 in Things to do in Prizren
The Šar Mountains or Sharr Mountains, form a mountain range in the Balkans that extends from Kosovo and the northwest of the Republic of Macedonia, to northeastern Albania. The mountain is colloquially called Šara.EtymologyIn Antiquity, the mountains were known as Scardus, Scodrus, or Scordus (το Σκάρδον ὂρος in Polybius and Ptolemy). which evolved into its modern name. In the early 16th century, it was recorded that the mountain was called Catena mundi (Latin for "the chains of the world").Sometimes the range is called Carska planina ("Tsar's mountain"), as a reference to the capitals (Prizren and Skopje), courts (Nerodimlje, Pauni, Svrčin, etc.) and monasteries (Monastery of the Holy Archangels) of the Serbian Empire located in the region.

  • Took a taxi to Brod in the Sharr montains from Prizren. Met Sharr Montain Dogs and a shepherd and marvelled at the snow capped Sharr mountains surrounding Brod. A highlight of our visit to Prizren.  more »
  • Getting out here on a Sunday was a bit difficult as the mini-buses were not running, but this area was SO unspoiled, beautiful, and just stunning in fall. Recommend to anyone visiting Prizren!  more »
