Sharr Mountains, Prizren

(25+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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.EtymologyIn Antiquity, the mountains were known as Scardus, Scodrus, or Scordus (το Σκάρδον ὂρος in Polybius and Ptolemy).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.BordersThe mountain borders extend from the city of Prizren, following the two rivers of the Prizren Lumbardhi and the Lepenac. In the east it passes by the town of Kaçanik through the Kačanik Gorge and into Macedonia via the Polog valley. The border passes near the Vardar spring called Vrutok and enters near the valley of Mavrovo. There the Radika river separates the mountain massif from the higher Mount Korab. After that, the border is mounting, reaching the point of junction of three state borders: Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania. The border now follows the road to the small, mountainous, town of Restelica, the rivers of Globocica, Plava and the White Drin and finally reaches the city of Prizren.

  • 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 »
  • When going by car to Prizren from Skopje Saleh from the mountains. 1500 m. Mountain Summit past bel 2747 m (Thomas Hill). We felt the winter weather. From there to Kosovo from Macedonia to Albania. So green. So a Virgin. Service is not enough.
