Suhareka, Therandë or Suharekë (Albanian: Therandë, Theranda or Suharekë, Suhareka; Serbian: Сува Река, Suva Reka Turkish: Suhareka) is a town and municipality in the Prizren district of southern Kosovo.[1]

It is located 18 kilometres (11 miles) from Prizren, and 57 km (35 mi) from Pristina.


The name Suha Reka means "dry river" in Serbian. After the 1999 Kosovo War, Albanians referred to the town as Theranda, the name of the ancient fortress of Theranda, located near Prizren.
