Districts of Kosovo


The districts of Kosovo (Albanian: Rajon, Regjion or Qark; Serbian Cyrillic: Округ, transliterated: Okrug or Region)[1] are the higher-level administrative divisions of the partially recognized Republic of Kosovo.

Kosovo is further divided into municipalities (Albanian: Komuna, Serbian: Oпштина, transliterated: Opstina).

District changes in 2000

Under the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), established in 1999, new districts were formed in 2000.

Serbia protested about the new territorial division and does not see it as legitimate, but by the United Nations Mission in Kosovo administration implemented it regardless of Serbia's protests, because it has such authority established by virtue of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244.

The UNMIK administration (established in 1999), replaced the Districts of Kosovo and Metohia with new districts of Kosovo (UNMIK). The new districts are:
