Opolje


Opolje

Opolje or Opoja (Serbian: Опоље, Opština Opolje) is northern region of the municipality of Dragaš in the southern most part of Kosovo[a] with Gora being the southern one.

Opolje comprises 19 villages with a population of 30.000 (including Dragaš). Its population is almost exclusively of Albanian ethnicity, whereas the population of Gora is Gorani. Only the town of Dragaš has a mixed ethnicity.

Originally Opolje and Gora were separate municipalities, but they got merged into the municipality of Dragaš by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). Serbia has not officially recognized this act.[a]. Opolje is part of the District of Prizren.
