"Podujevo" or "Podujeva" (, "Podujeva" or "Besiana"; ) is a town and municipality located in the district of Pristina of north-eastern Kosovo.

Podujevo is situated in a strategic position due to a regional motorway and railroad passing through it which links surrounding regions. Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, is located some to the south. Although there is no official data, the total population of the municipality is estimated at 130,000, including the estimated 35,000 inhabitants of the town.OSCE , June 2006, page 2: "Introduction: Area and Population".

Name
The Serbian name of the town, "Podujevo" derives from founder of city "Poduj" which is the older name in history of Serbia..

The Albanian name "Besiana" dates back at least from the VIth century in the writings of Prokopius, who lists Podujevo"s fort as one of the forts of Dardania restaured by Justinian

Recent history

The founding member of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), Zahir Pajaziti, was from the Podujevo region.

During the 1999 Kosovo War the town was the site of the Podujevo massacre, on March 28, in which 14 Kosovo Albanian women and children were murdered by Serbian paramilitary forces.

This town is known for its cattle trade and for its battlefields during the last Kosovo war in 1999. It has over 70 villages. Podujevo is not one of the major cities of Kosovo but has a good potential to invite tourists from around Kosovo and other foreign places for its beautiful mountains and Lake Batlava.

The road coming into Podujevo from Central Serbia was the site of the 2001 Podujevo bus bombing, when 12 Serb pilgrims heading to the Gračanica monastery site were killed and dozens more were injured by a bomb placed by Albanian extremists.

During the violent unrest in 2004, orthodox Saint Elijah Church in Podujevo was burned down and desecrated by Albanians.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OnRyjUwoDY
