  1. Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognised as an independent state by 108 out of 193 United Nations member states.

Прецизније, Пауни су били на самој обали језера, преко пута (на острву) је био Сврчин, док су Штимља били неколико километара северније, (исто тако на обали) а Неродимља неколико километара западно (под тврђавом Петрич) на речици Неродимки.<templatestyles src="Module:Citation/CS1/styles.css"></templatestyles>
