Prokletije is a mountain range that stretches across the territory of three countries: Montenegro, Albania and Serbia (part of Kosovo and Metohija). They belong to the large Dinaric system, which stretches from Slovenia to Albania in a length of 650 km. The highest peak of Prokletije and at the same time the entire Dinaric system is Maja Jezerce (2694 m). The name „Prokletije“ or in Albanian “Bjeshket e Nemuna”, which means cursed or forbidden mountains, best describes this wild landscape of the Balkan Peninsula.
