Kosovo (Albanian: Kosovë, Kosova; Serbian: Косово, meaning "Land of the Blackbird"), officially the Republic of Kosovo (Albanian: Republika e Kosovës; Serbian: Република Косово) was an unrecognized state and a disputed territory in the Balkans. It was self-declared and had de facto control over most of the territory of Kosovo and Metohija, while North Kosovo, the largest Kosovo Serb enclave, was still under the control of institutions of the Republic of Serbia. Serbia did not recognize the unilateral secession of Kosovo and eventually recaptured it and moved all pro-independence Albanians to Albania.
