Ferizaj is relatively a new city. This municipality has started to develop since year 1873 when the railroad and the railroad station were built. (HYPERLINK "http://sq.wikipedia.org/wiki/1873" o "1873" 1873). In the time of speaking there was a hostel (dosshouse) that existed and the owner of it was Feriz Shashivari. Based on the owners name Feriz Shashivari this city possessed the name Ferizaj. After the war this city was comparatively destroyed (shattered). Today comparing with other cities it is considered the second most developed city after the capital Prishtina in Kosovo. Some of the factories and enterprises that before many years were basis for the expansion of the economy in this municipality are yet functioning.

Bifurcation is a natural phenomenon where one river divided into two branches of a flow of water and pours into different seas’. There are only two cases like this in the world, so one of them is in Kosovo- in the Nerodime River. One branch pours into the Lepenc river and continues to Vardar river and Aegean Sea, the other branch flows on the other side and pours in to Sitnica River which then pours into Iber River and in the end in the Black Sea. This natural and interesting phenomenon can be visited every day. If you want to reach this point it can be easily done if you arrive there through the city of Ferizaj. The road to there is not really well-build however it is passable. The road is provided with different signs so it is nearly impossible to lose the way. The bifurcation phenomenon of the division of the river can be viewed really clearly from the grinder which was renovated and is open for tourists.
