Trivia

  • Kosovo is currently the only country with limited international recognition to be featured in the Truck Simulator series. In short, most of Kosovo is of ethnic Albanian descent (96%), but the region is also a critical part of Serbia's national identity, with the 1389 Battle of Kosovo becoming a symbol of Serbian resistance to the Ottoman Empire. Serbia continues to claim Kosovo's territory as its own, and while Kosovo is de facto a sovereign nation, recognition of Kosovo's independence varies greatly around the world. On the in-game map, the Kosovo border with Serbia is marked with a dotted line in acknowledgement of this dispute.
    • Ironically, neither Serbia nor Kosovo share any and all borders in real life.
  • The Steam achievement National Company can be unlocked instantly if the player starts their profile in Kosovo: the country is the second to feature only one city, after Flag of Luxembourg.svg Luxembourg.
