Brod (Albanian: Brod, Serbian Cyrillic: Брод) is a village in south of Kosovo, in the region of Gora, in the municipality of Dragaš. It is part of the District of Prizren. The majority of people are Gorani. Brod is a big village with 900 houses.

The Gorani speak Našinski. A small part near the cities also speak Albanian, as well as Serbian. In the 1991 Yugoslav census, 54.8% of the inhabitants of the Gora municipality said they spoke the Gorani language (Našinski), roughly in proportion to the number who considered themselves primarily ethnic Gorani.

Gorani are a Slavic Muslim ethnic group inhabiting the Gora region - the triangle between Kosovo, Albania, and the Republic of Macedonia. They number an estimated 60,000 people, and speak a transitional South Slavic dialect, called Našinski (simply meaning 'ours').

In Kosovo, the Gorani number 10,265 inhabitants, which is drastically lower than before the Kosovo War. In 1998, it was estimated that their total population number was at least 50,000.

Most Gorani state that the unstable situation and economic issues drive them to leave Kosovo. There is also some mention of threats and discrimination by ethnic Albanians. The UN administration in Kosovo, UNMIK, has redrawn internal boundaries in the province in such a way that a Gorani-majority municipality no longer exists. The Gora municipality was combined with the neighboring Albanian-inhabited region of Opolje (some 20,000 people) into a new subdivision named Dragaš, which now has an Albanian majority.

During the Kosovo War, the Gorani mostly supported the Serbian cause. The Kosovo Liberation Army exercised particularly strong pressue on the Goranci, disallowing them to practise their language at schools and in everyday life in order to misrepresent them as Albanians.

After the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia which began on 24 March, the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) subsequently took over administration of AP Kosovo and Metohija. The Gora municipality was disestablished, and a new municipality was formed which joined Gora with neighbouring Albanian-inhabited Opolje into the new "Dragash" municipality, in which Albanians constituted the majority. In 1999, after the NATO bombings, Albanian attacks on Gora resulted in the death of 11 inhabitants; some 56 bomb attacks and other types were made

In 1999 and over the years altogether, between 5,000 and 10,000 Gorani have fled to Serbia proper and other countries along with many Serb and Romani refugees.

In 2007 the Kosovar provisional institutions opened a school in Gora to teach the Bosnian language, which sparked minor consternation amongst the Gorani population, added by the fact that the Principal declares as an Albanian. Many Gorani refuse to send their children to school for threats of assimilation and self-initially founded home schools for their young.

Gorani activists have stated that they want Gora (a former municipality with Gorani majority that was merged with the Albanian-inhabited Opolje to form the Dragaš municipality which has an Albanian majority) to join the Community of Serb Municipalities. On 3 November 2013 70% voted in favour of establishing the Gora municipality as part of the Community of Serb municipalities, according to Gorani political leader Safet Kuši.
