Klina is shown to be inhabited since ancient times. First mentioning comes from Ptolemy which mentions Chinna, residing close to Narona and 12 miles from Shkodër, both listed as part of Dalmatia. Newer sources mention it populated by the Illyrian tribe of Dardani. There are also sources who place the hypotheses of a Celtic settlement in Illyricum, and a possible Celtic explanation of the name. During Early Middle Ages, Porphyrogenitus mentions the urban center of Desstinik, today Dersnik/Drsnik, where important archeological discoveries of Roman period were made in August 2013, described as: ...the most important discovery of the past few decades to have been made in Kosovo in the area of archaeology.


A symbol of Klina are the Mirusha Waterfalls.


In September 2014, 12 Egyptian families returned to Klina having spent the last 15 years displaced in Podgorica, Montenegro. The families moved straight into a newly constructed neighbourhood as part of project helping refugees from the Kosovo War return to Kosovo.
