He was previously banned from traveling there, the Beta agency has reported.
The party said in a statement that "strong police forces blocked the north of the province before the start of the gathering out of fear that Seselj would appear in Kosovska Mitrovica."
Quoting the same statement, Beta said Seselj's message to the SRS supporters was that he would never give up on the fight for "the freedom of Kosovo and Metohija."
SRS Vice President Nemanja Sarovic said that the party was "the only political options that advocates an alliance with Russia," adding this was "the only road to bring Kosovo and Metohija back under Serbia's full control."
Sarovic also accused the ruling parties of having "effectively recognized Kosovo" and of being "fully in service of NATO and the EU."
After the rally, the Radicals organized a walk in the town, with participants carrying a banner reading, "Kosovo is Serbia."
