Orikum - Key information

Orikum, a town with a storied past, finds its place along the southwestern coastline of Albania, nestled within the municipality of Vlorë. The town takes its name from the ancient city of Oricum, which lies just 4 km west of today’s Orikum. This small yet vibrant locality is composed of the town itself and the surrounding villages of Dukat Fushë, Dukat, Tragjas, and Radhimë.

The area is lauded for its proximity to the Marina of Orikum, making it a focal point for nautical enthusiasts and a hub for maritime activities. The marina also adds a touch of luxury to the town’s quaint and serene atmosphere. Orikum’s blend of historical significance, owing to its ancient namesake, and its modern facilities, including the marina, create an appealing destination for both history buffs and modern travellers. It’s a place where one can trace the echoes of antiquity while enjoying the comforts and amenities of contemporary life on the Albanian Riviera.
