Pogradec - Key information

Pogradec is a serene city seated at the southwestern edges of Lake Ohrid, cradled between mountain ranges that offer a scenic backdrop to this peaceful locale. The city’s climate, with its blend of Mediterranean and continental influences, makes it a pleasant destination throughout the year. The city is home to over 20,000 residents, an integral part of the larger municipal population of 61,530.

Pogradec’s lakeside setting is not only visually arresting but also historically significant, contributing to the area’s UNESCO World Heritage Site status as part of the Ohrid region’s natural and cultural heritage. Close to the city, the Illyrian Royal Tombs at Proptisht add another layer to the area’s archaeological significance, currently on Albania’s tentative list for UNESCO recognition. Pogradec, named for its position ‘beneath the city’, offers visitors a chance to experience a rich historical tapestry in a tranquil environment, ideal for those seeking relaxation by the crystal-clear waters of Lake Ohrid.
