City

This city is surrounded by hills on the southern and western side. The lake is in the eastern and northern side of the city. The highway linking to TiranaElbasan and Korçë passes through the city. It is located southeast of Elbasan, southwest of Ohrid in North Macedonia, north of Korçë and northwest of Florina in Greece.

It was formed at the 2015 local government reform by the merger of the former municipalities BuçimasÇërravëDardhas, Pogradec, ProptishtTrebinjëUdenisht and Velçan, that became municipal units. The seat of the municipality is the town Pogradec.[1] The total population is 61,530 (2011 census),[2] in a total area of 703.37 km2.[3] The population of the former municipality at the 2011 census was 20,848.[2] Pogradec alone occupies about 15 km².

The earliest human traces in Pogradec area belong to the Early Neolithic period, 8600 cal. B.P, when a small settlement was formed by the shore of the lake in the eastern part of the modern city.

“In the Balkan Eneolithic period there were settlements on piles at the north end of Lake Ohrid by the outflow; at the east end of Lake Malik by the outflow; on one side of Lake Prespa; on the east side of Lake Kastoria; and on one side of Lake Rudnik (Khimadhitis). The later settlements at Malik were not on piles; the level of that Lake was lower throughout the Bronze Age. When Polybius wrote of the account which was used by Strabo,[6] there were two lakes near Lychnidus with their own self-supporting factories for pickling fish. The two lakes which satisfy this description are Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa.
