Pogradec

 

The city of Pogradec and its surrounding area, as one of the Albanian beauty pearls, provides much to discover for its visitors. The region dominated by the fantastic Ohrid Lake, surrounded by fields nestled before picturesque mountains, will be your panorama throughout your stay in Pogradec.

 

Lake Ohrid and its surrounding area shine as a splendidly unique ecosystem. Due to its historic culture and its unique flora and fauna, in 1980, Pogradec was declared by UNESCO as a place of worldwide natural and cultural heritage.

 

From Pogradec, residents can enjoy trips to Ohrid in Macedonia (30 minutes) and Korça (45 minutes). The Greek border is only one hour away
