Dollna Gorica

Dolna Gorica formerly Goricë e Vogël, is a village on the western shore of Lake Prespa in the Pustec Municipality of the Korçë County in Albania.

A survey in the late 19th century found Dollna Gorica to consist of 75 houses and 67 male Macedonian Orthodox residents.

In February 1996, the village hosted a conference attended by officials from the Republic of Macedonia on the subject of the ethnic Macedonian minority in Albania.

In 2013, the villages official name was changed from "Goricë e Vogël" to "Dollna Gorica".

A 2007 estimate put the villages population at 550.

In 2002, a library opened in the village consisting of primarily Macedonian-language books.

A monument commemorating the ethnic Macedonian refugees of the Greek Civil War was unveiled in the village in May, 2013.

Dollna Gorica is home to the annual "Day of Wine" event, occurring each December.

Dollna Gorica has a football club, FK Dollna Gorica, that competes with other villages in the Prespa area of Pustec.

The majority of the population are ethnic Macedonians.
