Poliçan is a city situated in south-central Albania. The population at the 2011 census was 4,318. It is surrounded by several hills from whom it is said the nominative derives from. It is composed by few neighbourhoods like Plirez, Pronovik, Kalluc, Poligon, Lavdar and City center. Historically city of Polican has been part of Berat County except from 1978-1991 when city was made part of Skrapar due to political pressure of regime at that time. It is a great city even though it was industrial made.
For long time it has been called the "ghost" town, from whom not much more was been revealed for security reasons.
The economy of the town is still concentrated in the weapons industry, in which the biggest part of the community works. However, after the collapse of the communist regime in 1990, the production has collapsed. The industrial sector is also active through a small factory for the production of beer.
