Shulin (Macedonian: Шулин), formerly known officially as Diellas, is a village southeast of Lake Prespa in the Pustec Municipality of the Korçë County, Albania.[1]

Demographics[edit]

According to a survey by Georgi Trajčev in 1911 and 1912, Diellas had 23 houses and 375 residents.[2]

A 2007 estimate put the village population in the range of 600 to 650 people.[3]

In 2013, the village's official name was changed back from "Diellas" to "Shulin", the Macedonian name.[4]

People from Shulin[edit]

Dialect[edit]

Although Shulin is located in modern-day Korçë County, the village traiditionally belongs to the Lower Prespa region, and therefore its inhabitants speak the Lower Prespa dialect rather than the neighbouring Korča dialect of the Macedonian language.
