Demographics[edit]

The village of Nakolec has a Sunni Albanian majority and an Orthodox Macedonian minority.[2] A small number of Albanian speaking Muslim Romani used to live in Nakolec which during the latter decades of the 20th century have migrated to Ohrid and Resen.[2] In the late Ottoman period, a few Turks and some Bektashi Albanians, known locally as Kolonjarë, used to also reside in the village of Nakolec (Turkish: Nakoleç).[3][2]

Nakolec has 262 residents as of the most recent national census in 2002.[4] The village has long had a multiethnic population.[5]
