Orikum is a town and a former municipality in the Vlorë County, southwestern Albania. At the 2015 local government reform it became a subdivision of the municipality Vlorë.[1] It was named after the ancient city Oricum, which was located 4 km west of modern Orikum. The population at the 2011 census was 5,503.[2] The municipal unit consists of the town Orikum and the villages Dukat Fushë, Dukat, Tragjas and Radhimë.[3] Nearby the modern city is located the only marina in Albania, Marina of Orikum (as of 2011).[citation needed]
