It is on the road Lerin-Kostur between the Bela Voda Mountain and Bigla Mountain at 21 degrees 15 minutes longitude and 40 degrees 47 minutes latitude and 1,400 metres above sea level. It is about 25 square kilometres in area.

The village borders to the northeast with the village Buf, to the east with the village Armensko, to the southwest with the village Zhelevo, and to the west it borders Germanska Mountain.
