Regarding the name of the village, Vlogjimjez Pijanka writes that it is ethnic, formed by the suffix "-ans" from the noun "end". Close to this writing are the oral traditions of the crowns that say that here once lived Ukrainians (as the Croatians lived in the neighboring village of Arvati) and that after the ethnic Ukrainians, the village was later named Krani. [2]
In addition, the name of the village Krani is also related to the name of the place Kranj, Slovenia. It is said that at the end of the 16th century and in the beginning of the 17th century, when there were village rioting in Croatia and Slovenia, seeking the salvation in Prespa came the ancestors of the families of the Ciritsovci, and perhaps the Cairns, who were collected from one of the then beys for to cultivate the land. Later, after their place of origin (Kranj), the village was named Krani. The village is located about 2.5km east of the Great Prespa Lake, in one of the deeper western bosom of Mount Baba, in the valley and the middle course of the river Shara ( also known as the Arvati or Kranska Reka, as the locals call it). It is located at an altitude of about 900 meters. [2] From the municipal center, the town of Resen is 24 kilometers away. [3]

No data, no other knowledge that the village was ever moved. [2]

Krani is bordered by the following villages: the village Slivnitsa in the north, the village Arvati in the east, Strbovo in the south and the waters of the lake to the west. [2]

The area of ​​Krani extends to an area of ​​612 hectares (about 6.12 km²) and occupies predominantly plain land. Of the total area of ​​the dumping area: 445.8 hectares are arable land, 99.8 hectares of pastures and 0.9 hectares of forest. [2] [3]

Krani is a large village of assembled, even compacted type, with about 150 houses, all restored or newly constructed, erected on one or several floors. The white facades prevail in the houses. Around the houses there are enclosed courtyards in which the necessary commercial and other facilities (porches, garages, warehouses, stables, barns, summer kitchens, ovens, etc.) are built, and in some there are fruit gardens. The entrance road in the village is also the main street in it, where several side streets come out at different angles. Some of them pass through the four concrete bridges of Shara, which never dries up. According to the grouping of houses and families, the village is divided into five neighborhoods: the Sokolovo Maalo (around the cultural home), the Sadikovsko and the Ojovsko Maalo (on the left), and the Zakirovsko and Kerimovo Maalo (on the right side of the river). The village is mostly spatially developed on the northwest side
