Grigor Prlicev (also spelled Parlichev or Prlichev) was a poet, who was born in Ohrid on 18-01-1830 and died in Ohrid on 25-01-1893.

He is famous for his poem "Sirdar" (military leader). In this poem, he writes about the difficult position of the Macedonians, taking as a basic motive the Macedonian folk song about Kuzman Kapidan. Kuzman Kapidan was a famous hero and protector of Christian people.

Grigor Prlicev also wrote a poem with the title "Skenderbeg", a prominent historical figure in the history of Albania.

In Ohrid he was fighting against the Greek propaganda in the churches and the schools, because of which he was arrested and put in the prison in Debar.

As far as I know, the memorial house of Grigor Prlicev can not be visited, or maybe only on his birthday or day of death.

The grave of Grigor Prlicev can be found behind the Church of St Bogorodica Perivleptos.
