The little village of Vrapchin is a modest settlement of huts and cabins, and was forcibly made to change its name by the Greek government to Himadion. It is about 26 kilometres southeast of Lerin and about 17 kilometres southwest of the town of Sorovich. It is on the banks of the Vrapchinsko Lake on the southern most end of the Prespa lake and 21 degrees 33 minutes longitude and 40 degrees 35 minutes latitude and 600 m above sea level.

The little village borders to the north with the village of Insko and to the east with the Vrapchinsko Lake.

Before the start of the Greek Civil War about 15 Macedonian residents lived in the village who were employed in agriculture and raising livestock.
