Ioannina (Lake Pamvotis)
Ioannina is the capital and largest city of Epirus. It lies at an elevation of approximately 500 metres above sea level, on the western shore of Lake Pamvotis.
The city's foundation has traditionally been ascribed to the Byzantine Emperor Justinian in the 6th century AD. In the period between the 18th and 19th centuries, the city was a major center of the Modern Greek Enlightenment. Ioannina was ceded to Greece in 1913 following the Balkan Wars. The city's emblem consists of the portrait of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian crowned by a stylized depiction of the nearby ancient theater of Dodona.
