About Ioannina

Ioannina (Greek: Ιωάννινα, often Γιάννενα, is a city of Epirus, north-western Greece, with a metropolitan population of approximately 120,000, and lies at an elevation of 510 metres above sea level. It is the capital of Ioannina Prefecture and of Epirus, lying on the western side of lake Pamvotis (Παμβώτιδα). Ioannina is located 440 km northwest of Athens, 290 km southwest of Thessaloniki and 80 km east of the port of Igoumenitsa in the Ionian Sea. The city has both a General and a University Hospital, and is the seat of the University of Ioannina (situated 5 km south of the city, with 17 departments and 20,000 students) as well as several departments of the Τechnological Educational Institute of Epirus.

Ioannina was first mentioned in ecclesiastical registers of the 9th and 10th centuries as an important Byzantine city. At the beginning of the 13th century it was the capital of the Greek despotate of Epirus. After 1318 it reverted to the Byzantine Empire and was made a metropolitanate by Andronicus II, but in 1349 it fell to the Serbs. Subsequently it was contested by the Italians, Albanians, and Turks, to whom it succumbed about 1430. From 1788 to 1822 it was the centre of the Albanian-born despot Ali Pasa Tepelene, whose revolt against the sultan’s rule, although quickly suppressed by his assassination, helped trigger the War of Greek Independence (1821–29). Ioannina and southern Epirus were finally united with the Greek kingdom in 1913.

After the Asia Minor Catastrophe (1922) and the subsequent population exchange, the Turkish element left, and the city received Greek refugees from Asia Minor. In 1943 the Nazis deported the Jewish community of the city and most of its members were killed.
