Ioannina - The enchanting capital of Epirus
Saturday, 07 June 2014
An enchanting city spread along the banks of Pamvotida Lake. It is full of castles, monuments, traditional houses, and studios of silversmiths, goldsmiths and skilled woodcarvers. It has a strong artistic and spiritual character and houses an important university. It also has a booming nightlife, because of the thousands of university students. In the middle of Pamvotida lake, there is a small islet with few inhabitants that looks like something out of a painting. The city is full of trees and flowers. And the view from the nearby Mitsikeli Mountain is just breathtaking.
