    city hall

    The City Hall is located opposite the famous clock in central square in Ioannina center.

    It used to be the Turkish headquarters that was burnt out in 1928. The national bank of Greece built this building in 1936 based on plans of the architect Zoumboulidis in post byzantine style. Until 1950 it was bank branch and in 1960 the bank leaves and at the first floor houses the kings that visit Ioannina while at the ground floor housed for some years the Zosimea Library.

    In our days the city hall is at the first floor while the ground floor is used for art exhibitions. Unfortunately, I never been inside.

    E.H.M. Recreation Centre (Touristiko periptero)

    by StefanosS Updated May 30, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is sited on a hill, watching the whole city and the lake. It was built by the Society for Epirotical Studies, after the traditional architecture, and its internal rooms are decorated like the old mansions of Epirus, with admirable artistic woodcut elements.

    It is functioning as cafeteria and restaurant with both Greek and international Kitchen.

    Near it there is an open-air theatre, constructed also by E.H.M., according to the ancient Greek style. It is used during summer for concerts and performances.
