Igoumenitsa, the capital of the Prefecture of Thesprotia, is a beautiful city of about 15,000 inhabitants. It combines the green of the trees with the blue of the sky and the sea because it spreads under a green forest and in front it is wet by the deep blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The port of Igoumenitsa is a connecting link between Greece and Europe.
This makes it one of the largest commercial hubs in the country. The city is connected by ferry to Paxos, Corfu, Patras and Italian ports such as Bari, Brindisi, Venice and Ancona. Currently, two important projects are being carried out in the area for the further economic and commercial development of Igoumenitsa: the Egnatia Odos (Igoumenitsa-Alexandroupolis road connection) and the new Commercial Port.
