THE PAMVOTIS LAKE
The city of Ioannina, the largest city in north-western Greece, with a population of over 100,000 inhabitants, is located on the banks of Pamvotis Lake, at an altitude of 500m.
Pamvotis Lake, one of the oldest lakes worldwide and the second oldest at European level, (aged approximately about 7 million years), is a sensitive ecosystem, which belongs to the European network of protected areas, NATURA 2000, because of the important habitats and the rare species of both flora and fauna living in the area. It is located at the foot of the mountain Mitsikeli and covers 22 km2 of the basin.
Its average depth is 4.5 m (deepest point is 8m) and is fed by the mountain Mitsikeli springs, while the outflow of the water is carried through the Lapsista’s ditch and is diverted to the river Kalamas. The Lapsista’s ditch was once a lake as well, which was drained in the 50s.
The existing Pamvotis Lake is the remaining of a larger ecosystem, which also included Lapsista Lake, drained in the 50s. It is worth noting that the existence of the one was directly linked to the proper functioning and the existence of the latter. Lapsista’s surface varied between the seasons and had less depth and surface in comparison to Pamvotis Lake.
