Administration

The regional unit Chios is subdivided into 3 municipalities. These are (number as in the map in the infobox):

  • Chios (1)
  • Oinousses (2)
  • Psara (3)
  • Prefecture

    As a part of the 2011 Kallikratis government reform, the regional unit Chios was created out of the former prefecture Chios (Greek: Νομός Χὶου). The prefecture had the same territory as the present regional unit. At the same time, the municipalities were reorganised, according to the table below.
