Municipalities And Communities Of Greece

The municipalities of Greece (Greek: δήμοι - dimoi) are the lowest level of government within the organizational structure of that country. Since the 2011 Kallikratis reform, there are 325 municipalities. Thirteen regions form the largest unit of government beneath the State. Within these regions are 74 second-level areas called regional units. Regional units are then divided into municipalities. The new municipalities can be subdivided into municipal communities (δημοτικές κοινότητες - dimotikes koinotites) or local communities (τοπικές κοινότητες - topikes koinotites).
