The Municipality of Samos belongs to the Prefecture of Samos of the North Aegean Region and includes the island of Samos and the neighboring islets. Its current form is due to the consolidation of the former municipalities of Vathy, Marathokambos, Pythagorion and Karlovasi, according to the Kallikratis program.
The Municipality has an area of 477.62km2 and a population of 32.977 inhabitants, based on the latest census of 2011.
The seat of the Municipality of Samos is the city of Samos or Vathy and its historical seat in Pythagorion.
The island of Samos is the closest to the coast of Turkey. It is a place of origin or residence of great personalities, such as the famous philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, Rikios and Theodoros (6th-5th centuries BC) architects of the Temple of Hera, Mandrockles who built for Darius the floating bridge in the Bosporus, Eupalinos that created the famous aqueduct at Eupalinion, the sculptor Pythagoras, believed to be the work of the Chief of Delphi and Aristarchus, a great astronomer of antiquity.
Samos was first inhabited in the 3rd millennium BC and in 1000 BC the Ionians colonized it. In the 7th century BC near Pythagorion they built the Temple of Hera.
The island had great prosperity and was a great naval force in the years when the tyrant Polycrates ruled it (532-522BC) and was preserved until his death. Tyranny continued by the Persians. Later, Samos came under the custody of Athens, imposed a democratic constitution and joined the Delian League. Then the island was conquered by the Macedonians, the Romans. Even during the Byzantine years, Samos was attacked by Goths, Huns and Pirates. After the fall of Constantinople he was conquered by the Turks. An earthquake, however, in 1475 was capable of destroying Samos, until the Turks, in order to live, gave privileges to new inhabitants. In 1821 the Samians revolted against the Turks and managed to drive them away until the 1830's, the Great Powers decided and gave Samos to Turkey. In 1912 Themistocles Sofoulis landed voluntarily on the island and with the support of the Samians the Turks were persecuted. Samos officially united with Greece in 1913.
Samos or Vathi is a very nice town, built in the middle of a green bay.
Karlovasi is the second port of Samos and a picturesque town. Pythagorio is also a picturesque and tourist center and it is preferred by sailing and high speed boats.
