The Municipality of Thiva (Thivaion) belongs to the Prefecture of Boeotia of the Region of Sterea Ellada and its present form is due to the consolidation of the former municipalities of Thebes, Vayion, Plataeans and Thisvi according to the Kallikratis Program. The islands also include islands that exist on the coasts of the Corinthian Gulf: Alatonisi, Vroma, Grompourara, Kouveli, Makronissi, Tabourolo and Fonias.
The Municipality has an area of 822.92 km2 and a population of 36,477 inhabitants, based on the latest census of 2011.
The seat of the Municipality of Thebes is the city of Thebes.
Thebes is one of the oldest cities in Greece and has a great and interesting history. According to mythology, its founder is Cadmus, the son of King Phoenix Agenoras, who left Phoenix to find his sister Europe, which Zeus had kidnapped. When he arrived in Greece, he took an oracle from the Delphi oracle, following the first heifer he would meet and at the point where the animal would kneel to build his own city. Indeed, in the hills of the Boeotian Plain was built the heptai Thebes. From Kadros came the genus of Lavadakides, which belonged to Oedipus.
The first monuments that have been found prove that Thebes first inhabited the first season of copper and the inhabitants were probably Kares. The Mycenaean years Thebes was an area very strong economically and militarily. He was kept intact by the Peloponnesian war and did not take part in the war of Troy. In the 8th and 7th centuries, Thebes dominated all the cities of the Boeotian alliance. In 570 BC the Plataeans gained their independence with the help of the Athenians. Thebes, due to the Athenian attitude, favored the Persians when they invaded Greece. After the Battle of Plataea, where the Persians were defeated, the Greek victors besieged Thebes and defeated it. The Thebes then allied with the Spartans, later the Spartans wanted to become the Thebes subordinates to them, there were battles and in the end Thebes with Pelopidas were freed from enslavement and lived great prosperity. In 362 the decline began and the great catastrophe occurred when Alexander captured the Thebes and destroyed it. The city was rebuilt by Kassandros, followed by a decline until the 6th century BC Justinian rebuilt walls to protect Thebes from the invaders. The silk culture helped Thebes, became a shopping center and the textile dyeing industry was developed. In the 9th century, Leo VI the Sophos appointed Thebes the capital of the subject of Greece with the seat of archbishop and general. Centuries later Thebes lived an invasion by the Normans. The Franks followed, the Catalans, and in 1456 Thebes was conquered by the Turks.
Today in Thebes due to the close distance from Athens and the harbor of Halkida has been favored in the establishment of industrial units.
The area has important monuments and archaeological sites: Mycenaean tombs, just outside the city center, the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, the spring of Ag. Theodoroi, known as the Oedipus fountain, since Oedipus washed the traces after the murder of his father, the Dirk Fountain in the Frankish Aqueduct, a monument of the times of the Ottoman domination, the church of Evangelist Loukas, where there is the shrine which was placed pile of the Evangelist. Also Thebes has many churches and monasteries.
