Prefecture

As a part of the 2011 Kallikratis government reform, the former Euboea Prefecture (Greek: Νομός Εύβοιας) was transformed into a regional unit within the Central Greece region, without any change in boundaries. At the same time, the municipalities were reorganised, according to the table below.[1]
