Pogonianí (Greek: Πωγωνιανή, pronounced [poɣoɲaˈni]) is a village and a former community in the Ioannina peripheral unit, Epirus, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Pogoni, of which it is a municipal unit.[1] It is best known in Greece as the birthplace of the current President of the Hellenic Republic, Karolos Papoulias. The former name of the village was Vostina.[2]

The municipal unit consists of 4 villages: Pogoniani, Dolo, Drymades, Stavroskiadi. During the period prior to the First World War the British member of the International Commission that was responsible of the delineation of the Greek-Albanian border noticed that the villages that were ceded to Albania, which consist of the northern portion of Pogoniani are entirely Greek-speaking.[3]
