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. 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.
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.
