Boeotia ( ; -Voiotía, also Viotía) is one of the prefectures of Greece. It is within the Central Greece periphery, and its area was known in ancient times. Its capital is Livadeiamarker, the second largest city being Thebesmarker, and the area has access to the island of Euboeamarker via two bridges : one that runs through Chalcismarker, and another bypassing it with a further road via Athensmarker. Its bounding prefectures are Phocismarker in the west, Phthiotismarker to the north and northwest, Euboea in the east via a bay and a gulf, and Atticamarker to the south.

It has two lakes located in the northeast; one, in 2002, revealed a lost village.

Geography

Its geography includes part of the Parnithamarker ranges in the southwest , with a huge mining area in the southeast and mountains in the south, including Heliconmarker ; more cover the west, including mount Parnassus, where the prefecture's only ski resort is located ; and more again in the north, with a few forests and hills in the east. Its longest river, the Cephissus, lies in the central part, where most of the low-lying areas of Boeotia are to be found. Two lakes lie to the northeast, and have been considered a wetland.

Climate

Its climate ranges from hot summers to mild-to-cool winters, while the northern and eastern part are often more likely to experience cloud during the later part of the day. Stronger winter conditions are very common in areas higher than 1,000 m, and summer here is a little cooler than in the low-lying areas.
