The regional district of Kos(Greek Περιφερειακή Ενότητα Κω

Enótita Ko) is one of 13 regional districts of the South Aegean region of Greece. It was formed on the occasion of the 2010 administrative reform from four island municipalities of the former Dodecanese prefecture and corresponds exactly to the territory of the former province of Kos, which existed until 1997. Proportionate to its 34,396 inhabitants, the area sends six deputies to the regional council, but has no further political significance as a territorial entity. Today it is divided into the two municipalities of Kos and Nisyros.
