      The island of Crete is one of the most beautiful Greek islands. The history of the island dates back to around 3000 BC when the Minoan civilization flourished here. Much, much, much later the Venice republic conquered the island.

      Ruins of the this period are


      scattered throughout the island. The main city is the capital - Heraklion.

      The second-biggest city is Hania. Crete has two main symbols - the goats “kri-kri”, which live there and the Minotaur - a fictional half man-half bull hero from the Ancient Greek mythology.

      ...


      • Houses everywhere in the island are white and covered with flowers. Everything is calm and settled.

        Crete could be the perfect place for a romantic holiday or a honeymoon. Houses in Old Hania are situated along the harbor.

        Streets are narrow, often there’s hardly place

        for two. Cafes are always crowded, drinking coffee and fresh orange juice seems to be one of the favourite pastime of the locals.

        We have visited Crete twice. First time we were fascinated, second time we fell in love with the island.

        I highly recommend it.
