About Crete

Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the thirteen administrative regions of Greece.The capital and the largest city of Crete is Heraklion. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry, and music). Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe.

The proud and hospitable Cretan people are famous for its culture, innovative spirit and nutritional habits. Crete combines mountains and sea, the new alongside with the old and ancient with contemporary history. Itʼs a cultural crossroad due to its strategic geographical position. The island is one of the most popular Greek tourism destinations, featuring a unique landscape diversity – the rugged mountains, the endless beaches and the turquoise seas, the many cities, towns and villages, and stunning countryside.
