Exploring Crete

28.07.2016 — by VD

Crete is one of the most beautiful, romantic and mysterious islands you should probably visit. But do you know a lot about the culture of Greece and do you have any plan about time spending ? Make sure you are ready to explore new areas!

The second half of July and it is Crete – the best place to have some rest at. Crete is really exotic, romantic and beautiful. Every tree looks like a painting and the water is light blue so you never want to leave the beach. You can take a little car and travel by yourself, but for some special guests, who never have much motivation for traveling by themselves, you can book a little tour and visit nearest islands. There are some special places on Crete such as Spinalonga.

-officially known as Kalydon (Καλυδών), is located in the Gulf of Elounda in north-eastern Crete, in Lasithi, next to the town of Plaka. The island is further assigned to the area of Kalydon. It is near the Spinalonga peninsula (“large Spinalonga”) – which often causes confusion as the same name is used for both. The official Greek name of the island today is Kalydon.

But never forget to take water and skin protection oil. The sun is too bright and violent during the day time.IMG_0043 IMG_0075 IMG_0091 The nature is really inspirational. You can discover amazing stone structures which could become prints! The buildings are old, they are hiding a lot of secrets inside.

It is better to get there early morning so at 3 pm. you are going to be filled with positive emotions and happiness! Aqua park has the best paying system – you wear a special bracelet with unique code and pay using online cash. On the way back home you take off the bracelet and have a final bill.IMG_0112 IMG_0134 IMG_8513 IMG_8518 IMG_8694 IMG_8729

Crete has a huge history and every little detail which is the part of big story is exciting. From ancient Greece to modern – too many things to study while you are there!IMG_9698
