The Crete region
Crete is an island with an exquisite 1,000 kilometer-long coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. After all, it's among the finest in the world and has established Crete as one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. And, of course, the island's historic importance in today's world as the home of the Minoan civilization with important archeological finds at Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys, is evidenced by the tens of thousands of visitors to these sites each year.
Chania, one of the most beautiful towns on the island, is the capital of the western most Chanion district and hosts one of the international airports of the island. In fact, this historic town of 53,000 inhabitants used to be the capital of Crete in living memory, but has now relinquished the part to Heraklion.
The ancient town of Kydonia had been inhabited since Neolithic times and saw prosperity and decline in succession several times in its long history. It flourished mostly under Venetian rule, when it acquired its modern name Chania and was often referred to as 'Venice of the East', a glory now reflected in the inner harbour, Venetian lighthouse, arsenals and castle. While in town, enjoy walking through the historic quarters and along the waterfront, and take a look at the domed Mosque of the Jannissaries. Visit the Archaeological Museum to see a great number of artefacts from sites all over the island, and the Naval Museum if you are interested in model ships and the role of Cretan fighters and the Allies in World War II. The Chanion region combines exquisite natural beauty with historical sites. It is famously rugged and mountainous in the south and centre, as most of it is taken up by the massive Lefka Ori (White Mounts), but still allows the visitor to travel to spectacular sandy beaches in the South West (Elafonissos), West (Falasarna) and all along the northern coast. This walkers' paradise includes at least two walkable gorges slashing through the mountains (Imbros and Samaria), and possibly affords you the only chance to cross stone arched bridges over dry land (the only safe time to cross gorges which double as winter torrent beds is when they are dry!)
