Almost everyone relate Crete with the legendary town Knossos where is situated the most famous landmark on the island – the Palace of the Minoans. Although there is no consensus about the function of the palace, your walk along the awesome rooms full of bright murals, statues and potteries will take you back in time. Heraklion – the Crete’s capital – is a magnet for all guests of the island. There you can visit the Archeological museum, the St. Mark’s basilica and the Morosini fountain. If you want to feel the classic atmosphere of the island you should visit the small town Aghios Nikolaos. There you will fall on about 20 small settlements, clustered on the shore of a small lagoon. There is also a picturesque park, an amphitheater and secluded beaches. In the central part of Aghios Nikolaos you will see a small lake called Voulismeni, which is considered to be a place where the Greek goddess Athena bathed.
