Armeni cemetery

In Armeni, in the shadow of olive groves and oaks, the entrances to about 200 tombs from the Minoan era are hidden. Archaeologists found here about 500 skeletons, which turned out to be very valuable, because on their basis you could learn more about people living in the Minoan times, their daily diet and health. Detailed research revealed that the Minoans buried here lived quite short: 31 years old men and 28 years old women.

153rd anniversary of the tragic events at the Moni Arkadiou monastery

Today is the 153rd anniversary of the tragic events that took place in the monastery of Moni Arkadiou. This place is of special importance to Cretans. The tragically ended fight made this beautiful place a symbol of the fight for freedom and an expression of rebellion against the Turkish occupation.

Moni Arkadiou

If you visited Moni Arkadiou, you certainly remember the remains of the powder magazine and the remains of the victims. On November 9, 1866, Turkish artillery destroyed the entrance gate to the monastery and enabled Suleiman's army to enter its courtyard. The Cretans defending themselves were pushed into rooms where gunpowder was stored. The insurgents, wanting to avoid surrendering to the Ottoman army, set fire to the barrels of gunpowder, leading to a great explosion, which killed most of the Cretans in the monastery.

Aerial walk over Agios Nikolaos

Today we would like to invite you for an aerial walk over Agios Nikolaos . This town is located in the eastern part of Crete and is very often visited by tourists. This should not come as a surprise, because the location next to the picturesque Mirambelo bay gives it a lot of charm. The dense network of streets encourages walking and exploring the photogenic alleys of this city. The advantage of Agios Nikolaos is also a lot of excellent taverns in which you can recharge your batteries for further exploring Crete.

Summary of the 2019 tourist season in Crete

Although this year's season has broken the streak of strong growth that has been recorded so far in the Greek tourism industry, the prophecies that promised significant decreases in the number of tourists vacationing in Greece and Crete did not come true either. From April 1 to the end of October, only slightly more than 0.5 percent decrease in the number of foreign passengers was recorded at Heraklion airport. Thus, it means that in the 2019 tourist season, the number of guests relaxing in this region of Crete was lower by about 40 thousand. people.
