78th anniversary of the Battle of Crete

As tomorrow is the 78th anniversary of the Battle of Crete, we would like to remind you of the history of these events that began on May 20, 1941. This operation was codenamed Merkury (German Unternehmen Merkur) and its aim was to master Crete by the German airborne troops. From the very beginning civilians who actively supported the Allied forces took active part in the defense activities. Unfortunately, after eleven days of heavy fighting, the whole island was under the control of German troops, and the Cretans experienced terrible repressions.

Approval of airport contracts in Kastelli and privatization of Sitia airport

Today we have for you a handful of airline news related to Crete airports. At the beginning it is worth mentioning that the procedures related to the ratification of the contract for the construction of the airport in Kastelli entered the final stage. In the middle of last week, the concession for this investment was approved by the local Parliamentary Commission for Production and Trade. Currently, Greek MPs are debating the draft act of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, which will be the final document approving this investment.

Agios Nikolaos on the drone film

Agios Nikolaos is a picturesque city of 11,000 inhabitants located in the Lassithi prefecture. One of the most recognizable places in this city is "bottomless" as it was believed to be the Voulismeni lake and the marina, which for many years has been receiving the Blue Flag award for many years. Even if you have spent your holidays here and walked through most of the streets of Agios Nikolaos, you will certainly look forward to seeing the city from above. We invite you today to watch the movie filmed from the drone, from this perspective Agios is even more charming.

Conflict of interest in the Old Town of Chania

The area of the Old Town of Chania is one of the more buzzing areas of this city. Every year in the high season, this place attracts thousands of tourists who use local taverns, shops and other attractions. For many years in the area of the Old Town there are also many hotels and guesthouses offering accommodation in the facilities located in this very picturesque part of the city. Such a diversified number of economic activities focused on a relatively small area leads to a conflict of interest. Although the current tourist season has not yet started for good, the first complaints about disturbing the silence of the night are directed to the local authorities.

Opening of the full route leading through Samaria

In the end, we can give you good information about the opening of the entire trail leading through the Samaria Gorge . Authorities of the National Park today reported that the official opening of the Xyloskalo - Agia Roumeli route will take place tomorrow, 10 May at 7.30 . Although these were preliminary assumptions, it was not certain until the very end that this deadline would be met. All the time, repair work was taking place in the ravine, which hindered the weather.

Iron gates of Samaria

In spite of tomorrow's inauguration, the management of the Forest District of Chania, however, warns that if the weather conditions deteriorate, the trail may be temporarily closed. So if you are currently in Crete and you plan to go to Samaria, we suggest that you keep track of the availability of the route. We will also keep you informed about any changes.

Piotr Iwańczyk: Taka ciekawostka związana z bitwą. Podczas tej batalii miała miejsce niemiecka wersja "Szeregowca Ryan'a". Jednego dnia - 21 maja 1941 - zginęło trzech braci z hrabiowskiego rodu von Blücher. Wolfgang, Leberecht i Hans-Joachim Graf von Blücher.
Kazimierz Maciąg: Kampery też mają swój box
Tomasz Zawitowski: Ile kosztuje prom na Santorini?
Ewa Szumowska: My z Heraklionu płynęliśmy na Santorini katamaranem Wrc
Joanna Tissaoui: Magdalena Chludzińska czy myślisz, że gdyby uruchomiło ten kurs w zeszłym roku, to byśmy jeszcze gdzieś zmieściły Rethymno?
Anna Evelyn: Czekamy na lotnisko w Ierapetra ;
gość marziar: W zeszłym tygodniu byłem na Krecie i przeszedłem cały wąwóz 11 maja , drugi dzień po otwarciu. Cały szlak jestem bardzo dobrym stanie i wygląda rewelacyjnie o tej porze roku. Dojechałem busem z Chani 7.45, wracałem promem 17.30 do chora sfakion i na koniec busem do Chani.

gość PiotrWie: Jesli chodzi o GPS używam od lat aplikacji w telefonach - poprzednio Oudoor Navigation for windows, obecnie z powodu odmowy współpracy przez moją stara Nokię przeszedłem na Locus Map - mapa Grecji w tej aplikacji jest dość dokładna. Poza tym używam Avenza Map - o tym napisze poniżej. (...)
Piotrek | www.crete.pl : Piotr dzięki za uwagi, którymi uzupełniłeś artykuł Gosi (ja akurat przy niem niewiele zrobiłem :). Przy okazji mam do Ciebie pytanie odnośnie korzystania z GPS. Jako osoba doświadczona w tej kwestii na pewno będziesz lepiej wiedział. Jakim sprzętem lub oprogramowaniem warto ewentualnie zainteresować się w kwestii wyjazdu na Kretę i ewentualnego wykorzystania tras zarejestrowanych przez innych użytkowników?
Marta Domagała: Bardzo ważne jest dobrze dobrane obuwie. Doświadczyłam tego osobiście, moje buty nie nadawały się do pokonywania olbrzymich głazów , i musiałam część z nich pokonywać na bosaka.
gość PiotrWie: Jako osoba chodząca od lat po górach Krety - dodam do tego co pisał Piotr zdecydowaną sugestię używania trasera - szlaki są znakowane z "polskiego" punktu widzenia fatalnie - wiem co mówię bo zanim zacząłem jeździć na Kretę schodziłem góry Polski, Czech, Słowacji, bywałem w Alpach, poza tym jestem przewodnikiem sudeckim a dopóki nie zacząłem używać trasera GPS zdarzało nam się wielokrotnie gubić szlak - niestety ...
