Crete map of the Freytag & Berndt publishing house

Crete map of the Freytag & Berndt publishing house

The Freytag & Berndt map is a classic map on a scale of 1: 150,000, printed on plain good paper. This results in the fact that in terms of physical functionality in comparison with competitors' products it will be very poor. The price for which it is offered, you can buy laminated maps with much longer life and ease of folding.

CRETE - ExpressMap, not exactly comfort! maps

CRETE - ExpressMap, not exactly comfort! maps

Crete - ExpressMap is a double-sided laminated map in the cover. Its dimensions are small: 100 x 48 cm after unfolding, and in the composite form it is only 11 x 24 cm. The plan of Crete was presented in 1: 150,000 scale. In addition, the publisher on both sides also posted the plans of major cities: Heraklion, Rethymnon, Chania, Agios Nikolaos, Ierapetra and Sitia, which are sketched on a scale of 1:10 000. There is also a small plan of islet Gavdos (1: 150,000).

Car map of Crete Terrain publishing house

The Terrain publishing product is a rather compact 1: 200,000 car map sold in a rigid plastic case that will surely perform well in protective functions. It is worth mentioning that the material from which it is made is some artificial material (or paper composite) that is waterproof and very strong. You must use a lot of force to break the map or use some sharp tool. It certainly bodes well when it comes to its lifespan.

Guide to Baedeker - Crete

Guide to Baedeker - Crete

The nearly 300-page Baedeker guide issued by the Pascal publishing house in 2007 (issue 1) is almost an encyclopedic item. Baedeker has 150 years of experience in creating tourist literature and tries to publish his publications tailoring them to the needs of tourists. The guide is very comfortable in many ways and its formula well thought out and refined. The content contained therein is presented in an orderly manner, which makes it easier to find the information sought.

Guide to Crete from the Navigator series

Guide to Crete from the Navigator series

Below we present you a review of this year's publishing news, which came to the bookstore in March 2014. The Navigator Guide from the Navigator series is relatively cheap and will not deplete your portfolio too much. For about PLN 20 you will get a well-published small book that has been printed on thick paper of good quality.

Pocket guide Dumont - Crete

Pocket guide Dumont - Crete

The Dumont booklet from Crete (in Poland printed by PWN) is another very handy pocket publication that is sold at a reasonable price of less than PLN 20. Despite its small size, Klaus Bötig, who is the author of this guide, managed to put quite a lot of interesting information in this position.

Pocket guide RM Kreta from the inside

Pocket guide RM Kreta from the inside

The Discovery Channel guide published by the RM Publishers in 2007 is a 120-page translation of the English collective study. The main author of the texts is Brigitte Seckendorff-Kourgierakis, who, while working on this guide, crossed Crete along the breadth.


Pascal's Guide to Crete, series-around the world-

Pascal's Guide to Crete, series-around the world-

Pascal's Guide to Crete from 2006 (with resumption in 2009) belongs to the series of guides around the world, which are characterized by a small format (24 x 11 cm), a soft spiral binding and a colorful cover with a large, vertical name of the described place. This graphic design makes these guides easily recognized on the shelf in the bookstore. The Crete Guide is a collective study translated from English with 192 pages. The book was printed on glossy, chalk paper, which kept the image quality high.

Books

Book review - Travel spell

Book review - Travel spell

Today, we would like to recommend you a unique book about Crete, whose appearance on the reading market, unfortunately, without much echo. It's a pity, because "The Travel Charm" by Michał Obst Głombiowski is one of the few publications that shows Crete from the kitchen, after the season, after the last tourists leave here. We highly recommend and encourage you to read our review.

Michal Ajvaz - Journey to the south

Michal Ajvaz - Journey to the south

Escaping from the cold of northern Europe, two Czechs meet in a sleepy Loutro and take a peculiar journey into the history of one of them. This is how using the smallest possible number of words you can describe the content of the book Journey to the South. However, it will be a very dry and unjust description, which certainly will not encourage anyone to acquire this position. And in my humble opinion it is worth it. This is a book to which I will come back, and I will certainly be happy to travel to the south again in some time.

Zorba 50 years later - Crete yesterday, today and tomorrow

Zorba 50 years later - Crete yesterday, today and tomorrow

Zorba 50 years later is in many respects a very thoughtful and extraordinary publication, which is very hard to qualify for a specific single category of books. Each time such an unambiguous declaration would be detrimental to the work of Tomasz Zaród. The handy format is definitely closer to the guide than to a typical photo album. On the other hand, the very way of presenting the content and velvet-like Arctic Volume Ivory paper means that you will still have the impression of being in contact with the album while holding this publication in your hands.

Dionisos Sturis - Greece. Bitter oranges

Dionisos Sturis - Greece. Bitter oranges

Anyone who is close to the topic of Greece certainly knows the name of Dionisios Sturis, who for a long time is trying to bring the problems of Ellada residents to the Poles. Many people associate him with the TOK FM radio, where he is a "duty" journalist dealing with the strike of Greece. Certainly not one radio listener wondered how it happened that the Greek speaks so beautifully in Polish and in general how he came to our country. "Bitter oranges" allow to unravel this puzzle and give you a chance to learn many interesting facts from the history of modern Greece. We, for our part, definitely recommend this book ... with the hope that in the future Dionisios Sturis will be tempted to write another equally interesting item.

gość PiotrWie: Teraz już decyzja co do września zapadła - wczoraj kupiliśmy bilety z Krakowa do Salonik i zamówiliśmy noclegi na Samotrace - tak więc w tym roku nie będzie dwóch wyjazdów na Kretę. Zobaczymy jak jest na wyspie na której nie ma wcale hoteli i turystyki zorganizowanej, a indywidualnej jest niewiele.
gość PiotrWie: My też od czasu gdy tanie linie lotnicze zaczęły latać z polski na południe przestawiliśmy się wyłącznie na wyjazdy indywidualne - jadę tam gdzie chcę i kiedy chcę. Po raz ostatni z biurem podróży - 2011 r.
Rafał Piotr Matysiak: Dokładnie. Kasa z turystyki zorganizowanej nie trafia do lokalsów a często wręcz nie zostaje w Grecji.
Kasia Judasz: I bardzo dobrze.
Roman Niewidz: Mnie to nie dziwi od lat latam tylko indywidualnie po co płacić pośrednikom z biura ? :)
Joanna Kalicińska-Klimek: Ku Gdańskowi
gość Beata: DO TEGO HOTELU WYBIERAMY SIĘ POD KONIEC KWIETNIA,PROSZĘ O DORADZENIE GDZIE MOŻEMY SIĘ UDAĆ ABY ZOBACZYĆ JAK NAJWIĘCEJ ZA PRZYSTĘPNĄ CENĘ
Andrzej Malik: A my wrzesień.
gość PiotrWie: My jedziemy 19 kwietnia - do 6 maja. We wrześniu planujemy kupić bilet do Aten i prawdopodobnie pojechać na Samotrakę - na Krecie w okresie od czerwca do połowy września zrobiło sie dla nas za tłoczno - nawet na południu nie da się znaleźć pustych plaż.
Zofia Sokołowska: W czerwcu. Po raz 9.
Kayarzuna Nowak: My wracamy w czerwcu
Ola Krzyska: Stavros robił filiżanki do mojej kawiarni. Mój kawałek Krety w Polsce ❤️
Ola Krzyska: Stavros ❤️
Adam Łoś: Moja dziewczyna w drodze powrotnej znów wybrała Grecję :)
Sylwia Mordecka-Zuch: My bylismy w santa marina beach w agia marina
Różowa Pantera: Wybieram się w sierpniu do giannoulis santa Marina beach resort
Marlena Harezlak: Kreta jest cudowna
Andrew Polansky: Moja zupa na zime to Metaxada he he
Tomasz Kalinowski: Ta zupa to "żelazny" punkt moich wyjazdów na Św. Górę Athos. Za namowa jedynego polskiego mnicha na Św. Górze Athos od kilku lat zawsze staram się zaprowadzić swoja grupę do Karies na tą zupę - jest świetna. Tym bardziej chętnie zrobię ją w kraju.
Robert Much: Karina
Joanna Nawrocka: I juz mam obiad
Piotrek Gęca : Rozumiem Twoje zarzuty wobec Aegean Airlines. No niestety było to mocno "przedsiębiorcze" i mało prokonsumenckie postępowanie. Podobne zarzuty wobec tego przewoźnika ma lokalna społeczność w Chanii. Wycofanie się Ryanaira z tamtejszego lotniska spowodowało zmniejszenie się konkurencji w przewozach regionalnych na trasach Chania - Ateny/Saloniki. (...)
Piotrek Gęca : Powiem Ci, że tego dnia kiedy zamieszczałem Gosi newsa to nawet rozmawialiśmy o Twojej teorii śnieżnych zim na Krecie. I mówiliśmy, że według wyliczeń ta zima powinna być na Krecie śnieżna. Oczywiście, ten jednorazowy opad jeszcze niczego nie wróży, ale może będzie utrzymany ten cykl. No nic zobaczymy jak dalej będzie kształtowała się pogoda. (...)
Beata Kobus: a jak Grecy sa przygotowani do zimy ?
gość PiotrWie: Mi te linie bardzo podpadły w zeszłym roku, gdy natychmiast po odwołaniu rejsu Ryanair z Chanii do Wrocławia okazało się że oferowane jeszcze przed chwila bilety do Warszawy po 110 euro były "pomyłką", zaś prawawdziwa cena to 650 euro/osobę.
