Cities on the island of Crete

Sitia

Sitia

Sitia is the city that has the most "naj" in its sleeve ;-) It is the smallest city of Crete, the easternmost, with the quietest atmosphere and although it is the least developed compared to other Cretan cities, it's its residents are the most warm visitors. Less than 10,000 population of Sitia makes the city the smallest in Crete. Some even go a step further and say perversely that it is rather the largest village of Crete.

Ierapetra - the hottest city of Crete

Ierapetra - the hottest city of Crete

Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) is the fourth largest city of Crete and also the largest town located in the Lassithi prefecture. It is located on the south-eastern coast of the island, in the place of its characteristic narrowing.

In 2011, it was only about 16 thousand inhabitants.

Elounda

Redirected from the side - Olous - ancient Elounda. Although Elounda seems to be a sleepy fishing town to this day, however, appearances should not fool you, because this town and its surroundings can boast of probably the largest number of hotels with the highest standards of service. Beautiful landscape and an amazing view of the Mirambello bay is the reason why Elounda was so quickly and greedily absorbed by modern mass tourism. In luxurious SPA resorts, the most famous guests from Greece and around the world spend their holidays. It was in this place that Lady Gaga rested,

gość PiotrWie: Jeśli ktoś będzie w najbliższym czasie w Fragokastello to polecam widok sprzed cmentarza - jest to jedno z nielicznych miejsc skąd widać naraz oba pasma pokryte śniegiem - Góry Białe i Idajskie. My podziwialiśmy w kwietniu 2017 - ale w tym roku jest więcej śniegu.
Ewa Szumowska: A moj mąż jak byliśmy na majówkę kłócił się ze mną ze to nie śnieg

Aneta Zając: Tak jest, załączam fantastyczny widok z Kawros Beach z dnia 14.05.2019
Piotrek | www.crete.pl : Tak jak pisał Piotr myślę, że droga ta nie powinna być jakoś szczególnie trudna do przejechania. Faktycznie patrząc na zdjęcia satelitarne ciężko jest ocenić rodzaj nawierzchni, ale wydaje mi się, że w znacznej części będzie to asfalt. Widać to między innymi na zdjęciach wrzuconych przez innych użytkowników:https://goo.gl/maps/TxYT3oSco7Ky6Y797
gość PiotrWie: Jako człowiek niedzisiejszy skorzystałem z mapy papierowej - Crete 401 wydawnictwa Road. Odcinek pomiędzy Livadią a Agios Pantaleimon jest oznaczony jako "main dirt road" - więc przy spokojnej jeździe powinien być do przejechania zwykłym samochodem. Pozostałe sa asfaltowe.
gość Robokow: Witam serdecznie, Wkrótce jadę po raz drugi na Kretę i zamierzam udać się na południe autem z Meleme, przez Kissamos, Sfinari, Livadi, Ubini Beach, Ayios Padleimon do Elafonisi. Co sądzicie o tej trasie - jest możliwa do pokonania autem typu np. Fiat Doblo? Zwłaszcza po niedawnych powodziach. Trudno z satelity wywnioskować, czy to drogi utwardzone, czy szutry. (...)
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.
Justyna Zelmanowska: Balos jest piękna i Elafonisi trzeba zobaczyć będąc na Krecie
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.
Dana Gołowacz: z jednej strony większa przepustowość,a z drugiej....zaorają :(
Joanna Walkiewicz: byłam, cudnie
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. (...)
