Crete - the latest news

An evening walk in Paleochora

Late in the evenings, the streets of Paleochora , sleepy during the day, turn into very noisy and often quite crowded places. After a day spent on the beach or actively exploring the area, tourists will be happy to go to one of the many taverns located in the center of the village. Most places offer delicious homemade food. So it should come as no surprise that Paleochora is a popular destination for Cretans on the northern coast on weekends. This is probably one of the best recommendations confirming that it is worth trying the local cuisine.

Graffiti on the Chania lighthouse

Today's day in Chania started with an unpleasant surprise. Early in the morning, townspeople noticed “graffiti” appearing on the Faros lighthouse. The news about the unattractive nonsense with which the most important monument and visiting card of the city was dubiously adorned spread like wildfire.

Are we all Cretans?

We are used to thinking that Africa is the cradle of mankind, which so far has been confirmed by the oldest traces of human ancestors found. However, everything indicates that this view should be thoroughly verified. Why are we writing about it? Because according to the latest research, older traces of the Homo Sapiens ancestral lines were found in Crete. As if that was not enough, we owe this discovery to Polish scientists.

Destroyed church in Xerokambos

Yesterday we informed you about the earthquake that was experienced by the inhabitants of the eastern tip of Crete. As a result, the small church of Agios Nikoloas in Xerokambos almost completely collapsed. Today you can see it in more detail in a video shot from a drone by Nikos Sarantos.

Eastern Crete was shaken

Just two weeks after the earthquake that destroyed several Cretan villages in the municipality of Heraklion, today it once again shook part of the island, this time its eastern end.
Today's quake recorded at 12:24 PM had a magnitude of 6.3 on the Richter scale. Its epicenter was 23 km southeast of Zakros in Lassithi Prefecture and occurred at a depth of 8.2 km. A dozen or so minutes later another quake was recorded, which was much weaker (4.5 degrees). The main shock was felt on all the Dodecanese islands, mainly Karpathos, Rhodes and Kasos. The people of Cairo and Giza, Egypt, also felt the earthquake today.

Samaria closed tomorrow

[EDIT] Also next Thursday and Friday (October 14-15, 2021) Samaria will remain closed due to unfavorable weather.

Are any of you still in Crete and are planning a trip to the Samaria Gorge? If so, unfortunately we have bad news because tomorrow (October 12, 2021) the gorge will be closed. The Chania Forest Directorate has decided to close the trail as the weather is expected to worsen tomorrow. As a consolation, we have a video recorded in this most famous gorge of Crete.

Car tour number 5 - east of Crete

Today's tour will be useful for people who will be vacationing in the area of Makra Gialos, Analipsi or other places in the area of Ierapetra. They are the perfect starting point for a more detailed exploration of the eastern part of Crete. The route we propose leads through many interesting points, although the distances between them are not too large. For this reason, visiting places in the far east of the island should be combined into a larger whole. The basic condition for completing this tour is to set off early in the morning.

Tour 5

Dikte Cave closed to visitors

Dikte Cave is one of the main tourist attractions of the eastern part of Crete, closely related to the beliefs of the ancient Greeks. They believed that this is where Zeus was born, the most important of the Greek gods, ruler of heaven and earth. However, from September 27, this cave remains inaccessible to tourists. Its temporary closure is related to the strong earthquakes that occurred in this area of the island last Monday. The decision to temporarily close the cave to visitors was taken as a precautionary measure to avoid panic among the visitors in the event of repeated aftershocks.

gość Joanna: Widzieliśmy w tym roku przedziwne odciski w skałach na Balos i plaży Damnoni. Zażartowaliśmy sobie nawet,że to pewnie nasi prehistoryczni przodkowie i zwierzęta (ewidentne odciski łap) a tu się okazuje,że mogliśmy mieć rację
Uwielbiam Kretę, boli gdy się o tym czyta.
A jednak!
Dopiero co tam byliśmy
Właśnie się wybieram. Drugi raz w tym roku, nie wiem który w ogóle. Crete ❤️
gość dodekanezowiec: "Przywykliśmy uważać, że Afryka jest kolebką ludzkości" - a Kreta to taka wyspa między Europą a Afryką. Tak jak Rodos i Kos to już de facto Azja (tym bardziej Cypr). Stąd mnie jakoś ciągnie do tych bardziej południowych wysp niż np. europejskiego Zakynthos :)  
Każdy Grek ci powie, że pierwszy człowiek na ziemi był... Grekiem :)
