Crete - the latest news

It snowed again

This time, due to the weather front aptly named Elpida (Ελπίδα, meaning hope), it became white in various regions of Greece. Most of the area of Crete, part of the Aegean islands and the northern Dodecanese, eastern central Greece are covered with snow. The inhabitants of Attica and the island of Evia also received warnings. Even the people of Mykonos this morning rubbed their eyes in amazement, because it also sprinkled snow here. Locals say that the last time such amount of snow fell on the Cyclades decades ago. Apart from snow, Elpida brought low temperatures for Greece and strong winds. Such a weather compilation was synonymous with a whole series of difficulties.

Hot Rakomelo - the best for warming up

What can you warm up properly, especially on such winter days as the last time? During the meeting with "our" Cretans, we offered them various Polish specialties served in winter as a warm-up. Unfortunately, none of them won Cretan hearts. Mulled wine was associated with Polish borscht and according to them it was a strange idea to heat wine, mulled beer seemed an even stranger idea. Mead scored the most points (you know! Meli, i.e. honey in Crete is the basic product).

So what is the Cretan way to warm up? It's a hot rakomelo. Rakomelo is a drink from Crete, which is a combination of raki and honey. Probably some people met with him during vacation trips. However, if you had the opportunity to try them in the summer, it was probably served cold. Hot Rakomelo is a typical winter version, served for warming up and for colds. Even a small portion of this hot alcohol will warm even the most frostbite.

To prepare a hot rakomelo we need: 100 ml of crayfish, about 35 grams of honey (preferably Cretan), 1-2 cinnamon sticks and 3-4 cloves. Heat the crayfish with cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan, add honey and leave it on low heat for about 5 minutes. During this time, the drink should be thoroughly mixed to dissolve the honey. Before serving, you can remove cinnamon and cloves so that they do not interfere with tasting. Drink while it's hot!

Serpentine between Kallikratis and Kapsodasos

The south coast of Crete is known for its exceptionally beautiful roads. There is one among them, which, however, aspires to be one of the most dangerous and demanding roads in Greece. It is a picturesque serpentine linking the villages of Kallikratis and Kapsodasos in Sfakia.

Crete one of the most popular destinations in the world in 2022

Trip Advisor is a popular travel website that publishes the so-called Travelers' Choice - rankings of the most popular tourist destinations this year. In the latest ranking for 2022, Crete took the high 5th place in the category of 25 popular world destinations. Compared to last year's ranking, it means "promotion" from position 7, which shows that Crete, after last year's slightly weaker result, is again becoming one of the most important travel choices and thus a destination for tourists' dream vacation all over the world.

Winter attractions of the Cretans

On Thursday, we wrote about the deteriorating weather in Crete, for which the Diomidis front is responsible. Snowfall in the higher parts of the island caused considerable difficulties. Only this morning, the road connecting Imbros with the high-lying villages of Kallikratis and Asfendou has been opened. The road has been impassable for the last two days due to the large amount of snow.

Closing of the Market Hall in Chania

Agora, or the Market Hall in Chania, is a cult place. It was here that you could buy traditional unique products that are usually not found in ordinary supermarkets. To be in Chania and not to go shopping in Hala Targowa is a big oversight. Unfortunately, however, in the next two years, Hala Targowa will be closed. After 109 years of uninterrupted operation, it is finally time to carry out a major overhaul of this facility. This week, a contract for the redevelopment was to be signed, and the renovation contractor, Tomi Avete, is to enter the building soon.

Diomidis spoils the weather in Crete

For several dozen hours, Crete has been under the influence of Diomidis - an atmospheric front that brought extremely bad weather. The gusty wind that accompanies this weather breakdown reached the strength of even 9 on the Beaufort scale. Such bad weather immobilized ships in harbors. Fortunately, however, the situation is soon to improve so that it will be possible to restore regular shipping between Crete and the port of Piraeus.

Yesterday's media circulated photos and film reports from Rethymno, where the sea was breaking into the land near the local port. It is true that this is not an unusual situation, because with rainfall and strong winds it repeats itself every year. Nevertheless, for safety reasons, the streets in the vicinity of the port have been closed to cars.

Skiing in Crete?

Crete is an island that is primarily associated with holiday trips. It is also quite popular among supporters of spring or autumn holidays, who can also enjoy good weather at the same time paying less than tourists who come here during high season. However, in winter, the island literally closes to tourist traffic. Most hotels are freezing, and airlines are suspending charter flights. The island can only be reached by ferry or plane from Athens. Perhaps, however, there will be a shift in the topic of using the island's potential in winter.

Yyyy, żaden alko na ciepło
Przywiozłem w tym roku Raki z Kritsy polecone przez Ewę. I cynamon. Miód mam swój. Robiłem rakomelo do buteleczek. Wszyscy zachwyceni. Próbowałem robić na wódce, ale to nie to samo. Teraz mam nastawione na mieszance wódki i dobrej whisky. Zobaczymy czy uda mi się zbliżyć do smaku z Raki
Rakomelo
Przejechaliśmy dwa razy. Nagrałam całą trasę na pamiątkę :)
Faktycznie te drogi są spektakularne, ale ja je uwielbiam. Nasz kierowca ostatnio nawet wykręcał na takiej drodze, bo musiał wjechać w drogę która prowadziła do tyłu. Żeby w nią wjechał musiał wykonać taki manewr. To był majstersztyk. Ale to b. dobrzy kierowcy.
Zdziwiły mnie najbardziej ławeczki przy drodze. Kierowcom raczej nie potrzeba a ciekawe ilu pieszych tam spaceruje?
Jechałem. Na szczęście pod górę. Nigdy więcej.
Niezła traska, proponuję przejechać się również serpentynkami z Xerocampos do Ziros.
Ihana reitti monta kertaa menty mutta aina vain yhtä vaikuttava
Jechałem w górę i w dół wrażenia niezapomniane
Niezapomniane ❤️
najlepiej sie na niej sprawdza citroen c3.
Przestańcie już epatować tą Chanią!!! Co to za dowolność w odmianie nazw własnych. To jest liczba mnoga, akcent na ostatnie a, τα Χανιά. A zatem w Chani'a lub w miejscowości Chani'a.
Nie dziwię się
kurcze a ja jadę w sierpniu
O cię panie!
Gosia | crete.pl : Jeśli planujesz dojazd autobusem to najpierw będziesz musiała dojechać na dworzec w Chanii i tam przesiąść się w autobus jadący do Xyloskalo na płaskowyżu Omalos. Później po przejściu wąwozu wsiadasz na prom płynący do Paleochory, a następnie w Paleochorze wsiadasz w autobus jadący w kierunku Chanii i wysiadasz w Tavronitis, które sąsiaduje z Rapanianą. (...)
gość Aga: A podpowiedzcie jak najlepiej dostać się do wąwozu z miejscowości Rapaniana? Czy znacie polskie biura z wycieczkami żeby wykupić inne wycieczki. Pozdrawiam Aga
A tyle przepiękności pysznych było do kupienia .....mniam mniam
