Crete - the latest news

Beaches in Istro

Istro, located near Agios Nikolaos, is one of the places we are happy to return to. One of the reasons for our frequent visits is that there are several sandy beaches in the vicinity of this town, perfect for a lazy holiday. Their additional advantage is their location in the depths of small bays, which, together with the surrounding mountains, provide excellent protection against the wind. Of course, the sea most often does not look like in the video below, but usually on these beaches you can count on much smaller waves than in other regions of Crete.

Hail in Crete

Such a hail today caused great damage in Malia, Crete. As announced, the forecasts about the break in the weather have come true. But surely no one expected such extreme hailstones. We can share photos thanks to the kindness of our friends, Weronika and Ewa, who live in Crete.

Samaria is open until the end of October

The very good weather in Crete meant that the Chania Forest District decided to extend the availability of the Samaria National Park until the end of this month. Originally, the entrance to the trail was to be available only until October 16. Of course, if the weather conditions change to such an extent that there are problems with the smooth passage of visitors through the gorge, it will close earlier. However, at the moment, if you are currently in Crete and you want to go this route, it is possible.

Video from the cruise to Chrissi Island

Among all the places worth visiting in Crete, one can distinguish the constant leaders of those that invariably appear at the top of the popularity list every season. For western Crete, it will certainly be beaches such as Elafonisi or the Balos lagoon. In the central part of the island, the island of Spinalonga is very popular, as we wrote about recently. The excavations of the Palace of Knossos are also eagerly visited. Going further east of Crete, the island of Chrissi cannot be overlooked. Cruises to this small piece of land are very popular among tourists vacationing in the vicinity of Ierapetra. What makes this island unique is the cedar forest that covers it, as well as very picturesque beaches covered with golden sand, according to the name of the island (χρυση - gold). Today we would like to share with you a short film made on this island by Giannis Psaroudakis.

At the end, however, we would like to mention that such great popularity among tourists carries a huge burden on the local natural environment. For a long time, scientists have been alarming that due to the large number of people moving around Chrissi, the cedar forest covering the island is endangered. You can read more about it in the article: The endangered cedar forest on the island of Chrissi

Heraklion is one of the most noisy cities of Greece

When choosing a holiday destination, many people take into account various factors. In our opinion, one of the most important criteria is the lack of bothersome noise, i.e. peace. While in smaller towns or those located on the sidelines, noise is not a problem, in larger cities it is a serious inconvenience. A large part of people who had the "unpleasantness" of living in a hotel whose windows overlook the main streets of the city know perfectly well that you leave such holidays very tired. And Greek cities are very specific in this respect.

Extension of restrictions on traveling to Greece and a new map of threats

The Greek Civil Aviation Authority yesterday announced a decision to extend all travel restrictions to Greece until October 25. So, if any of you are going to Greece in the near future, you should remember not only to fill in the PLF form, but also to perform the COVID-19 test. From October 3, people traveling from Poland to Greece are admitted only if they have a negative test result, no later than 72 hours before crossing the Greek border.

Bogdan Ligęza: Wąwoz Samaria, kto nie był, a planuje, to zapraszam na szczegółowy film, co i jak ;) https://youtu.be/UVBXSJUXTNE
Mariola Dudzinska: Cudowne miejsce☺
Barbara Jarzyna: Wąwóz Samaria to niesamowite miejsce, byłam tam parę lat temu we wrześniu i pogoda dopisała! Mam nadzieję jeszcze odwiedzić Wąwóz.
Maria Konieczny: W lipcu będę na Krecie. Czy wtedy są dobre warunki do przejścia wąwozu?
Małgorzata Lipiec: Ja chcę na Kretę

Margo Wa: Kocham Grecję
Monika Ziółek: Sierpień 2020. Najpiekniejsza
Adam Marciniec: Bylem w tym roku. Swietne miejsce szczegolnie przy tak malej liczbie osob na Krecie.
gość Piterek: Miejsce magiczne i zdecydowanie warte odwiedzenia, skłaniające do zadumy, warto zejść że ścieżki biegnącej wokół wyspy i trochę się powspinać. Mimo że każdy wie z czego wyspa jest znana to dopiero wgłębienie się w temat pozwala na inne spojrzenie, a nie tylko "odhaczenie" kolejnej atrakcji. Oprócz książki Hislop jest też nasza warta przeczytania, Szepty z wyspy samotności Magdy Knedler, polecam. (...)
Artur Nowak: Mnie to miejsce zawsze ściska za gardło jak sobie zrobię wizualizację i pomyślę, co czuli Ci Ludzie. Zwiedzałem Spinalongę, jak misterne miejsce w spokoju i szacunku oraz ze smutkiem w sercu. Nawet dziś jak oglądam swoje zdjęcia z tego miejsca, to myślę o cierpieniu tych ludzi. Miejsce magiczne i smutne
Artur Nowak: Mam info z miejsca czyli z samej Krety, sprzed dwóch tygodni. Większość Kreteńczyków mówiło, że on był psychiczny całe życie i przejawiał dewiacje od początku, niestety nikt z tym nic nie robił. Pochodził też z tzw. dobrej rodziny, prawdopodobnie jego ojciec był Popem. tak więc widzimy do czego doprowadza, życie na sznurku i w ciemnocie. to morderstwo, to plama na duszy wszystkich mieszkańców Krety. (...)
Paweł Bodkowski: Mega smutna i przerażająca sytuacja oraz jej finał. Najważniejsze, że sku ....n jest złapany, osądzony i skazany. Serce krwawi jak czyta się nawet pobieżnie szczegóły zbrodni
Katarzyna Marzec: Byłam z początkiem września tego roku... bardzo urocze miejsce
Ewa Skrzypińska: Myślę, że książka Hislop "Wyspa" przyczyniła się również do większego zainteresowana Spinalongą.
Mira Wittke: Fajny rejs z Agios Nicolas, wyspa z tragiczną ale ciekawą historią
Dorota Loboda: Robi wrażenie
Daria Tosta: 
Daria Tosta: Byłam tam!
