Crete tourist guide

The best Polish website dedicated to the Greek island Crete and to a small extent of continental Greece. You will find useful information related to visiting Crete that goes beyond the offer of optional tours. On the website you will also find descriptions of the most interesting places that we visited by visiting this largest Greek island. The content complements the current news, photographs and recipes of Greek cuisine.

Moni Toplou Winery

Wines of Crete is an extremely interesting initiative, thanks to which it is possible to get to know local Cretan wineries. Being in Crete, it is worth trying to visit one of such places. We would like to invite you to visit the Tasting room at the wine bar belonging to the Moni Toplou monastery.


From the outside, this plant makes an impression of being extremely modern and very neat. Behind a solid wall, a number of several modern buildings have been built, whose aesthetics perfectly fits the Cretan architecture. In the basement of the main building there is the previously mentioned Tasting room, where you will be able to taste one of the three types of wines produced here on site. The tasting of oil is also intended for tasting, which is obtained from olives grown on the surrounding hills.

Tasting room Moni Toplou

It is worth talking with employees who will be happy to tell you about the local products. We have learned, among other things, that only one type of wine (red or white) is stored in barrels at a given moment. For the production of red wines are used fruits of three species of vines. By the way, we would like to thank the employees of the Moni Toplou winery for making photos depicting the interior of this extremely modern facility.

Returning, however, to the topic of wine, we must admit that the red wine Liatiko-Mandilari charmed us the most. Despite the quite high alcohol content, because it reaches over 13%, the wine is very delicate and after cooling it has a pleasant slightly dry taste. After a day of intense sightseeing, it was a perfect complement to the evening supper.


Interestingly, although usually on hot days we are much more likely to reach for pink wines, however, it is the ones produced in Moni Toplo that did not enchant us as much as red wine. Rose Toplou rose wine formed as a mixture of three types of wines, was noticeably more intense in taste and was definitely more dry. However, if you are on the spot, we recommend tasting all available liquors. It's good to get your own opinion and decide to buy the chosen favorite. If we write that prices are affordable and really attractive, it will be hard to say. For a bottle of excellent red wine Liatiko-Mandilari, we paid only 8.5 €. And it is worth adding that exactly the same product sold in Chania cost already more than 20 €.

Rose Toplu - wines of crete

Place outside the trail

Unfortunately, despite the fact that this place is located next to one of the more frequented roads leading to the beach of Vai, it is hard to say that the winery of the monastery of Moni Toplu, enjoyed a special popularity. During our several-dozen-minute visits, we passed here with a couple of other tourists. It's a shame because this unusual place allows you not only to taste local wines, but also to get interesting information related to their production.

How to get

A small signpost directing to this place can be found on many sections of the eastern part of the Nowa Droga Narodowa. The last of them pointing the way directly to the wine cellar is located next to a small parking lot, where buses stopping tourists bringing visitors to Moni Toplou monastery stop. From here, the wine bar is only a few hundred meters away.

If you add this place to your holiday plans, remember, however, that it is only open on weekdays from 9 to 16. It is true that it is also possible to visit at weekends, however, then a telephone confirmation is required.

Faros - lighthouse in Chania

Faros - lighthouse in Chania

The lighthouse in Chania (Faros - Φάρος) was established for six years from 1595. Like many other buildings of this type and fortifications, it was built by the Venetians who ruled then with Crete. Apart from the obvious function of traffic lights, this building was also of strategic importance. Along with the fortress Frikas located on the opposite coast, it created a gate that closed access to the port basin.

In the village of Anissara, near Hersonissos, you can admire the remains of Messerschmitt Bf 109, which, 800 meters from the shoreline, rest on the seabed. It was a relatively small one-seater machine, which was the basic type of fighter aircraft used by the German air force. Today for wreckers, this wreck is one of the biggest attractions that can be enjoyed in the middle of Crete.

gość PiotrWie: Oczywiście że da się przejść w 1 dzień ale po co??? Warto się pokąpać na Domacie i Sedonii, obejrzeć widoki idąc siga-siga. Ale co kto lubi. Cieszę się że poprawili oznaczenia - przy pierwszej próbie naszego przejścia były tylko tyczki co spory kawałek, przy drugiej też pojawiły się w niewielkich ilościach znaki E4. Za trzecim razem były już żółto - czarne oznakowania - był znaczny postęp. (...)
gość Mateus: Hmm ja mam odmienne zdanie, zaznaczę, że nie jestem bardzo doświadczonym górskim turystą, ale amatorsko uprawiający sporty wytrzymałościowe. Trasę Agia Roumelii - Sougia pokonaliśmy 2 razy, w 2014 i 2020, trasa bardzo dobrze oznaczona, problem w sumie mieliśmy tylko przy plaży Domata, za bardzo zakombinowaliśmy i poszliśmy górą zamiast plażą.Trasa pokonana 2 razy z całym bagażem na 2 tyg z namiotem itp. (...)
gość PiotrWie: Jak powiększysz do pełnego ekranu na You Tube to wszystkie są podpisane. Ta akurat to Konnos Beach - pierwsza plaża na zachód od Matali. cały film idzie po kolei od plaży Kokkinos Pirgos na wschód aż do plaży Sidonia - pominięte są tylko te które wymieniłem w pierwszym poście i kilka malutkich plaż dostępnych tylko łodzią.
Gosia | crete.pl : Kommos. Po drugiej stronie widocznej skały jest Matala.
gość joy: Podpowiedzcie proszę jaka to palża na filmie w 1min i 26 s.?
gość PiotrWie: Przejście z Tris Ekklisies do Kalamaki jest spokojne - nie ma tam jakiś dużych trudności, wystarczy zabrać ze sobą matę i najmniejszy możliwy śpiwór ( my używamy 600 gramowych, naprawdę małych po kompresji) i można iść - przez dwa tygodnie siga-siga. (...)
Piotrek | www.crete.pl : Cześć Piotrze, wiedzieliśmy, że kto jak kto, ale Ty na pewno dodasz jakiś komentarz do tego filmu :). My zgodnie razem uznaliśmy z Gosią, że to jest rejon do którego musimy jeszcze wrócić. Między innymi właśnie dla tego spokoju i tych ciekawych miejsc :)
gość PiotrWie: Ponieważ w 2014 spędziliśmy 10 dni w Lentas, w 2015 w Tsoutsouras zwiedzając okoliczne wąwozy i plaże a w 2017 przeszliśmy z Tris Ekklisies do Kalamaki więc byliśmy na każdej z tych plaż a na części z nich spaliśmy. (...)
Grażyna Ada: Wąwozu rewelacja. Miałam przyjemność przejść
gość Pan Paweł: A jak wygląda obecnie sytuacja z maseczkami w Chanii? W sensie, co oznacza " na zewnątrz" ?  Na ulicy, na plaży, w parkach i prywatnych ogródkach też trzeba nosić? I jak to wygląda w praktyce? Jakieś info pewne?
Majkel Dablju: A jak wygląda sytuacja w rejonie Heraklionu? Jakieś podtopienia? Drogi całe (pytam pod kątem zwiedzania potem wyspy autem)?? Za 4 dni wylot (Heraklion), a tu taka historia
Matylda Wacek: Rethymno spokojne ale dzis o 19ej tzn. wczoraj ☺️podobno bylo trzęsienie ziemi. Nic nie odczuliśmy.
Artur Nowak: Na razie w okolicach Chani jest spokój. Jak się zmieni pogoda dam Wam znać

Gosia | crete.pl : Czyli tajemnica wyjaśniona :) Z Grecji można przywieźć mnóstwo dobrych inspiracji kulinarnych. Grecka kuchnia jest obłędnie smaczna choć czasem może nie tak dekoracyjna, ale to wynika z historii poszczególnych miejsc. Jednak aby poznać prawdziwe smaki trzeba odpuścić sobie hotelowe wyżywienie oraz jedzenie w tawernach w miejscowościach turystycznych. My uważamy że w takich miejscach po prostu nie ma prawdziwej greckiej kuchni. (...)
gość Lockys: Zastanawiałem się od pewnego czasu skąd pojawił się ten jakże prosty i pyszny przepis w naszym domu rodzinnym, który mama uskutecznia od kilku lat. Zachęcony artykułem podpytałem i eureka! Po wczasach na Santorini rodzice zakochali się w lokalnej greckiej kuchni i stąd właśnie na stole często gościły te pyszne placuszki z cukinią. (...)
Dana Gołowacz: Uwielbiam
gość PiotrWie: Wyjazd samodzielny według mnie jest jedyną słuszną opcją. Jak ominiesz trzy główne hotelowiska - Hersoniss- Malię, Georgiopoulis i Platanias- Aghia Marina oraz najbliższe okolice dużych miast to będzie pusto na plażach. Ceny są jak w zeszłym roku - nie zauważyłem żeby ktoś podniósł, raczej odnosimy wrażenie niewielkiego spadku. (...)
Dorota Kuśmirek: Marcin Kuśmirek !
Agnieszka Jankowska: Halkidiki jednak się pisze?
gość PiotrWie: Jest super. Pogoda trochę nudna - pod 30 w dzień, 20 w nocy, spać się da tylko pod prześcieradłem, w górach na szlaku przez cały dzień spotykasz kilka osób, w morzu woda ciepła, na plaży niewiele osób - proszę o taką "karę" przez cały rok
Robert Materatz: Dzisiaj na śniadanie żona zrobiła z fetą.Petarda
gość Grek:  "Da się wytrzymać" " Nie jest źle" Czy Wy jesteście tam za karę...?
Artur Nowak: Jestem na miejscu. Nie jest źle. Kontrola na lotnisku to taka Grecka ściema. Pozdrawiam
