Monasteries in Crete

Moni Kapsa

Moni Kapsa

Moni Kapsa Monastery is one of the most interesting monasteries in Crete. Its massive buildings were erected on rocky, gray slopes surrounding the nearby Pervolakia Gorge. From a distance, it looks as if the monastery buildings were literally growing out of steep rocks.

Monastery of Odigitrias

Monastery of Odigitrias

The Odigitrias Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of southern Crete. Unfortunately, in terms of popularity, he is far from other Cretan monasteries so often visited by tourists. Located a bit away from popular tourist routes, it attracts only those who relax near Matala.

Agia Triada Monastery Tsangarolon was founded in 1634 on the site of a former small monastery dedicated to the Holy Apostles.

Moni Katholiko is probably the oldest and most spectacular monastery in Crete. It is located 20 km north-east of Chania, on the Akrotiri peninsula near the exit of the Avlaki ravine. You can walk to Moni Katholiko only on foot because the road for cars ends at the parking lot near the Gouverneto monastery.

Complete history of the Preveli monastery (Turkish occupation)

Complete history of the Preveli monastery (Turkish occupation)

During the Turkish occupation, which began in 1649, the Preveli monastery, like many other such places, was destroyed. Later, it was rebuilt and once again was one of the most important monasteries in Crete, strongly affecting the local community of Sfakia residents. During this period, Preveli was also an important center of resistance to the Turkish occupation.

Adam Wyspiański : Czy szybkie testy antygenowe wykonywane na lotnisku we Wrocławiu będą respektowane przez Grecję w Chanii???? Czy ktoś w najbliższym czasie będzie leciał z Wrocławia do Chanii i będzie wykonywał taki test antygenowy.. Proszę o informację.. Ja lecę 28 czerwca.. Nie wiem czy robić test w laboratorium na mieście, czy na lotnisku, i czy on będzie uznany w Grecji...
Czyli szczepienie , pcr lub antygenowy ? Te antygenowe się na lotnisku robi czy jak to wygląda ?
12 lat skończone czy 12 lat kalendarzowe?
a ja już zgłupiałam totalnie na stronie tui najpierw podali, że rapid test na 48h, teraz , że na 24h przed. czyli dziecko 8 letnie oficjalnie nie musi mieć testu przed lotem do GR?
A test z biedronki ??? ;-p
Chorwacja, Cypr i teraz Hiszpania dopuszczają dla m.in. Polski wjazd bez żadnych testów a Grecy ... wprowadzają możliwość wjazdu z testem antygenowym
Mialam okazje zobaczyc z pokladu promu, wracajac z wawozu Samaria !
Spacerkiem przez plaże do Loutro
Nie wiem skąd bierzecie wiadomości ale mogę wam powiedzieć z pierwszej ręki że większego farmazonu dawno nie czytałem
A my dzisiaj Sitia i Vai ❤️
A jak to wygląda z dziećmi w wieku 12lat
Żyję już na tym świecie trochę i tak sobie kiedyś myślałem, że niewiele rzeczy jest mnie w stanie zaskoczyć. W wielu miejscach byłem, wiele widziałem, sam wiele zrobiłem.. Ale nadszedł 2020 rok i koronaparanoja..
Mums
Ciekawe od kiedy...
Od kiedy miałyby obowiązywać testy antygenowe?
Jak tam dojechać z lyttos beach np.? Jeżdżą tam jakieś autobusy? Ktoś może pomóc :)
Ile kosztuje wypiżyczenie skutera na dzień? Macie może jakies dobre sprawdzone wypożyczalnie?
Adam Wyspiański : Czy ktoś ma wiedzę na temat wyrywkowych testów po przylocie do Chanii i jaki kod QR do nich obliguje w czerwcu??? Czy ktoś już wracał do Wrocławia niezaszczepiony. Czy wystarczy zrobić po wylądowaniu we Wrocławiu test antygenowy??? Jakie są wymagania przy powrocie.. Pozdrawiam.
Gosia | crete.pl : Nie sądzę aby w Samarii w tym roku były tłumy jak w trakcie normalnego sezonu. Prognozy pokazują, że przyjedzie max 40% tego co w 2019 roku, co przełoży się na mniejszą liczbę odwiedzających ten wąwóz. Ale nawet jeśli poziom odwiedzających byłby zbliżony do obłożenia takiego jak w zwykłym sezonie, to na szlaku nie ma problemu z zachowaniem bezpiecznych odległości. (...)
gość PiotrWie: Jak to jest - są tacy co potrafią pięciosetowy mecz siatkarski grać w maseczce a niektórzy duszą się na śmieć jak mają ją założyć na 5 min w sklepie? Czy na pewno reprezentują ten sam gatunek? Jak w Samarii będą w tym roku takie same wściekłe tłumy jak dotychczas to rzeczywiście niestety maski maja sens - nie da się utrzymać odpowiedniego dystansu od innych. (...)
Gosia | crete.pl : Tak, będzie bus. Pierwszy kurs o 7 rano, drugi o 18.15, a w zasadzie po przypłynięciu promu z Agia Roumeli.
