Interesting villages in Rethymno Prefecture

There are plenty of villages in Crete. Just look at the map of the island to find out about it. Some of them are ordinary, unremarkable places. Some are traditional while others are more contemporary. The smaller ones, full of narrow streets and nooks and crannies, and the larger ones, where the buildings are more modern. However, there are several places in the Rethymno area that are worth paying special attention to. Therefore, the next part of the guide to interesting places in Rethymno Prefecture is devoted to villages that stand out with something special. Our list, as usual, is subjective and does not exhaust the topic, but we leave room for your own discoveries.

Crete 1821-1898 - exhibition in Heraklion

Tonight at 7:00 p.m. in St. Mark in Heraklion, the exhibition Crete 1821-1898: On the Roads of Revolution, prepared by the Municipality of Heraklion, will open. This exhibition was organized as part of the 200th anniversary of the National Uprising. It alludes to three bloody revolutions that took place in 1821, 1866 and 1897 and were designed to regain independence and throw off the Turkish yoke. The exhibition presents documents and memorabilia both from private collections and from the collections of the National Historical Museum in Athens.

The exhibition will last until December 18, 2021. It can be viewed from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and in the afternoons between 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The only exception are Saturdays, when the opening hours are limited to the morning hours between 9:00 and 14:00.

Samaria is open until the end of October, unless ...

As every year, the date of the final closure of the Samaria Gorge is mobile, because it is strictly dependent on the current weather. Today a decision was made that this year the Samaria Gorge will be open until October 31, 2021. This is certainly very good information for tourists who have planned their stay in Crete during this time period. However, the Chania Forest Directorate warns that if the weather conditions change so much that there is a problem with the smooth passage of the gorge, the gorge will be closed. Therefore, there is nothing else but to wish the best weather to all visitors of Crete now.

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.

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 :)
