  • Hersonissos

    Hersonissos
    I have written so many Lomolocation stories about Crete island, that I can feel like living there - it clearly became my second home after only a 7-days relaxing holidays. But wait - I have told you so many interesting places to see, but forgot to mention the best possible place to live in this island. That's why I have prepared this story about a little town of Hersonissos.
  • Aghios Nikolaos

    Aghios Nikolaos
    Need a vacation? Take it, but be careful - if you plan to take a rest at home, you can receive a call from your boss at any moment "please, can you come just for 15 minutes, we need your help". So the best plan is to go somewhere really far away, for example - the Crete Island. And if you really plan to go there for your vacation, choose Aghios Nikolaos town, as it is THE BEST resort town in whole Crete (well, at least you can hear that at your tourist information office). And it really is awesome. First of all, Aghios Nikolaos is a coastal town and the capital of Lasithi province (Crete Island is divided into 4 or 5 prefectures). The most amazing fact is that the town is built on the ruins of the ancient city. People call it Saint Nicholas town because Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors and of all of Greece.
  • Spinalonga Island

    Spinalonga Island
    Spinalonga is a Spinalonga island - tiny dot of land and Cretan sea guarder! It's an island situated in the Bay of Elounda. The history of the name 'Spinalonga' is in itself subject to conjecture but it is widely accepted that its roots lie somewhere in the Olous, Olondi, Elounda location and the words meaning long and thorn. Spinalonga is actually the name of the sizeable but slender peninsula and on maps the small island is identifiable by the name Kalidon.
