Povijesna znamenitost
“Fortezza castle was build by the Venetians in the 16th century, and was captured by the Ottomans in 1646. There are great views over the sea and the city. There are mosques, art exhibitions and a small ancient style theater. My advice is to avoid the heat and go early in the evening (note that it closes at 19.30 or 20.00). Also note that during the summer concerts may take place which means that you may not get the chance to see the theater if it is not early enough.”

“Think about the old Venetian harbour of Chania as the gemstone on the most priceless jewel of western Crete, called old town of Chania. It will amaze you whenever you visit it. The quay is the busiest part of the old town of Chania, filled with cafes, restaurants, bars, bakeries and other shops. However, the old Venetian harbour of Chania would have been just like another beautiful seaside tourist place, if there haven't been preserved its monuments since the Venetian rule period (1252-1645), the Ottoman rule (1645-1898 ), and the years of the Egyptian domination (1831-1841) that occurred during the Turkish period.”

Lake
“Lake Kournas is the only freshwater lake in Crete. Lake Kurna in ancient times was known as Korissia, but later took its present name from the Arabic word for lake. It is in a very beautiful location, in a pit between the hills, about 4km from Georgioupolis in the prefecture of Chania (western Crete). Lake Kournas is relatively small with a maximum length of 1087 meters and a maximum width of 880 meters. It covers an area of ​​579 hectares and is generally shallow with a depth of 22.5 meters and is about 20 meters higher than the sea. Lake Kournas is an ideal destination for an afternoon stroll, or a day trip. Many also prefer it for an afternoon picnic. The scenery is relaxing and beautiful, whether you want to walk in the nature, swim or bike in the lake. At Lake Kournas there are two springs on the South East Coast, one of which is visible at the end of summer, the Eye or the Amati, as the locals call it. The lake is fed by the waters coming down from the neighboring mountains and hills, which cut off the rocks of the area and prevent them from continuing their course to the sea.”

Beach
“Preveli beach Some of Crete's most beautiful beaches are located on the far south coast that extends to the Libyan Sea. Hidden beneath the Preveli Monastery, this beautiful beach is at the mouth of a river and is backed by a lush palm forest. If you walk through the canyon you will find a small waterfall. To get to the beach you will need to leave your car and go downhill (relatively easy) for about 20 minutes. The palm trees were seriously damaged by the fire in 2010, but have since been naturally regenerated.”
