The most poetic city of Crete leaves you with a pleasant taste of beauty when you walk through. Built on the ruins of ancient Cydonia has seen and survived many invaders, but has also tasted civilizations and their marks on building faces, castles, walls, antiquities, monasteries and churches

The city has two entrances: the airport of Akrotiri, and the port of Souda (the largest in the Mediterranean). Dominant position in the center holds the municipal market, a brilliant cross-shaped building which was completed in 1913, and in proportion of Marseille.

In walking distance from the center of the city awaits the Public Garden and adjacent to the Park of Peace and Friendship between peoples. The gardens are the prettiest in Crete, and also the public garden has a small zoo with animals from Cretan fauna.

The Venetian port picturesque any time and season is attractive to visitors and locals, both for its beauty and for the choices of entertainment for all tastes and demands. The old city "intramural" districts preserve their Venetian nobility. Narrow paved alleys are surrounded with tasteful renewed houses of various ages, are offered for a pleasant stroll.
