    Palace of Knossos Archaeological Museum Heraklion Town

    The Palace of Knossos

    Going to the island of Crete, you should use the chance to get acquainted with one of its greatest attractions. The Palace of Knossos, which you can see on numerous postcards, is the object of the most interest of thousands of tourists.

    This is connected not only with the legend about the Minotaur, who was supposed to live in the palace and whom Theseus had defeated so greatly. It attracts attention and impresses with due to the height of archaeological thought based on which the building was designed and implemented.

    The exact date of foundation of the Palace is unknown. As a result of numerous unfavourable factors, it did not reach our days in its original form. If it were not for the efforts of archaeologists, we would not be able to admire ancient buildings today. It became possible to partially restore the building only in the XX century. Looking on the fragments, one can only guess how the Palace looked like.

    It was called as labyrinth not by chance. The building was constructed in such a way that the premises were located chaotically and at different levels. They were connected by narrow identical passages from which it was almost impossible to get out. The building stands on powerful columns. Scientists could find one of the most ancient sewer systems among its ruins. Due to the fact that the ruins were deep in the ground, the robbers had no chance to plunder the unique artefacts. A lot of unique ancient things, frescoes and jewels were found on the territory of the Palace. You can see them personally and hear their unique history in the Archaeological Museum which is a mandatory point of our program.

    Heraklion

    We will also visit the heart of Crete – its capital, the city of Heraklion. Many interesting sights are waiting for us here:

    1. Lions Square
    2. Morosini Fountain
    3. Venetian Fortress
    4. Museum of Nikos Kazantzakis
    5. St. Titus Cathedral

    In the main square of the capital called Venizelou, which is popularly called the Lions Square, you can see the beautiful Morosini Fountain. It was built to provide water supply to the city. The central part is occupied by 4 lions, whose images we can see on the pedestal.

    You can get acquainted with the works of Nikos Kazantzakis in the museum located not far from Heraklion. You should certainly visit the Venetian Fortress, which was built to protect the coastal zone against the invaders. The attraction of the Fortress is the lighthouse, which was previously a mosque. In the 17th century, the Turks conquered the Fortress, for which they fought for years. They left only ruins behind. Presently, you can see only the Fortress walls remained, which are quite well preserved.
