Pensions in Crete
Your first stop on the Greek island of Crete will be the city of Heraklion. Whether you choose pensions from private owners here or travel further into the other cities of the island or the wilderness areas populated by a wide variety of flora and fauna not seen elsewhere in the world. During your stay in Heraklion, there are several important sites you won't want to miss. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum has a large collection art and artefacts from the Minoan civilization, the Roman period, and even further back to statues and pottery from the Neolithic settlements of the island. Some objects displayed from the Minoan civilization are covered in a script called Linear A, which has yet to be deciphered. The Museum of Natural History offers a glimpse into the island's unique habitat, including fossils of unique dinosaurs found nowhere else, living exhibits, and a special children's area. The Lychnostatis Open Air Museum is an homage to unique culture and economy of Crete, featuring a distillery, olive presses, and workshops for those who learn best by doing. It also serves as the venue for the Traditional September festival, where you'll witness the native music and dances.
