Heraklion is the largest city in Crete, with the most populous pluralism. It has a history of thousands of years and is the commercial center of the island.
You understand that due to the extent of the city you can find what you are asking any time of the day. Cultures from around the world are met there every day, interact and make the city look more alive than ever.
The sights of the city are quite numerous and are a meeting place for locals and visitors alike. Beginning to mention some, we should talk about the Morosini Fountain first, and if it does not remind you of something we might have to refer to it as Lions. The Koules fortress is obviously one of the first choices and of course, a visit is worth to the Tomb of Nikos Kazantzakis as well as the unique Natural History Museum in Crete.
Heraklion is a big, modern city that moves at a fast pace, but it still keeps elements of tradition in its streets, its monuments and above all, its people.
