What should you visit
The first settlements in Heraklion appeared thousands of years ago. The city changed its name several times but continued to develop and replenish its own treasury of monuments. The following objects will help you learn a lot about its rich history.:
— Historical Museum, which contains historical documents, household items and works of Cretan icon painters. There are also exhibitions with samples of Byzantine art, folklore traditions and an exhibition dedicated to the events of the Second World War. In a separate room there is a detailed model of the city of the 17th century, made on a scale of 1:500.
— The Archaeological Museum is one of the best in Greece. It preserves an invaluable heritage of Minoan culture. On the first floor, the exhibits are divided into 13 thematic rooms, while on the second floor they are arranged in chronological order. The exposition is periodically replenished with new finds from excavations. The crown jewel of the museum is the Phaistos disc with a sample of Minoan civilization writing. It has not yet been deciphered, because many objects of this literacy have not been found.
— The Cathedral of the Apostle Titus is one of the main Orthodox shrines in Greece. The relics of Saint Apostle Titus, who preached Christianity in Heraklion in the 1st century, are kept here. After the conquests by the Turks and Venetians, the cathedral changed religion, but eventually returned to the Orthodox Church.
— Kules Fortress, rebuilt during the Venetian rule in the 16th century after an earthquake. The building with an area of 3600 square meters has preserved its original appearance to this day and is one of the most beautiful examples of medieval architecture in the city. Previously, a mosque was located nearby, which was reconstructed into a lighthouse.
