Busy Heraklion

Heraklion or Iraklion the birthplace of El Greco and Nikos Kazantzakis can at first seem a nightmare, particularly if you arrive expecting to see a picturesque little island town.

Heraklion is a very busy port town, but for some reason it didn’t float my boat. Maybe it is overpowering with modern and ugly mixed architecture with a narrow hight street heaving with shops? Maybe it’s the traffic or the concrete and dust? Perhaps if we were staying longer there, we would find things to like, or maybe I was just not in the right mood this time. However, please do not be put off by my comments. If you are ever are in Crete, do go to Heraklion by any means and decide for yourself what to make of it.

    • Thank you, Linda.
      Well, I probably missed out a lot of the things worth to be seen, but as I’ve said, I probably wasn’t in a mood then to explore this city :/
