Discover the Cretan history, culture & traditions

Crete is an island with a huge historical heritage and deep cultural roots.

From ancient times to the present day, the geopolitical position of Crete in the Mediterranean sea creates a crossroad of three continents, Asia, Europe and Africa. This was once one of the most important places in the known world. From the Minoan era to the battlegrounds of WWII, Crete played an immense role in the world's history.

This island occupied by a lot of different people throughout the centuries, and each one of them left its mark. Romans, Arabs, Venetians, Ottomans ruled the island in the past and affected the culture, customs, ethics, traditions of our people deeply. Modern Cretans are a unique blend of eastern and western civilization. Different characteristics from multiple cultures affected Cretans a lot, but their greatest and most admirable achievement is that they still called "Cretans". After all these hard occupation periods, Cretan people kept their identity, maybe not intact, but proudly true.
