Crete has to be one of the most interesting Greek islands. Crete is the largest Greek island with the highest population. It is also the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Crete has adapted to the many demands of tourists, yet it still maintains its proud heritage. The island also features its own unique dialect, arts and culture and music styles.

It is one of the oldest islands and dates back as far as the 18th century before the year of Christ. It shows that the first European civilisation arose here and the first palace was erected. It has a strong biblical history, but also a history of Greek gods and the many battles between the religious tribes.
