Chania - Greece.

  1. 1. Automatic Chania Photos and information’s
  2. 2. Crete <ul><li>Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is part of the regional government of Greece and is divided into four prefectures: Heraklion, Chania, Lasithi and Rethymno. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own dialect, poetry, and music). Crete was the centre of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), one of the first civilizations in Europe. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Chania (peripheral unit) <ul><li>Chania peripheral unit, often informally termed 'Western Crete', is a beautiful and in many parts unspoilt part of the island. Districts include verdant Apokoronas, mountainous Sfakia, and Selino in the far South West corner. Some other notable towns in the Chania prefecture are: Hora Sfakion, Kastelli-Kissamos, Palaiochora, Maleme, Vryses, Vamos, Georgioupolis and Kalives. </li></ul><ul><li>The natural park of Samaria Gorge, a major tourist attraction and a refuge for the rare Cretan wild goat or kri kri, is in the South of the peripheral unit. The White Mountains or Lefka Ori, through which the Samaria, Aradena, Imbros and other gorges run, are the limestone peaks topped by snow until May that occupy much of Chania peripheral unit. They contain more than 40 peaks over 2,000 meters high. The highest peak in this area is Pachnes, at 2,453 meters above sea level. </li></ul><ul><li>Crete's only freshwater lake, Lake Kournas, is in the peripheral unit close to the border with Rethymno peripheral unit, 47 km from Chania. It is relatively large, with a perimeter of 3.5 km. The lake used to be called 'Korisia' after ancient 'Korion', a city thought to be in the area with a temple to Athena. The lake used to be reportedly full of eels but now is better known for its terrapins and tourists. Tavernas and pedalo rental shops line part of the shore. Overall, however, the lake retains its beauty, the White Mountains reflected in the mirror-like waters. </li></ul>
