Crete doesn’t actually fit in a magazine – or even in an encyclopedia, or an entire lifetime. The fact that it is surrounded by sea doesn’t make it an island. Crete is its own universe, filled with contrasts. Its wealth – both natural and cultural – is awesome. Crete can blow your mind, cause you to change your life, your way of thinking, and make you realize the true meaning behind the buzzwords of today’s tourist vocabulary, such as “uniqueness”, “authenticity”, “experience” and “hospitality.”
This mammoth 228-page issue will introduce you to all of Crete's major regions and cities - their key sights, museums, beaches and tourist havens, as well as their remote villages and wild mountain landscapes. Read about the ancient Minoans and their gods and mythical creatures; then explore the eternal Cretan soul and the central role of music. Finally embark on a rich gastronomic journey; discover the best restaurants and local delicacies, and meet Crete's new generation of winemakers.
