Heraklion, Greece — Europe's Oldest City


A place that has changed hands as many times as Heraklion is bound to be riddled with history. The Saracens, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans have all left their mark on the city, which is located on the northern coast of Crete. With ancient architecture, statues and buildings – some dating back to the Bronze Age – Heraklion offers a wealth of history mixed with an ideal Mediterranean climate. History truly comes alive in Europe's oldest city.



Top Attractions: HeraklionMap of Keraklion, Greece

  1. Knossos: A Bronze Age archeological site complete with a palace and surrounding buildings dating back to roughly 2000 BC.

  2. Koules: This Venetian fort was built in the 15th century to defend Heraklion from invaders. Today it is a popular tourist destination and is widely viewed as the symbol of Heraklion.

  3. Heraklion Archaeological Museum: One of the largest and most important museums in Greece, this facility houses unique exhibits of Minoan art. It is considered the museum of Minoan culture par excellence worldwide. It houses representative artifacts from all the periods of Cretan prehistory and history, covering a time span of over 5,500 years from the Neolithic period to Roman times.

  4. The Lions: A typical feature of Heraklion is its Venetian and Turkish fountains, scattered all around the city. The most famous one is the Venetian-style Μorozinifountain, also known as the Lions (1628), a landmark for local inhabitants and visitors alike.

  5. Coast Road: Life in Heraklion isn't all monuments and statues. Coast Road is home to the city's night life, bars and restaurants.
