Heraklion is the largest city in Crete and the capital of the island. Heraklion a busy town a communications hub that receive and distribute most tourism traffic arriving on the island but light industry and Agriculture in the periphery also affect the life. Iraklio is located in the middle of the north beach really close to Knossos and has one of the most interesting archaeological museums of the world. The city of Heraklion still enjoys its reputation as one of the most attractive Mediterranean capitals. It has enough to offer that the cultural tastes and shopping needs of both the visitors and the residents are fully catered for. It is no accident that it has always been the business and social centre of Crete throughout the ages and that status is maintained today. It plays host to many interests and activities as well as providing a very pleasant way of life. The variety and extent of Cretes coastline make it possible for bathers to enjoy an infinite number of different places to swim all of them lapped by warm crystal clear water. Heraklion has an impressive variety of goods to offer shoppers from top designer labels and exquisite jewellery to fine antiques and high quality leather goods. To spend an evening the way most Iraklians themselves do stroll about -the famous Mediterranean volta- then sit in a cafe and watch others stroll by. The prime locations for the latter have been Plateia Eleftheria -Liberty Square- or Fountain Square but the packed-in atmosphere of these places-and the overly aggressive solicitation of your presence by some waiters-has considerably reduced their charm. Crete has one of the oldest and most tasty gastronomic traditions in the world a tradition of tastes aromas ingredients and skills which begin from the prehistoric years and continue until today. Heraklion has numerous restaurants and taverns that cater for all tastes.Information missing or incorrect? Tell us!
