Crete is an  island in Greece. It is the largest island in the Mediterranian sea. Here are two cities in Crete:


Hereaklion is the capital city of Crete it was named Heraklion because they think that Hercules was born there. Heraklion is also where the Minotour was as they say. The Minotour lived in Knossos.It would take approximately 4 or more hours to get there. There is Stalis in Heraklion. Stalis is very close to the sea. Stalis is more busy at night apparently.
