Crete, sometimes spelled Krete (Greek Kriti) is the largest of the Greek islands and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean Sea.
Tourist attractions in Crete include archeological sites at Knossos, Phaistos, Gortys and many other places, the Venetian castle in Rethimno, the Samaria Gorge and many other minor gorges (Agia Irini, Aradena, etc).
Crete was the location of the Minoan civilization (ca. 3000-1400 BC), one of the first civilizations in Europe.
