Hidden gems of Heraklion
The Museum of Natural History: interactive fun for all ages
Consisting of five departments (Zoological, Botanical, Anthropological, Geological-Paleontological and Mineralogical), Heraklion’s Museum of Natural History features collections including samples from Greece and the wider Mediterranean area.
Historical Museum: Crete ‘preserved in amber’
This impressive modern museum is housed in an elegant, 20th-century building. It has a diverse number of permanent exhibitions, including the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection, Numismatic Collection, Ceramics and Sculpture section, Nikos Kazantzakis rooms and the Ethnographic Collection.
In the heart of the city
The pedestrian Daedalus shopping street, full of designer stores, connects Lionadarakia and Eleftherias squares. Walking west from the Lions’ Head Fountain, you enter the wide pedestrian Handakos Street, overflowing with even more shops and cafes.
