DAVE VORLAND: Photo Gallery — Isle Of Crete

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Crete is the largest and the most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is the harbor city of Heraklion, where the Historical Museum of Crete is located. Bloomington, Minn., photographer Dave Vorland visited the island recently, capturing photos of museum, where artifacts from 1600 B.C. are stored, as well as the Palace of Knossos, once the home of King Midas and other rulers. The palace, which is essentially a pile of rubble, remains an active archeological site.

    Cool photos, thanks! When I lived in Europe (20+ year) we used to fly to Corfu and rent a sailboat to sail the Ionian Islands. It was fabulous. My sister and a group of friends built two homes in Lefkakia, about 120 km from Athens. Each of the 8 couples use them for 8 months of the year. The other 4 months they rent it out at extremely reasonable prices. If you’re interested, check out their website….private message me and I’ll put you in touch with my sister if you’re interested in a Greek adventure.
