"Crete, doesn't need householders, she wants ’kouzoulous’. These ’kouzouloi’ make her immortal…"

This is an adage of Nikos Kazantzakis, one of the most important Greek writer and he was right! Let us introduce you the the real Crete. In two hours we will go deep into Cretan culture and we will learn things about the Cretan tradition. We will meet the Cretan knife makers that create with their own hands magnificent artworks. The Cretan knife is a very important and historical symbol for the Cretan tradition. After that, you will surprise your palate with Cretan wine varieties and delicious gastronomical experiences. We will taste different expressions of Cretan wines pairing with some incredible traditional delicatessen. At the end we will visit the Folklor museum of Chania, where we will travel through the centuries. Extraordinary exhibits and analytic details will teach us about the themes of the past.
