Things to do in Agios Nikolaos, Greece
Reviews > Europe > Greece > Agios Nikolaos > Things to do in Agios Nikolaos
Agios Nikolaos is one of the major cities of Crete. It is located 80 km-s west from the airport Heraklion.
It isn't so touristy like Hersonissos. There are some nice buildings, a lake in the middle of the town, and a sandy strand. It is very pleasant and there are many things to do, but it's not so crowded, which is a great plus for it taking in account the other Greek cities. Kids loved it and so did we, you can take great walks among the narrow streets of the town and also inside it.

The city became the home of Europe’s largest Jewish population; an attempt of the Ottoman’s to... Read more »
