Crete, Greece


I would love to visit this beautiful place someday!

This postcard is postmarked in 2011 with three Greece stamps.

Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own dialect, poetry, and music).

It was the centre of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), the first civilization in Europe and the first European country with a palace (at Knossos).
