Location

Crete is located in the most southern part of Greece and is the biggest Greek island with
an approximate area of 8.330 square kilometers and 570.000 inhabitants. Crete is the
island that separates the Aegean from the Libyan sea, and is the border between Europe
and Africa. The island provides the hospitality and relaxation for those who need some
time off the real world; an amazing place for party-lovers with cosmopolitan night-life,
but attracts also adventurers and sports activists; but also a business center which can
host the most demanding International conferences and incentive trips.
