Being an important shipping port and ferry boats for travelers to take to go to the nearby Athens port, Heraklion is also one of the largest cities in Greece. A museum worth the visit is the Historical Museum of Crete which showcases the seventeen centuries long rich history of the island with arty-crafts, paintings, relics and short films. The museum is well set-up with an amazing view of the sea and a small coffee shop. An interesting place to take your children can be the Cretaquarium Thalassocosmos. The visitors can take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea to see the astonishing seascapes, the sea bed and various rock formations along with seeing the lovely sea creatures. A monument in Crete which is given much importance is the Palace of Knossos, 5km southeast of Heraklion, in the river valley of Kairatos. The palace was beautifully built with many legends to its history.
