Agios Nikolaos was one of the very first hubs for tourism on the island of Crete. Favoured today by west European tourists, it’s still a bristeling hub of activity, with beautiful landscape and a wonderfully comfortable surroundings in this city of a little under 20000 local inhabitants.

Agios Nikolaos has one of Crete’s two lakes, originally a freshwater lake that was later connected to the sea by a channel in the 19th century.

Here’s a panoramic picture
