Agios Nikolaos!

As the capital of the Prefecture of Lassithi, Ag. Nikolaos is everything that one would expect from a capital city ... a cosmopolitan atmosphere, an incredibly charming and very picturesque port, a high tourist infrastructure with many restaurants, shops, exciting and lively nightlife, and plenty of cultural events, especially the Lato Cultural Festival that starts at the end of July and goes on until the beginning of September.

The city itself is not necessarily renowned for its excellent beaches, as those will really be found further north at the well developed beach resort of Elounda, but rather for its cosmopolitan atmosphere and the many restaurants and shops that are found here. A notable feature of the town is the small lake (Voulismeni) in the center of the town (said to be bottomless, through actually about 60 meters deep) which has been connected to the sea and is crossed by a small bridge.

thanks for visit...
