Greece。Crete。Chania 希臘克里特島之甘尼亞古城

 June 2016
Greece is a country with rich history and culture. Almost everyone knows the Greek mythology since childhood. It is said that Crete was the birth place of sky and thunder god Zeus, who is an important character in mythology. I visited Chania that is city located in western part of Crete as my first stop in Greece.

希臘是個有著豐富歷史文化的國度。希臘神話從小聽到大,而克里特島,據說就是希臘神話中著名的天空與雷電之神-宙斯的出生地。位於克里特島西方的城市甘尼亞,是我希臘之旅的第一站。

 Chania is second largest city in the Crete, there is an airport and port here. Modern facilities and ancient culture are mixing in this city. In Old town, especially, many historical remains can be seen here. It is said that the central part of old town has been inhabited since Neolithic times.

甘尼亞是克里特島的第二大城市,有一座機場與港口。現代的設施與古老的文化參差交錯於這個城市中,其中古城區更是遺跡處處。古城的中心部分,據說從新石器時代時期就已經有人居住。

Some ancient and collapsed wall can be found around old town area, they were maybe Hellenistic and Byzantine walls, or probably Venetian walls. They were built in different period, but I didn't care. As a common visitors, I saw them as a whole, became just part sceneries in this city.

古城區周邊,不時可以看見一小段傾頹的城牆。它們或許是在西元前三世紀左右的拜占庭時期所興建,也或者是建於十三世紀左右的威尼斯統治時期,又或者是其他被統治的時期。不論是哪個時代的傑作,這些城牆現在都只是這個城市的一部份,訴說著過往的歷史痕跡。





The old town is close harbor. I walked back to hostel, chose the road through the Old Town, felt the atmosphere that was similar to night market of Taiwan. In addition, I also enjoyed strolling in the waterfront area in the night time.

古城區也靠近港口海岸邊。傍晚從市區回到旅社,特意選擇穿越古城的小路,除了感受類似台灣夜市的熱鬧風情外,夜晚水岸邊漫步也是愜意享受。
