Easter in Agios Nikolaos, Crete

The season of Spring is a worth visiting period for holidays, since Easter in Agios Nikolaos is a very special and unique experience and a pole of attraction for many travelers from all over the world. For the Greek Orthodox tradition, Easter or “Pascha” in Greek,  is the most important celebration of the year.
The Resurrection is seen as the basis of life itself, and the festivities are a time of joy and renewal.

In Agios Nikolaos, the celebrations take on a special significance. On the evening of Holy Saturday, a spectacular burning of Judas takes place around the picturesque Lake Voulismeni, accompanied by fireworks and the exchange of well-wishes.

So if you are thinking of visiting Crete, but not in the middle of the summer, spring is an ideal choice, nature is at its best, the weather is warm and it is the best time to explore the villages and the real Greek culture.

Cliff Diving

Since 2016 ,a high-level diving competition and a night show, take place in the Lake of Agios Nikolaos. The rocks of the centrally located Lake Voulismeni are ideal for international rock divers to impress us with their skills.
