City of Chania

At the westernmost side of Crete, Chania is a wonderful place with a charming medieval town, some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, intriguing castles and a unique natural landscape, this region is full of amazing places to see!


Historians say that Chania was the exact location for the ancient Minoan establishment of Kydonia, a flourishing town. After the disappearance of the Minoan civilization, the area declined and flourished again in the 14th century, when it was conquered by the Venetians.


The Venetians have left their vivid mark in the region, mostly in Chania town. Most of the elegant mansions that can be found in the Old Town of Chania date from that era, while the Venetian lighthouse in the Old Port has become over the years the trademark of the town. Those times, the region flourished out of trade and arts were developed.


The Venetian period of Chania ended in 1645 when it was conquered by the Ottomans. Remains of the Ottoman period still survive in Chania Town, such as the Ottoman Baths and some mosques, with the mosque of Kioutsouk Hanan being the most notable.


The city of Chania is located 12km from the venue of BioEM2024,  Minoa Palace Resort, which is in Platanias.

The Island of Crete

Crete, the Mediterranean’s fifth-largest island, stands as a beacon at Europe’s southern edge, drawing legions of visitors to its sun-drenched shores. This Greek jewel is renowned not just for its sunlit beauty but for the warmth and hospitality of its people, whose rich cultural tapestry, innovative ethos, and renowned dietary practices have been praised through the ages.


The island presents a remarkable fusion where rugged mountains dip into the azure sea, and ancient wisdom is echoed through modern life. Crete is a crucible of history, where strategic geography has shaped it into a cultural nexus, intertwining myths with the threads of history so closely that they seem to dance together in time. The island breathes life into legends and historical tales, from the labyrinths of Minos to the adventures of Ariadne and the Minotaur, with every corner whispering stories from epochs long past.


As the cradle of the Minoan civilization, which marks the dawn of European literacy, Crete holds a pivotal place in the annals of European history. It was here that Minos Kalokairinos unveiled the echoes of a sophisticated past through his excavations in Knossos in 1878, revealing the earliest Linear B tablets. Arthur Evans’s groundbreaking discovery of three Bronze Age scripts during the initial excavation at Knossos in 1900, including the enigmatic “Cretan Hieroglyphic,” Linear A, and the deciphered Mycenaean Linear B, catapulted Minoan and Mycenaean Crete from the realm of myth into the clear light of historical inquiry.
