Heraklion is a great option for both permanent residents and holiday visitors. The largest city of Crete and one of the biggest cities in Greece, Heraklion has highly developed (and ever evolving) infrastructures. Here are some of the biggest and widely acknowledged universities, which means that youth, vividness and high rhythm of life are an integral aspect of the city.
In the south of the prefecture you have some of the best beaches in the world. The Minoan civilization was born and developed here, therefore traditions and history have shaped the culture and the way of life. The most developed infrastructure of the island is here, therefore your life as a permanent resident is highly facilitated. The international airport connects Heraklion with hundreds of European cities in a daily basis. Excellent and multiple public and private hospitals are located in the center and in the greater area of the city, while both public and modern private schools and universities provide a highly competitive level of education.
