  • Gave of Zeus in Crete, located on the road from the Plateau of Lassithi, worldwide as many caves of Zeus, this is one of them, I believe it merits the attention, depth is not for the faint of heart and not suffering from claustrophobia I had 30 minutes, that would be decided, but initially I wanted to donate my tickets to tourists, friends ulomali still go down. The cave can be not good, people with asthma, heart disease, keep in mind. About shoes-sneakers, no shale. In this beautiful, do not compare with the deletantskimi caves in Abkhazia, Georgia. Entrance fee, probably it's affecting lighting and the "Interior" of the cave. Children are delighted. Backlight makes it possible to make high quality photo. Guides offer to throw a coin into one of the mountain streams inside, they say, Zeus will fulfill your desire. It is necessary to make the ascent to the cave is not for slabachkov, you can get expensive, you can almost walk on all fours, clinging to grass, mountain, so shorter, but jekstremalnee. On the road the same stand pogonyaly donkeys, for bribe dotashhat your frail, tired body, right up to the entrance. To attend advise, again, not cave ALA dug that would dilute a tourist and truly an art!

  • The cave of Zeus (on all cards marked as Dikteon Cave) is located in the homonymous mountain from Lassithi plateau. The cave itself is famous for the fact that it pretty much figures of the god Zeus (hence the name). Ascent and descent to the cave on slope paved with stone. For not wanting to climb the legs, can rent a donkey, but lifting-lowering time increases significantly. The cave is cool even in hot summer. Descent and ascent passage in the cave is made quite orderly, incoming and outgoing streams of caves do not intersect. All stairs and ramps are equipped with handrails and railings. Lights in the cave also performed at an adequate level in different colors. Payment of the entrance to the cave is made at the top of the cave. There is also near toilets and ticket office good lookout on the Lassithi plateau.
