The Street with Umbrellas | Heraklion, Crete

Adding some color & style in the city of Heraklion has added some extra interest for a forgotten street in the city. Tsikritzi Street.

Last June, one of Heraklion narrow streets was transformed to an .. umbrella street. The whole area changed and people would come over just to take photographs or even create sketches of it.

It is not too much to say that it has given some extra attention to the area, that was less visited before that.

The winter came and the umbrellas were ruined by the sun and the strong winds.

However, recently, new umbrellas were added to both sides of the Tsikritzi Street and they look very impressive, the least!

We, at can’t wait to see your new photos! As always, feel free to tag @aboutheraklion on Instagram for anything Heraklion related!
