A video-slideshow presentation of my visit to the Minoan Palace in Knossos, and my visit to the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. All photos are mine.

In the video composition I tried to create the connection between the Minoan art exposed in the (renewed) Archaeological Museum in Heraklion and the place where this art is from: the Minoan Palace in Knossos.

MINOAN PALACE, KNOSSOS
When visiting the Minoan Palace I experienced a peaceful but strong energy, as if I was walking on holy earth. All people must feel this, all walk very peaceful around, and nobody talks.

It was early when I arrived there, and already very hot. The long queue at the entrance of the queen’s room and the throne room in the full hot sunlight was for me reason not to join.
In my opinion the best time to visit the queen’s room is in the winter time, when there are not so many tourists.
My wish is to go there once again, in the future.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM, HERAKLION
The renewed museum is very impressive, and when you would ever visit Crete, then this is an absolute must. The same beautiful energy was there, around all what is exposed there in the rooms. Very very excellent organised, explained in accompanying highly interesting texts.

It is obvious that those who took care for the Minoan Palace, and all what has been found back, are unique professionals, with an unexplained feeling for what they were doing, digging up, restoring, completing puzzles of broken material. Real high standard artwork with a rare kind of love and passion for their job.
