The "FIRKA" Fortress is situated at the entrance of Hania Old Harbour and it was constructed by the Venetians (1204-1669) in order to be used as the

local garrison and as a prison for the condemned to death, later Ottomans (1669- 1898) used it for the same purpose and established there the Division

Command. The Maritime Museum of Crete was founded in 1973, on the 32st anniversary of the Battle of Crete.The Maritime Museum is a great proof of

the interest and love for our glorious Greek Navy, which continuing its wonderful traditions in war and peace, bequeaths to this provincial derful city of Greece

a cultural space congruent with the best ones of that type in Europe".
