Chania is characterized by a wealth of cultural tradition. The Cretan folk tradition is especially reflected through handicrafts, tapestries, etc. Women, individually or part as part of a coop, create silk and woolen embroideries. In Chania you can also find unique pieces of art made from glass, wood and metal as well as pottery, wood carving and metal crafting workshops.
The crafting of Stivania (a traditional leather Cretan boot) is also a unique art that you can witness on Skrydlof Street (Stivanadika). Another form of Cretan art is Knife crafting.
Visitors can enrich their travels by enjoying and participating in cultural events and getting acquainted with the unknown but very interesting aspects of Cretan folk heritage.
