Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the
thirteen administrative regions of Greece. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining
its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry, and music). Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization
(c. 2700 – 1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe.
