In the rugged mountainous southern Crete, approximately about 50 km. south of Chania on a tiny plateau in a little valley, there is a private museum full of World War II artifacts.
The museum is at a home. The late Mr. Hatzidakis, who was an enthusiastic and friendly man, found all of this war memorabilia himself as a very young man. If you visit, you can walk through a collection of unexploded bombs, flags, and large guns, and perhaps the Hatzidakis family will invite you into the little sitting room for a small glass of raki, a clear liqueur that packs quite a wallop.
To get there, the visitor needs to have his or her own transportation. Follow the signs once you get to the village of Askifou on the road between Hora Sfakion and Chania.
