  • [01] May Day wreath in Crete seeks place in Guinness Book

    A huge May Day wreath in Heraklion, Crete, is vying for a place in the Guinness World Records Book. The wreath, made of more than 20,000 flowers contributed by the prefecture's florists, has a diameter of 18 meters and weights more than 1.5 tons. It stands outside the Heraklion City Hall, and more than 30 people worked on its construction.

    The impressive wreath was raised by crane outside the City Hall, and tourists rushed to photograph it.

    Heraklion mayor Yannis Kourakis praised the endeavour by the association of Heraklion's florists and shopowners, saying it contributed to the promotion of the island and more particularly the prefecture.
