“Remember the other side”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

A quiet place, set on a hill. Beautifully kept as you would expect.
Not a place to visit for those people with walking difficulties, although there are seats placed out of the sun to rest as you walk up to a flat area. Worth a visit.

“Good to visit - educational.”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Well kept cemetary, little cafe, no change to enter. Great views from right up at back of it. English translated information about war events, battles, and loss of life of army.

So quiet, just the opposite to what happened here in the second world war.

“An Oasis of peace”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

A sad reminder of the human cost of war mirrored by the Commenwealth cemetery at Souda. All very young men, we call them 'World Wars' but in reality they were European civil wars fought at great cost in blood and treasure. Excellent views from the top of the old air strip and Tavronitis Bridge
