The Origin of the City's Name
Scholars have been trying for years to analyse the etymology of the name "Hania," and to decide on the time when the name was changed from "Kythonia" to "Hania". The new name is first met as "Cania" in the document "Sexteriorum Cretensiu in Militias divisio" in 1211. Then the name "Canea" is mentioned in the document which relinquishes the Chania area to the Venicians in 1252. As for the change of the name from "Kythonia" to "Hania", the most convincing point of view is that of Prof. N. Platonas, who associates it with the existence of a big village "Alhania", named after the God "Valhanos" (Vulcan). The Sarasin Arabs found this name easier to use but confused it with their own word "Al Hanim" (the Inn). After the departure of the Arabs, the syllable "Al", probably taken to be the Arab article "Al" (the), was dropped when the name was translated into the Greek "Hania" and the Latin "Canea".

Chania is het departement in het westen van Kreta. Het kenmerkt zich door eindeloze stranden, kloven, specifieke planten (2100 inheemse soorten) en dieren, olijf- en sinaasappelgaarden en een combinatie van wilde landschappen en zee. In het bergachtige binnenland vind je nog traditionele dorpjes, torens, kerken, kloosters en kastelen. Het hele gebied is vol archeologische vondsten en een paradijs voor wandelaars, bergbeklimmers en andere sporten. In de stad Chania vind je vele oudheden, die het bezichtigen waard zijn. Bezoek de kerk St. Salvador met de Byzanthijnse collectie van Chania, op Halidon Street het Cretan House (volkskundigmuseum), de kerk St. Frangiskos (het archeologisch museum dagelijks van 8.30-15.00 uur (behalve maandagen)), het Maritiem museum (open van 9.00-16.00 uur, dagelijks), het oorlogsmuseum (dagelijks behalve in het weekend van 9.00 - 13.00 uur), de Venetiaanse vuurtoren en de vele terrassen van de bars en restaurants aan de haven. Voor mooie stranden en mooie foto's kun je vanuit de haven van Kastelli een excursie maken naar het prachtige Gramvoussa. Elafonissi in het zuidwesten van Chania heeft prachtige witte stranden en helder zeewater. In de zomermaanden kan het hier behoorlijk druk zijn. Verder heb je nog een mooi zandstrand in het zuiden met het fort Frangokastello. In de buurt van de stad Chania vind je nog meer brede zandstranden. Verder vind je in Chania een meer genaamd Kournas. Niet alleen op het Ionische eiland Zakynthos, maar ook in Chania (noordkust) komen de 'careta-careta' schildpadden hun eieren leggen.In het departement Chania ligt ook de bekende Samaria kloof. Via een bospad daal je 1225 meter af de kloof in. Op sommige plaatsen slechts 4meter breed, met rotswanden met een hoogte van 600 meter. De voettocht is +/- 16 km en duurt ongeveer 6 uur. Het eindstation is Agia Roumeli. De Samaria kloof is de smalste ter wereld. De kloof is te lopen van half mei tot en met september. Naast de bekendste kloof kun je ook de Imbros kloof lopen. Deze kloof is beter begaanbaar dan de Samaria kloof en begint ten oosten van de Samaria kloof bij het dorp Imbros in het departement Rethymnon. De wandeling is korter en duurt ongeveer 3 uur. Het smalste stuk is slechts 4 meter met rotswanden van ongeveer 30 meter hoog. De kloof is te lopen van maart tot en met oktober.
