Chania is the 2nd largest city of Crete and capital of Chania regional unit. Chania lies along island's north coast, about 70 kilometers (43 miles) west of Rethymno and 145 kilometers (90 miles) west of Heraklion. In 2011 the municipality had 108,640 inhabitants. It consists of Chania city and several other towns and villages, such as Kounoupidiana (population 8,620), Mournies (7,610), Souda (6,420), Nerokouros (5,530), Daratsos (4,730), Perivolia (3,990), Galatas (3,170) and Aroni (3,000).

The city of Chania is easily divided into 2 parts: the modern city (the larger one) and the old town, located next to the old harbour - the whole urban area has been developed around it. the old town used to be surrounded by old Venetian fortifications which began to be built in 1538. 

Despite being heavily bombed during WWII, Chania's Old Town is reckoned Crete's most beautiful urban district, especially the Venetian harbour. The Old Town's borders are the mostly destroyed old Venetian wall and this has been the cradle of all civilizations developed in the region. The central part of Chania's old town is named Kasteli - inhabited since Neolithic times. Next to Kasteli's west end is Eleftherios Venizelos Square, the main square of the Old Town, also famous as Syntrivani ('fountain' in Turkish). It is the heart of touristic activities in the region. A distinctive area of city's Old Town is the harbour, and generally the "akti" (seafront). Akti Enoseos, Akti Kountouriotou and Akti Tompazi, all feature historical buildings and thriving nightlife. The main street combining the modern with the old town is Halidon Street.
