Lake Kournas - the only one on the island Crete freshwater lake. It is located in the foothills, at an altitude of 25 meters above sea level, 4 km from the tourist resort of Georgioupolis. The water level in lake is constant. According to legend, the lake was formed from the tears of the girl, whose name was Korissia (it was originally name of Lake). Later it was renamed by the Arabs in Kournas, which in Arabic means "lake". On the lake you can have a great day, water bicycle and a snack in one of the many tavernas. Озеро Курнас - единственное на острове Крит пресноводное озеро. Оно расположено в предгорье, на высоте 25 метров над уровнем моря, в 4 километрах от туристического курорта Георгиуполис. Уровень воды в озере постоянен. По одной из легенд это озеро образовалось из слёз девушки, которую звали Кориссия - так первоначально называлось это озеро. Позже оно было переименовано арабами в Курнас, что по-арабски значит «озеро». На озере можно прекрасно провести день, покатавшись на водном велосипеде, и перекусить в одной из многочисленных таверн.
