  • This is a hyper-modern museum in a village-like environment. Such a modern museum does not expect you to be in the place where it stands. There is a disaster near the parking lot, but when it is successful the museum meets the set up. Here, too, a documentary about his life was first shown in our own language. The person behind the counter had studied in Leiden in the Netherlands where he was very proud. Kazantzakis has travelled a lot during his lifetime and has known many famous people like Albert Einstein/Stalin and he had been in China at that time. He has translated many old books and also made theatrical performances. But our impression is that he is not much appreciated by everyone. But we thought the museum was worth its money.
