Nikiforos Fokas

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Nikiforos Fokas is a city in the Rethymno region, Crete, Greece, named after the 10th century Byzantine Emperor Nikephoros II. In 2001, the population of the city was 6,599. The seat of the municipality is in Gonia. Rethymno is a region in the island of Crete. Today its main income is tourism. The countryside of the region is also based economically on agriculture and herding. Crete is the biggest of the Greek islands and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean Sea. 
Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in south-eastern Europe, situated on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula. It is bordered by Bulgaria, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Albania to the north and by Turkey to the east. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of mainland Greece while the Ionian Sea lies to the west. Both parts of the eastern Mediterranean basin feature a vast number of islands.
