Cyprus – Festivals

July 2008


Cyprus has a cultural heritage going back for more than ten thousand years. Monuments and relics all around the Island (Greek temples, Roman mosaics, Byzantine churches and frescoes) remind us of the rich history, and its influence on the daily life of the locals and the visiting tourists, leaving them with an overwhelming experience. Ancient theatres like Curium outside Limassol and the ancient Odeon at Kato Paphos have undergone restoration and are now used for a variety of performances. Various cultural events take place all over Cyprus throughout the year.

Here below are some of the cultural events for the next few months.
