Get in the Holiday Spirit at these events
The holidays are approaching and Cyprus has filled with Christmas markets and other fun activities spreading holiday cheer across the island.
Here are some of the great activities, you can enjoy to get yourself in the holiday spirit and feel the warmth of the season.
Christmas Fairylands in Nicosia and Limassol
In the capital nothing more heralds the coming of Christmas and the festive climate than the Christmas Fairyland!
So at the intersection of Iosif Hadjiosif and Troodos avenues, this year from mid-November (estimated around 15-17 of the month) until 12 January 2020, Ayia Napa’s Parko Paliatso will set up its games to offer us unique moments.
What is changing at the Fairyland is the decoration, which will be richer and brighter this year, and the atmosphere … which will take you to a magical Christmas village, with a house that will serve delicacies, lots of toys and Santa Claus, who will arrive from the faraway Rovaniemi, Finland.
And this year, in addition to games (carousels, ice skating rink, horror train, formula one booster and more) that will entertain young and old alike, there will also be an art program featuring concerts with renowned Greek and Cypriot artists.
Limassol will also have a Christmas fair this year, with games and concerts by popular artists. Limassol’s Christmas Fairyland is set up on the site of Limassol Old Port.
