If you want to venture to another magical realm while still being in the hub of Nicosia’s walled city, visit the Fairytale Museum, on a quiet tucked away street behind Pafos Gate. It will take you on a journey through enchanting fairy tales, bringing back childhood memories and playfully creating new ones.
One of the newest museums on the island, this Nicosia-based one is an absolute delight as visitors can experience their favourite legends come to life, while the imagination runs wild.
Well-known and unknown fairytales, artworks based on fairy tales, rare books, themed exhibitions, music inspired or written for fairytales meet within a space which inspires both the young and old. For a more personal and engaging visit look for the story-telling sessions, themed exhibitions, events and performances that take place on a regular basis. To really dive into the mystical world of fairy tales the museum encourages visitors to explore everything from Aesop’s Fables to Narnia and will please both children and adults.
Accompany your visit to the museum with a walk around Nicosia’s old town and head to one of the many eateries that surround the neighbourhood to taste the luscious local cuisine.
