Cyprus, the island known as the island of beauty. The island in which the goddess Aphrodite was born; the goddess of love and beauty. The modern myth says that she actually rose out of the popular “Petra tou Romiou” seaside, one of the most beautiful coastlines of the island which is located in Pafos.
Pafos is included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world’s heritage.
There are tons of valuable ancient attractions, which became very popular nowadays, such as the house of Dionysus, the house of Theseus, the remarkable castle of Pafos, the Pafos lighthouse, the tombs of the Kings and many others.
Due to all these amazingly precious treasures, Pafos is officially the cultural capital city of 2017 in Europe.
Exhibition squares, street and neighborhood concerts, outdoor cinemas, antiquities and modern theatre, dancing in parks, are some of the many events that will take place annually, making this year a real cultural event year.
