European Capital of Culture in 2017 is ……… Paphos!

Date: 29/09/12

One can witness jubilant scenes in Paphos as the city was recently awarded the honorable title of European Capital Of Culture for 2017.

Paphos beat Nicosia in a closely fought battle to win the prestigious award that is bound to raise the cultural and economic profile of the city. It seemed that the thought of holding the event in historic Paphos was just too tempting to 13 member committee from the European Union.

Now the hard work begins making sure Paphos can live up to the expectations that come with the title of Europe’s Cultural Capital. For the duration of the year 2017 there will a large number of cultural events organized in Paphos to raise awareness of the rich historical background of the city, closely connected to other European countries. To sponsor these events the Cypriot Department of Education is allocation five million euros; some additional funds will come from the European Union. 

The last census conducted in the previous year showed that Paphos already was the most cosmopolitan city in Cyprus. The European Capital of Culture award will surely do much to make “our” Paphos an even more inclusive place for all the nations who live and love this town.

Congratulations to Paphos!
