“Home Away From Home”: A Magical Time for All the Family Celebrating Christmas!

It won’t be long now! Soon many of the best hotels in Nicosia will once more be filled with people in their chosen “Home away from Home”, celebrating Christmas and New Year in family-friendly Cyprus. It’s a magical time for the children, of course, yet there’s so much for all the family to see and do! The glittering, eye-dazzling wonder starts the moment you arrive in the capital…

Bustling fairground

Welcome to Fairyland! Easily found on Hadjiosif Avenue, Strovolos. You really can’t miss it. A giant shining Ferris wheel emblazoned high up in the night sky announces that you have arrived at a bustling fairground of “hey, look at this”, attractions and other eye catching novelties. Concerts featuring popular singers and bands from Cyprus and Greece will be held in the evenings right through the holidays. Kids will love it and so will your inner child!

Fairy-tale wooden houses

The magic continues… Makarios Avenue, the main shopping avenue of Nicosia, is transformed into a Christmas Village lined with fairy-tale, wooden houses offering all kinds of festive goodies, old and new, and of every description. Wherever you look, tall Christmas trees sparkle and big decorations twinkle and gleam. Until 8th January, it’s a non-stop daily programme of fairs, choirs, music and dance performances, plus plenty of fun activities for the kids to enjoy.

Those lucky enough to arrive in town before Christmas Eve, there’s traditional festive adventures galore for the culturally curious but also young at heart.

Land of the Snow Queen

“Christmas and the Snow Queen”, featuring huge snow balls and stunning laser lights, is to be held at the Latsia Municipal Theatre on Sunday 22nd. Billed as the main event of the season, everyone is taken on a thrilling journey to the land of the Snow Queen, accompanied by Santa Claus and a party of polar bears! There are daunting challenges to overcome and perils to face at every turn, including an ice monster defending the Snow Kingdom.

Free Christmas concert

The night before Christmas Eve (Mon 23rd) offers an opportunity to attend a free Christmas Concert by the Nicosia Concert Orchestra at the Pallas Theatre, Paphos Gate, Old Nicosia (8.30-10.00pm), one of the many traditional events to be held across the island.

Organised by the “Friends of Harmony” and under the patronage of the Mayor of Nicosia, Constantinos Yiorkatzis, the “Armonia” Chorus Ensemble will feature traditional seasonal compositions plus music reflecting the 15th century Byzantine heritage of Cyprus.
