City breaks versus beach holidays? Much depends on destination, time of year and personal preference, of course. Events such as annual exhibitions and special concerts can be a big visitor draw at any time, and early October is no exception in Nicosia.
When the high summer season draws to a close, autumn bookings at the best Nicosia hotels can often reflect a varied mix of international business people, friends or couples on a long weekend break. City breaks are generally the choice of the culturally curious and the energetic, keen to experience as much of their chosen destination that it can offer.
Many business or cultural events held every year
Customary sightseeing activities are always likely to include museums, galleries, historic buildings – even a spot of shopping! But during the autumn and winter season, overseas visitors booking Nicosia accommodation are likely to be in town for one of the many business or cultural events held every year.
Among a number of business conferences and trade shows planned for the months ahead, The Ideal Home Exhibition is sure to attract both casual visitor and professional interest, alike.
Ideal Home Exhibition
This is the 4th annual outing in Cyprus with more than 70 exhibitors divided into five sections covering furniture, cooling and heating, building materials, kitchen equipment and land development. There really is something for everyone as visitors are given a sneak preview of the latest developments in every conceivable aspect of home buying, building, decorating and furnishing, and home appliances. The Ideal Home Exhibition is at the ExpoCyprus, Egkomi, Nicosia Friday 4th – Sunday 6th October.
The same weekend – Saturday 5th – will see the 13th Cyprus-Russia Gala take place at the Presidential Palace, attended by Republic of Cyprus First Lady, Andri Anastasiades, and once again is in support of the Radiomarathon Foundation, which helps children with special needs and their families.
13th Cyprus-Russia Gala
Cyprus and Russia have enjoyed an ever-growing cultural relationship ever since the late 1990s with a continuous Russian arts programme comprising ballet and opera, classical orchestras, singer and piano recitals, traditional and contemporary jazz. Around 800,000 visitors to Cyprus are from Russia each year – up fourfold from the 181,000 a decade earlier (Republic of Cyprus Statistical Service).
Nicosia hotels are sure to see a number of visitors who will be attending performances at the Gala by Russian Eurovision star 2016 and 2019 – Sergey Lazarev, virtuoso accordion duo Bondarenko Brothers from the Moscow State Academic Theatre, Cypriot acclaimed Dionysos Dance Group and Greek-Swedish singer, Elena Paparizou and 2005 Eurovision winner.
