Over the past five years, I believe that we have managed to accomplish this task. Every year, about two and a half thousand compatriots and Cypriots come to concerts, exhibitions, meetings with artists and poets. For the second year, the Russian Centre of the Russian World Foundation and the National University of Culture have been successfully operating at the Russian House.”

In a welcoming speech, the mayor of Limassol, Nicos Nicolaides, noted that the activities of the Russian House are very noticeable in Limassol and bear a positive charge. We appreciate our cooperation and will try to fully develop it ,” he said.
