Traditional Christmas Market 2019

Cyprus’ biggest and best Christmas market will take place on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th November between 17:00-22:30.

Is there a better way to welcome the oncoming festive season rather than by wandering around the 100’s of stalls, stocking up on beautiful handmade gifts.

Santa will be there in his fantastic new snow-covered grotto, find him in the winter wonderland secret forest along with a huge white bouncy castle.

His friend Snowy the Polar bear will be giving out treats for any children that come and say hello. (he likes photos and cuddles too)

It’s the perfect place to pick up presents and decorations, as well as sample some delicious food, with a cup of warm glühwein (mulled wine), whilst listen to Christmas music, you will definitely get into the festive spirit!

A fun evening for all the family.

Don’t Miss It!
