Renowned as the birthplace of Aphrodite and standing as one of the most famous places of pilgrimage of the Ancient Greeks, the entire Paphos town stands proud as a UNESCO world heritage site. But now, locals have yet another accolade to be proud of, having won the international competition to become the European Capital of Culture for 2017 along with Aarhus in Denmark.
Many cultural events and functions will take place in Paphos during 2017 but also in the months leading.
Designed to bring the citizens of Europe closer together by the EU Council of Ministers in 1985, the ‘Capital of Culture’ concept has since gone from strength to strength, with the title leading to great cultural and socio-economic impact for each country awarded the title. With preparations now underway in Paphos as it responds to the ambitious project, it aims to fast become the most hospitable capital of Europe.
On 28th and 29th of January 2017 the Central Paphos area in front of the City Hall will hold the opening ceremony, with the participation of local and foreign cultural figures.
