  • Very impressing ethnological exhibition travelling through the history of Cyprus, showing drawings, maps, posters but also scenes with costumed mannequins and artefacts of daily use like beer mats, dishes, cigarette packets etc. The restaurant offers delicious local specialities, the shop has a good assorted bookcorner, local costum jewellery, posters and small presents. In any case worth visiting!
