  • In the small village of Meniko, Cyprus that in 20 km from the capital, is a wonderful place-the Church of Saints Cyprian and Giustina (Ustin′i). Both saints are very reverent in Cyprus. However, in this church, built in the 14th century, come not only Turkish Cypriots. It is a place of pilgrimage for many tourists from all over the world, especially Christians. They come here to worship the two great saints whose history shows the greatness and strength of the truth of faith and God. The fact of the matter is that prior to his baptism Cyprian was a black Mage, which it used many of the places where he lived. However, when he tried to extend his spell on a simple girl-hristanku Ustin′û (Greek-Iustinu), she not only survived, but also strength their faith has prompted Cyprian end černokniž′em, to accept Christianity, become a priest and carry the word of God to people. For this he was later betrayed by the Romans tortured and executed. In this church the relics of two great Christian Saints as well as the miraculous icon of St. Cyprian, it is believed that the worship of relics and miraculous icon helps resist the sorcery and corruption. This is the prayer for the cessation of all spells, protection from the evil eye, evil words, envy and magic priests in church reading over the pilgrims. In the Church is the amazing beauty of the year 1818 carved iconostasis icons of the early 16th century. The earlier frescoes in General not preserved-they replaced by magnificent works of contemporary Orthodox artists from Russia. You will feel it immediately when you look at them-what distinguishes them from the Byzantine style, first of all, the softness and the smoothness of the lines, the absence of sharp contrast, some clearness. In the Church are two priest-Father Savvas and Father Cyprian. If you'll be in church with Pilgrim trip or excursion with the Orthodox, then, to learn that you are from Russia, they will accept you. You will immediately realize that this patriarchal rural Orthodox priest: he is the spiritual mentor and the person to whom you can come and share their joy and sorrow. Simple in communication, both the priest not only will give you blessings and will read a prayer, but also willing to treat you coffee, will discuss the latest news, take photos with you.

  • Visited the shrine with a child 3 years. The road from Pafos takes about 3 hours, we rode on cars previously visiting the monastery of Kykkos. The temple is very beautiful inside. Here you read prayers for cleansing from spoilage, evil eye, Voodoo-priest is reading the prayer from 8.00 to 12.30 and from 16.00 to 18.00. You then need to venerate the relics of St. Cyprian, take cotton with oil. On site you can dial the holy water.

  • Even a couple of years ago Christians visited rare this place. And now a dozen buses daily brings in need of relieve whammy and damage. Before the Church served two priests, and now their number increased significantly. Council to come by car early (until 10 a.m.) or later (after 17).
