Taking Your Cyprus Holiday in June? Then Come Along To The Cypriot-Russian Festival
If you’re taking a holiday in Cyprus at the beginning of June, you’ve chosen a fantastic time of the year to visit. The weather in Cyprus during the summer is simply wonderful, with hot temperatures and abundant sunshine. Not only is the weather appealing, there are a wide range of events held across the island in June, including the Cypriot-Russian festival held in the beautiful coastal town of Limassol.
For the sixth year running, in order to promote strong relations between the two countries, the Russian Embassy to Cyprus and the Russian newspaper ”Vestnik Kipra” have teamed up with Limassol Municipality to organise this fantastic event.
The Cypriot-Russian festival will be held on the 4th June 2011, following the success of previous years. For both locals and visitors taking a holiday in Cyprus, this is a chance to enjoy a range of performances, concerts and exhibitions, finishing with a bang thanks to a climatic firework display at the end of the night.
Cyprus Holidays – Cultural Experiences
Mayor of Limassol, Andreas Christou, is committed to supporting the Cypriot-Russian festival, stating that in addition to strengthening bonds between the countries, it is also of great importance in regards to the municipality’s bid to become the European Culture Capital in 2017.
Russian Ambassador, Vyacheslav Shumskiy, also commented on the significance of the event and the importance of using these opportunities to bring people from different cultures together, observing that “…economic and political relations are not enough.”
If you’re on holiday in Cyprus and staying in or around the Limassol area at the time of the festival, the event kicks off at 3 p.m. with the opening ceremony scheduled for 7 o’clock. Feel free to join in and come along to the exhibitions and concerts and make sure you stay around for the highlight of the event at 9 p.m. – a performance by Russian pop stars, Reflex.
