Who said Ayia Napa is dead in the winter? Just because the end of summer has arrived means Agia Napa becomes deserted. Do the locals want to rest for the whole of winter?
To help promote Ayia Napa in the coming winter months and in association with the Cyprus Tourism Organisation as usual, the local council has announced a full programme to cover not just the Holiday period but the whole of winter season until the end of March.
All events will be free of charge and take place in the Ayia Napa Municipal Conference Hall, a modern complex in the Centre of Ayia Napa.
The first event was on the 27th October starting at 8pm (20.00hrs) with events continuing every Thursday onwards until the end of the Cultural programme on Thursday 29th March 2012.
