Aglantzia is an urban municipality situated in the central part of Cyprus next to the capital Nicosia. The history of Aglantzia dates back as far as 3888 B.C., but the Municipality itself was founded in May 1986. The town has a population of 23,000 and its economy is mainly based on the Services sector (The University of Cyprus, the National television and many banks have their bases in Aglantzia). Aglantzia has been working on European projects, mainly in the field of intelligent energy. Our Municipality is well known for its Cultural Centre, the campus of the University of Cyprus and its Music festivals. The “Skali” Cultural Centre is the most dynamic work of the Municipality, which constitutes the basic infrastructure for Aglantzia cultural upgrading. It is the pride of the Municipality and constitutes the cultural identity of Aglantzia and a reference for all Cyprus. It succeeded in its aim and mission, which is the qualitative cultural offer to the citizens, the revival of old Aglantzia and the communication with the broader society. We are interested in new partnerships for projects in the field of culture, e-government and the environment.
