Profile

Kyrenia is one of the nine Municipalities of Cyprus that are under Turkish occupation since 1974. Inhabited before the 12th Century BC, Kyrenia has been mentioned in historical sources by many variations of its name, and has endured under many conquerors that all left a mark on its landscape. The Municipality itself was founded in 1878. Kyrenia has been working on European projects in the areas of citizenship (twinnings) and culture. Kyrenia is member to the “Mayors for Peace” organization (http://www.mayorsforpeace.org/) and to “The Ancient Greek Mediterranean Trading Ports Association”, as well as  to the E.G.T.C Amphictyony network (www.amphictyony.gr). We are interested in new partnerships as well as participating in projects on the themes of citizenship and culture.
