Kythrea is one of the 9 Municipalities of Cyprus that are under Turkish occupation since 1974 and is located just 10 km northeast of the capital Nicosia, on the foothills of Pendadaktylos mountain. Once the Kingdom of Chytroi it took its name from its founder, King Chytros, leader of the Greeks who came and settled in Cyprus after the Trojan war. The towns history dates back to the 12th century B.C. With the spread of Christianity in Cyprus, Chytroi became the official seat of a bishop. The most glorious bishop was St. Demetrianos, who was born, raised and accomplished great deeds in Kythrea. We are interested in new partnerships related to culture and town twinnings.
