Cultural Centre of Occupied Famagusta

Cultural Centre of Occupied Famagusta

The Cultural Centre of Occupied Famagusta was built in 1998 on the demarcation line near the Street Barricade of  Deryneia and hosts the anti-occupation events of the Municipality of Famagusta and other Bodies and Organizations.

At the site of the Cultural Center a canteen and an observatory is operated. Visitors can borrow binoculars to look at our beloved city and almost all our occupied land from a distance.

In the Centre's multipurpose hall video-films about Famagusta are shown to the multitudes of foreigners who visit the center daily, as well as to pupils of schools of Primary and Secondary Education, which incorporate the visit of the Cultural Center in their educational excursions programs.

Organized art exhibitions (photography, painting, sculpture, etc.) and other cultural events also take place at the centre, both indoors and during the summer months outdoors, in the small amphitheater. The spaces of the Centre are also used for holding seminars, congresses, conferences, etc.

Information material in various languages is available free for visitors and guests.
