Tour to Athienou village
Kallinikeio: Municipal Museum of Athienou

The creation of the Kallinikeio Municipal Museum of Athienou was a matter of time for the municipality, a place rich in cultural heritage, whose existence is dated back to the ancient times. The Museum, which is distinguished for its modern architecture, was named after monk Kallinikos Stavrovouniotis, a son and benefactor of Athienou and an excellent icon painter.

The inauguration ceremony of the Museum was held on July 3rd 2009 and performed by the honourable Minister of Communications and Works Mr. Nicos Nicolaides.

The Museum consists of the Archaeological Collection, the Collection of Ecclesiastical Art and the Ethnographic Collection. It is housed in the Kallinikeio Municipal Hall of Athienou along with the municipality of the town.

The aim of the exhibition areas of the Museum is to operate as a centre of communication with the visitors, as a source of knowledge for both adults and children, to bring back memories of the past, to attract tourists and to give people the opportunity to become aware of our local and national history and culture.

Cypriot Souvlaki Dinner

Souvlaki was made famous by the Greeks but Cyprus has its own version, which is probably the most popular "fast food" on the island. And when we say fast food, don't think unhealthy. Cypriot souvlaki is actually one of the lowest fat foods you can have! Cypriot souvlaki is a very simple meal and consists of 2-3 skewers of grilled pieces of pork or chicken inside Cypriot pita bread and usually also includes tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley and sometimes onion and cabbage. Cypriots usually squeeze lemon over the souvlaki to add acidity and more taste.

We will walk from the hotel to the nearby "Vlachos Tavern" for souvlaki. Estimated walking time is around 15 minutes.
