Nicosia, a mediterreranean creative destination 

Nicosia will be promoted at FITUR as a labelled Creative Friendly Destination.

The capital of Cyprus received this label from the Creative Tourism Network®, both for its creative offer and its innovative and sustainable vision of tourism.

Indeed, the city of Nicosia is highlighting among Mediterranean destinations for its sustainable model that relies on program and campaigns like Ngage – a brand that promotes Nicosia as a creative industries cluster and a creative destination – or WAST – Support Young Women in Alternative and Sustainable Tourism – which bets on sustainable and inclusive tourism models, based on creative industries and communities’ empowerments.

A unique creative offer: 

Nicosia is a cosmopolitan city, rich in history and culture that combines its historic past with a modern city’s attractiveness.

Nicosia hosted over time the various art forms that had been cultivated across the island, particularly goldsmithing, silversmithing, and ceramics.

Key initiatives have been taken by the Nicosia Tourism Board aiming at keeping alive old art techniques, as to boost and strengthen the local creative sector, both in the city, and in the charming villages located in its surroundings, like Fikardou, which is a flagship for crafts and Christmas traditions. 

Nicosia also hosts an incredible art scene. In recent years, an exceptional yeast of young, creative, and passionate artists has emerged and introduced to the public establishing the city’s contemporary cultural and creative scene.

Design, fashion, crafts, performing arts, music, video, publishing are some of the main productive pillars, which are promoted by the Municipality through the “Capital’s Creative Business Quarter” by which many abandoned venues are been restored to be given to artists and creative entities. 

Que ce soit en B2B ou B2C, Nicosie propose une offre de tourisme créatif unique tout au long de l’année et pour les publics les plus divers: de backpackers au premium, en passant par le MICE, women travellers, single, seniors, millennials, foodies, to name but a few.
