Two new videos made in collaboration with the University of Nicosia, UNESCO Chair, and Mediazone highlight the beautiful traditional handicrafts, vibrant cultural celebrations, as well as valuable knowledge and skills passed down from generation to generation in Cyprus.

Titled “Safeguarding Cultural Heritage, Imagining the Future”, the first video takes viewers on a beautiful journey of lace-making traditions in the picturesque villages of Omodos and Koilani, while the second offers a glimpse of the vibrant annual Carnival celebrations in Limassol (Lemesos), the second-largest city in Cyprus.

The videos were created as a part of the recent publication “Intangible Cultural Heritage – National Inventory”.

To watch the videos log on to UNESCO.
