General shops such as supermarkets will close at 6pm on Good Friday and Easter Saturday and will remain closed on Easter Sunday and Monday.
Specialty shops such as clothing and shoe stores are allowed to remain open, so those wishing to cross over to shop on Ledra Street may very well do so.
Visitors to the city centre will be able to enjoy free municipal parking on certain days in the run up to Easter.
Municipal parking lots and parking spaces will be free on the April 8-9 weekend as well as on Good Friday and Easter Saturday.
