Restoration of Cyprus’ cultural heritage

To restore cultural heritage in Cyprus, Switzerland will contribute 91,000 euros, as part of the close cooperation between the two countries in culture, according to a press release from the Swiss Embassy in Nicosia. This will enable the Byzantine Museum of the Archbishop Makarios III Foundation, to restore ancient icons, frescoes and mosaics.

The cooperation has previously contained an agreement on the repatriation of antiquities dating from prehistoric times to 1500 AD, and a project to digitise and document movable cultural goods stemming from North Cyprus.
