Medieval Festival, Ayia Napa, Cyprus (Bakchus)
7. – 14. 10. 2017
The Medieval Festival was first celebrated in Ayia Napa in 2006. It has since become an annual festival and is celebrated with a series of events and activities aiming to explore and learn more about the medieval ages. These celebrations are created with historical accuracy and they function as narrative representations of the everyday life of the people in the contemporary period. The participation of European and Russian groups has established the Medieval Festival as an international festival which Ayia Napa is proud to host. After 11 successful years of celebrating the Medieval Festival, the event has become very well known internationally and fulfils all the criteria for cooperation with other festivals of its kind. All events take place within the Medieval Monastery of Ayia Napa where the structure forms a natural setting which enhances the thematic aspects of the medieval period.
