A.G. LEVENTIS GALLERY

The A. G. Leventis Gallery brings the grandeur of European art from the Renaissance to the 20th century to the heart of Nicosia, connecting the European continent with its south-eastern outpost by highlighting the unique relationship between art and its history. Art unfolds in a space where, regardless of their origin, artists contribute to a better understanding of their own achievements and of European art more generally.

The collections’ outstanding paintings and objets d’art date mostly from the 16th century to the 20th and offer a glimpse of the high points of Western painting.

They include a focus on Old Master paintings, Dutch still lifes, light-spirited Rococo pastorals, 18th-century Venetian views, the great masters of the Impressionist movement and boldly coloured Pointillist and Fauve canvases. In addition, the visitor can trace the development of modern Greek art, as well as the first generation of Cypriot Artists of the beginning of the 20th century.

These works also offer insights into the world of the man behind the collections: the world of Anastasios G. Leventis – the businessman, the visionary, the art collector, the true ‘citizen of the world’.

LEVENTIS MUNICIPAL MUSEUM OF NICOSIA

Boasting an exhibition area of approximately 3,000 square meters, contemporary equipment as well as specialized and dedicated personnel, the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia continues to lead amongst Cypriot Museums. A recipient of the European Museum of the Year Award for 1991, it remains to this day one of Europe’s most highly regarded Museums. Being the Historical Museum of Nicosia, Europe’s last divided capital, it draws on its collections and exhibits to present historical events, remark upon aspects of everyday life, validate facets and touch on wounds and glorious moments of the city’s centuries-long history and of Cyprus as a whole.

The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia constitutes one of the most popular poles of attraction for Nicosia’s permanent residents but also for its visitors. Today, whilst presenting events of the past, the Museum looks to the future with optimism.

LAIKI GITONIA

Laiki Geitonia is a traditional pedestrian neighbourhood inside the walled city of Lefkosia (Nicosia), with buildings that date back to the 18th century and serve as typical examples of traditional Cypriot urban architecture. The buildings are now used as residences, shops, tavernas and craft centres, having been restored and preserved. The popular neighbourhood area is located 200 metres east of Plateia Eleftherias and is ideal for exploring on foot.
