The whole harbour city of Pafos is UNESCO heritage listed. Of course the archaeological places are must-seen-sights, but in spite of the touristic attractiveness Pafos stays a part of a divided island: located in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, geographically belonging to Asia, politically to Europe, split into a Turkish northern and a Greek southern part. Under the motto „LINKING CONTINENTS – BRIDGING CULTURES“ Pafos wanted to overcome borders through culture to bring continents closer again to each other. One of the main projects in 2017 was the „Open Air Factory“ - with its more than 300 local and international art and culture events in public space where inhabitants and visitors could participate in common. In times like ours this seems more important than ever!
