“Ktima Demetriou” was created by Kyriacos Demetriou in 1984 as a communication and relaxation mean with nature.
The great love and nostalgia of the owner’s childhood in Cyprus led to the creation of a unique space, where traditional objects from the beginning of 19th century were gathered and housed in order to be protected from time.
The scope of “Ktima Demetriou” is the perfect protection and maintenance of these traditional objects, and the transmittal of the rich Cypriot history, culture and heritage to both the younger people of our island of Cyprus and other nationalities.
“Ktima Demetriou” can be found close to the Anglisides village in Larnaca area with a great view at Stavrovouni Monastery (it is one of the oldest monasteries in the world) and is presented as „Cyprus tradition in one place…“. “Ktima Demetriou” opened its gate to public on June 1st, 2015.
“Ktima Demetriou” includes a museum with objects from the different professional disciplines of Cyprus, the museum of woman, museum of glass objects, traditional coffee shop / tavern, wine cellar and winery, traditional house, a series of old olive oil mills, flour mill, coffee shop, souvenir shop and many more!
