The Nicosia municipality along with the volunteer group ‘Lefkosiazo’ will transform the main Makarios Avenue into a ‘Christmas Avenue’

Meanwhile, the Pop Up Festival continues at the City Plaza on Makarios Avenue in Nicosia, the event runs until December 24 and is hoping to highlight local talent and to help revitalise the captial.
