A cultural gem has opened its doors in the heart of Nicosia with all kinds of art gifts inside and you should pay it a visit. Naturally, I'm referring to A. G. Leventis Gallery which has brought new life in a lately forgotten part of Nicosia and is the newest endeavor of the A. G. Leventis Foundation which is well known, both in Cyprus and overseas, for its support of the arts, education and culture building on the vision of its founder A. G. Leventis.
A. G. Leventis the art lover that he was, managed to obtain magnificent works of art during his lifetime which are now the permanent exhibitions at the Gallery. The art exhibited has been separated in three categories: The Greek Collection which includes work of Greek artists ranging from the 19th to the 20th century, The Paris Collection which is European Art formerly held at A. G. Leventis' home in Paris and The Cyprus Collection which holds work of the first generation of artists in Cyprus as well as some of the second generation.
It is a beautiful and welcoming establishment, modern and technologically advanced with nothing to envy from its international equivalents. It's a must see for children because it is never too early to be introduced to exquisite art and the entrance fee is only €2 making it affordable for every family or unemployed art lover.
The Gallery is perfectly accompanied by a lovely restaurant on the ground floor offering food, drinks and desserts. And when you're done, don't forget to go by the gift shop and get yourself a memorabilia of your art filled day.
