    A visit to Lefkara will be completed if you come to the nearby village of Skarinou and visit the Wax Museum which has 150 wax images, all figures from main historical events. It is a private collection in reality.

    I found it very interesting on my recent visit to the island and I strongly recommend it. The visitor here will get a historical view of the culture of Cyprus throughout the years.

    How to get here:
    Fatsa Wax Museum is situated in the village of Skarinou only 100 yards from the motorway exit Skarinou-Lefkara.

    Opening Hours:
    9:00 t0 17:30 in Winter from 1st October until 31st March and
    9:00 t0 18:30 in Summer from 1st April until 30th September.

    Tickets:
    €5.00 euro Standard, €3.50 euro for Children 6-12 years old
    €3.00 euro for organised groups

    You can pre-book in case of a big group.

    Mr. Pambos Nicolaides is the owner of the Museum, and he has a nice restaurant/coffee shop as well where you can rest and get something to eat.

    Kato Drys- A beautiful Nearby Village

    The beautiful village of Kato Drys
    2 more images

    The beautiful village of Kato Drys is a few kms from Lefkara.
    It is a significant village worth visiting for its architecture and fine style.
    The majority of buildings in Kato Drys exhibit rural architecture, with hanging balconies as well as doors and windows carved in relief.

    I recently visited this beautiful village and stayed at the House of Gabriel and Eleni Papachristoforou. The museum is housed in a restored house with remarkable woodwork, -an example of the 19th century architecture. It was the house were Gabriel grew up and it belonged to his grandfather.

    It is the birthplace of Agios Neofytos, (born in 1134). An interesting church to visit there is the church of Agios Charalambos.
    Visit the Rural Museum.- 1 euro entrance

    I was with 65 other ladies coming from Holland that day all travel agents.
    It was a great experience for me, and I had the opportunity to get acqauinted with a few of the ladies that day.

    After a competition that took place in Larnaca, the girls came to Lefkara where several games took place, and then we all left for Tochni.

    The event took place the 13th November 2010.
    (Can you spot me in the photo)? First row the first on the right hand corner.
