We are immensely proud that our city has been awarded the title “European Capital of Culture” for 2017, and that Thanos Hotels is a Gold Sponsor of Pafos 2017. An exciting line-up of events, celebrations and initiatives is about to unfold – and our celebrated location puts us, and you our guests, in the heart of all the inspiring action. Much like bygone agora days, Pafos’ public spaces will be transformed into a grand stage: a ‘living museum of visual arts’. The motto for Pafos 2017 is ‘The Open-Air Factory’: an immersive framework that encourages an openness of locations, living, thinking, community, and expression. Showcasing and celebrating our city’s heritage, the events encourage co-creation and experience. Inspiring music, dance, art and theatre awaits – in some quite unexpected locations – so be sure to factor Pafos into your vacation plans for 2017!
