The international student community of European University Cyprus has enjoyed a visit to one of the most beautiful villages of Cyprus –Lofou…The students attended the famous Palouze Festival .
The President of the Lofou Council Mr. Nikos Spyrou welcomed students and University representatives to the village. He presented a brief history of the village and wished everyone a productive and fulfilling Academic year.
At Lofou village EUC students enjoyed a variety of traditional dances and songs, received a guided tour and strolled around the Village, where they also visited the church of the Village and a traditional Cypriot house. They also tested traditional products and delights such as resi, Cyprus cheese, trachana, Cypriot herbs and all the products that are produced from grapes such as Palouze, Soutzoukos and kiofteria. A pleasant surprise was the fact that the international students were able to witness the hand making process for the “vourka” the shippermans “bag” that keeps his water and lunch in cool temperatures.
