More than 1,000 wedding reservations have already been made in the resort of Ayia Napa
Wedding tourism on the Island of Aphrodite – Cyprus, is recovering after two failed years due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is also one of the options for alternative tourism, through which the Mediterranean country seeks to attract more guests, BNR reported.
The upcoming wedding season in Cyprus is expected to be successful, surpassing even the record pre-pandemic 2019 for tourism on the island, according to optimistic of the most preferred municipalities for wedding ceremonies.
Reservations for more than 1,000 weddings have already been made in the municipality of Ayia Napa, a famous resort on the east coast of the island.
There are more than the number of marriages in 2019, when they were 900. In the pandemic 2020 on the Cypriot coast of the Mediterranean, only 100 couples said their “yes”, and last year they were about 350.
Most of the wedding guests who will welcome Ayia Napa this year are from Lithuania, Estonia and Poland.
Paphos, on the west coast of the island, which is another popular wedding destination, is also preparing for many newlyweds, traditionally mostly from the UK. Due to the pandemic, a number of their wedding reservations from 2021 have been transferred to this year.
The island of Aphrodite is one of the leading European wedding destinations. The wedding industry is a significant business in Cyprus and an important source of income for municipalities.
