Getting to know Larnaca- “Living with the Media: Sense and Sensibility”- Youth Exchange

In order to get to know more about the city, the participants of the “Living with the Media: Sense and Sensibility”, had to divide themselves in different groups and prepare some questions to ask the locals and tourists that would have met in the streets of Larnaca. With the help of their devices they have recorder and documented the following experiences.

Our questions:

Do you think Larnaca is a good place for young people to have fun?
Which places do you recommend for the city to have fun?
What kind of events takes place in Larnaca?
Here is a brief description of what people have told us.




“Having a coffee, going to the beach especially in the morning. At night probably we are going to local bars or pubs around here. It’s mostly a relaxing lifestyle”.


“Bars, clubs… In the summer we spend most of our time on the beach. In the winter everything is quieter. You can have a barbeque in the mountains- at Troodos”.

“Spend time with other girls from the Philippines, we chat, walk, cook together. Larnaca is a safe place”.


“I am working most of the time, so in my free time, I am playing on my phone, or on the computer”.

“During my free time, I play football, tennis or go to the gym”.


“We spend our free time by hanging out with friends.   

We are from Greece and we came to Cyprus to complete our army service. We are coming to Larnaca with intercity bus from Nicosia. We prefer to stay in Larnaca for the job instead of studies”.

  “Larnaca is the best city in Cyprus”.
