In Cyprus, there are consumer goods marketplaces and flea markets with vintage items and rare junk, among which one can find something valuable. The best flea market is in the center of Larnaca. It works only on Sundays - the most traditional bazaar day - from 10 am to 1 am. Right here, Cypriot craftsmen from the villages bring their handmade goods - embroidery, leather goods, ceramics, and jewelry. Just imagine, these people mastered their crafts following their fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers. Traditions are strong in Cyprus, and there are still whole dynasties of artisans whose mastership has developed for centuries. One can visit the market in Larnaca just like a museum, plunging into the atmosphere of Cyprus and trying local sweets and delicacies.
