With Autumn upon us the next public holiday is just days away. The Republic of Cyprus will celebrate the 59th anniversary since the declaration of its independence, next Tuesday, 1st October 2019. As is usual with this public holiday you can expect to see military & student parades across the island.

Later in the month, on Monday 28th October, there will be another public holiday this time to celebrate Ochi Day. The day marks the anniversary of the day the Greek leader Ioannis Metaxas rejected the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Mussolini on October 28th 1940, when he demanded that Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy certain unspecified "strategic locations" or otherwise face war.

Ochi Day is celebrated throughout Greece, Cyprus and the Greek communities around the world.
