Cyprus' tulipsIn April one of the most colorful festivals in Cyprus is held  – the Tulip Festival. The centre of the festival is a village’s field located 20 km from Paphos. The village is famous for its vineyards, almond and apricot orchards, but what brought great fame to it is the tulips, which are the true pride of the local residents.

Polemi (Polemi) and the nearby village Stroumbi are the only places in Cyprus, which grow wild tulips in abundance. They are bright red in color, with a characteristic elongated shape of the petals and a black spot with a yellow border in the middle. Because of this unusual color, these tulips are called “flowers with sun-shine eyes”. The first red leaved flowers appear at the end of March and the beginning of May almost all tulips wither.

They say that the flowers were brought to Cyprus in the Ottoman period. Then it was a lucrative business: the flowers were grown for export to other countries, including the Netherlands. The Association for the Protection of tulips is now established  in Polemi, preserving plants and renting areas from the village to grow whole fields of flowers.

As a rule, the festival is held in mid-April. The program of the festival includes music and dances at the central village square, a festive meal and a walk in the valley of the roses.
