About Europe Direct Ledra Palace Area:

Europe Direct is located in the Home Gallery Building, opposite Home for Cooperation, within the UN Buffer Zone in Nicosia. The Centre is located at the Ledra Palace crossing point between the two sides of the Green Line providing easy access to all communities of the island. It aims to answer your questions in person and also hosts EU publications, materials, events and gatherings, transforming the Centre into a meeting point and a shared space.

The mission of Europe Direct Ledra Palace Area, in accordance with that of the Europe Direct Centres network, is to inform European citizens about the EU, in particular about the rights of EU citizens and the EU’s priorities. The centre will aim to promote participatory citizenship at a local and regional level and provide information on EU legislation and how this is being implemented in Cyprus. Information on the various EU programmes, grants and funding opportunities available to individuals and organisations in Cyprus will also be provided so as to increase opportunities for employment and education for citizens.

Within the framework of its operation, the Centre will organise a series of activities designed to inform citizens of the priorities of the EU and to celebrate its values.
