Hello everybody,

Vania Vrondi’s School is a little bit different. It is the only one that continuously succeed to bring parents, children and teachers together into one purpose. Professional evolution. A lesson does not stop immediately after the time is finished. Vania Vrondi is preoccupied to give children a reason for practice, for learning, to become better, a reason to dream. As the Russian Professional Art School in Cyprus is meant to pursue its results through the Art Devotion Performing and Creative Center, a nonprofit organization meant to help artists to reach their main goal: The Stage!



Vania Vrondi started the school in 1998 by introducing Cyprus into the marvelous Art of Classical Russian Ballet.  Being graduated of one of the most prestigious ballet schools in Russia:  Classical Ballet and Choreography at MA University of Moscow GITIS she devoted herself into teaching Vaganova ballet method to all children passionate of the classical ballet. And there are not so many Ballet schools in Cyprus that dears to do so as this requires more serious work, more passionate desire for dance and why not an open ear to one of the most beautifully classical pieces of music.



Children responded by joining the Ballet classes with desire to learn, practice as real professional ballet dancers.  Here we can mention just a few of the International Competitions won by Vania's students:

Vania did not stop dreaming and she decided that her students want and deserve much more.

All passionate ballet lovers joined these classes benefit by the lessons of the Experienced Russian Teachers!

Learning about bees, in the perfect trip for schools & kindergartens

Ecophysis is located in Vavla village – close by Choirokoitia Neolithic Settlement or Lefkara village the place where Ecophysis organize experiential/educational activities in the sectors of beekeeping, natural environment and tasting of fresh local products. Moreover, Ecophysis produce "VAVLA" honey and other hive products.





Their aim is to offer the perfect environment for a lesson in the nature about bees and natural products – a lesson that can fit perfectly into the curriculum of Elementary Schools.
More specific, Ecophysis' experiential activities promote positive attitude towards protecting the environment, the procedures of preparing food that are given to us by nature and the development of the spirit of curiosity, controversy and research away from superstitions and dogmatisms.
Children will walk away with a better understanding of the importance of honey bees and why their survival is so important, and see firsthand why bees aren’t near as scary as many of us think! Watch honey bees at work creating honey, witness as new bees are ‘born’, and learn more about what you can do to help the health and survival of this vital species.

The cost of participation depends on the preferred package of activities and the number of students attending. The bigger the number of attending students, the lower the cost. The maximum number of students we can have on each excursion is 110 children and the minimum cost is 2 euro/child.
The tours are 100% secure both for kids and adults. The beekeeper's suits of all sizes can provide perfect security against bee stings, but the chances of that happening are minimal if everybody follows the guidelines given by the highly trained personnel. In case of an accident of any kind, there is a First Aid trained person always on site and a First Aid Kit as well.

Russian and Romanian Orthodox churches a place where children are invited!

Hello everybody,

An invitation made by Kids Fun in Cyprus to visit the new Russian Orthodox Church that opened in March 2017 situated close to the Romanian Orthodox Church will be very easy to do! A large, marvelous garden with a big playground for all children to play it is just one more reason to enjoy this visit relaxed and happy, as parents and kids will really love it!





The playground offers swings for babies and children, slides, climbing area, roundabout and special swings and play area for disabled children as well. Lots of benches for parents and a kiosk, a perfect environment makes this place a special one to enjoy a family day.






The Russian Church, under the patronage of St. Andrew and All Russian Saints, was built in a Russian style, and it is unique in Cyprus. The new church boasts five gold domes which arrived from St. Petersburg. The central dome, weighing nearly eight tons, was placed on the church on July 7, 2016. Made of titanium nitride, which requires less maintenance than gold, and a small quantity of actual gold to create the desired color, the domes had been shipped to Cyprus in pieces and then put together at the bishopric by Russian experts brought to the country especially for the purpose.







The church holds 400 people and is to be surrounded by a large hillside garden, pavilions, a reception area, a park for disabled children with special games for those who have mobility problems, and Byzantine-style fountains of Holy Water. The “Route of Russian Holiness” with mosaics of Russian Saints will also be built.





The Romanian Orthodox Church close by, will surprise every visitor by the unique - wood work- , “Maramuresan” architecture, a style that may be encountered only in the most beautiful north region of Romania - Maramures.





 The church has been built by Romanian craftsmen and the wood used in the buildings was brought from original “Maramuresan”’s old houses.







The church is surrounded by two Maramuresan style houses that are used one as a kindergarten for Romanian children and the other a canteen for disadvantaged people.






Two beautiful churches close to each other succeed to offer an amazing place to worship for everybody that would visit them and also a unique opportunity to meet in Cyprus two different orthodox cultures.







Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot lizard!
