I like icons, always did. And even more so since the vagaries of life turned me into a Greek Melkite Catholic. Spending a month a year in Greece for the last 15 years didn't hurt, either. This introduction only serves to explain that we understand and enjoy icons. This collection contains only great icons, beautifully presented. Most churches in Greek Cyprus just have a few good icons, and the surviving ones in Turkish Cyprus only contain junk, all the good stuff having been looted and whisked away to Switzerland or the US. So this museum is a treat. We visited with a group and skipped the art galleries, and I have no idea what we missed there. But we were delighted with the icons! The bad news: no photos, and they watch you.
