Provisions are to be added to current regulations to allow the carrying out of civil weddings at specified ancient monuments and museums at a specific fee and with a set number of people entitled to attend, the transport ministry said on Tuesday.
This is one of the proposed changes approved by Cabinet on Tuesday that will be sent to parliament for a vote.
Cabinet also approved a proposal to change regulations to allow free entrance to the 12 museums run by the antiquities department.
These are: the Cyprus Museum; the Ethnological Museum (Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios Mansion); the local Ethnological Museum Fikardou; the local Archaeological Museum of Ancient Idalion and site; the Cyprus Railroads Museum Evrychou; Larnaca district Archaeological Museum; the local Ethnological Museum of Traditional Embroidery and Silverwork Lefkara; Limassol district Archaeological Museum; the local Archaeological Museum Curium; Paphos district Archaeological Museum; the Popular Art Museum Yeroskipou and the local Archaeological Museum Marion-Arsinoe Polis Chrysochous.
The proposal would also amend regulations to add two population groups to those entitled to free entrance at museums and ancient monuments – families with three children and pensioners.
