Cyprus has submitted five new nominations to the Unesco list of Intangible Cultural Heritage, according to an announcement of the Cypriot national committee of Unesco after a meeting that took place on March 8.

The nominations concern the Loukoumi Geroskipou – a type of Cypriot delight – the Cypriot wine and the traditional recipes of ‘moughra’, a jellified cauliflower dish, and ‘krambosoupa’, a cabbage soup, as far as food items are concerned.

The remaining two nominations regard the cultural events of ‘Poulaki’ and ‘Vasilis’, and the ‘Ayia Irini Megalomartiras’ festival.

An intangible cultural heritage is a practice, representation, expression, knowledge, or skill considered by Unesco to be part of a place’s cultural heritage.

Buildings, historic places, traditional dishes, monuments and artifacts are cultural property. Intangible heritage also consists of nonphysical intellectual wealth, such as folklore, customs, beliefs, traditions, knowledge, and language.
