Deryneia is located on the north-east side of Cyprus, close to the city of Ammochostos, also commonly known as Famagusta in English.
Deryneia was seriously damaged by the Turkish invasion around 1974, which caused 75% of the land to be occupied. Kato Deryneia parish, the beach, the best agricultural part and the industrial zone are all situated on the occupied, northern part of our town.
Deryneia’s population is estimated to be 8,000 people and the town borders include those of Ammochostos, Paralimni, Sotira Municipalities and the communities of Frenaros and Agios Georgios Acheritou-Vrysoulon.
Our aim as new elected mayor and town council is to move forward through development and progress, as well as continuous efforts to establish a better life quality for our fellow citizens.
Our main concern and aim is to turn this town into an environmentally friendly, innovative and progressive place through foundations and social consistency.
We are ready to cater to the modern needs of our people as far as education, health and social prosperity are concerned and regarding employment, culture, sport and environment.
Andros G. Karayiannis
