EBU Overseas Congress

We are pleased to be working in partnership with the EBU to provide carefully selected accommodation for their UK and overseas congresses. All overseas congresses have an exclusive Green and Blue pointed bridge programme, which can be booked directly with the EBU, once your accommodation is booked with First for Bridge. Please book via your EBU account, or call 01296 317203 to pay your Bridge fee and add participation in this Bridge programme to your package. For 2023 departures the EBU fee is NOW INCLUDED in the holiday cost. You no longer need to make a separate payment to the EBU for the Bridge services. The EBU will contact you to collect your entry details.

Join First for Bridge and the English Bridge Union for a fantastic week in picturesque Northern Cyprus. Whilst in Kyrenia, explore the magnificent harbour and beautiful architecture with winding backstreets full of surprises.
The five-star Merit Park Hotel is the venue for the EBU Kyrenia Cyprus Congress. It is beautifully situated overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Kervansaray on the outskirts of Kyrenia. The bridge congress will be held in the impressive Bellapais Meeting Hall, and in between sessions you can enjoy the excellent facilities this impressive hotel has to offer or take one of the frequent local buses into the historic harbourside town to explore.  Relax on the private beach area, walk through the beautiful gardens and around the coastline where there are plenty of seating areas where you can enjoy the views across the sea and mountains, or sip a cocktail by the outdoor pool. 

We also include two fascinating excursions in our package:
Experience a full-day tour of Kyrenia and its surrounding area where we visit St. Hilarion Castle, which inspired Walt Disney in the creation of the famous Snow White castle. The next stop is Abbey De La Bellepaix, a romantic abbey which is truly a stunning piece of Gothic architecture.
Our second half-day excursion takes us across the border point into Nicosia – the only divided capital in Europe. Our walking tour takes us from the old Girne city gate, past the Venetian Column and to the Selimiye Mosque. There will be time to shop in old Caravserai which is brimming with arts and craft shops and markets filled with spices, Turkish delights, lace, and other traditional souvenirs.
