Welcome to the Nisyrian Studies Society

The Nisyrian studies' society establishes in 1961 in Athens, in order to protect and promote every historic and folkloric element with regards to our home island. It is all Society Members' conviction that it is an obligation and fulfilment of a holy debt of honour towards their Nisyrians ancestors to absolutely preserve what they created because this is the intellectual wealth and heritage which they will bequeath to the newer generation. Therefore, any effort and any exertion to this direction are imperative.
