From http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAct ... anguage=en

..."The Cypriot city of Paphos was recommended today for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2017 by an independent selection panel. The other Cypriot city in contention was Nicosia. On 24 August, the independent panel proposed Aarhus (Denmark) to be the other European Capital of Culture for 2017 (IP/12/913). The formal nomination of both winning cities by the EU's Council of Ministers will take place in May 2013..."

Congrats Paphos. Has always been underrated.
Whatever the criteria was, it must have been fair.
Nicosia hasn't got the money for bribery. :lol:
