The Embassy of the Republic of Cyprus in Moscow is housed in one of the first stone-built buildings that were built by Russian merchants and industrialists on Povarskaya Street in the mid-nineteenth century.
The first owner of the house was E. Dunker, spouse of the engineer K. Dunker who constructed the pipes transporting water from Mytistchi to the Russian capital. During the renovation of the building, frescoes of the well-known painter Mikhail Vrubel were found, which are now kept in the Russian Museum of St. Petersburg and the gallery of the city of Omsk.
The Embassy is located at a central part of Moscow, not far from the Kremlin and the State Duma. Povarskaya Street is off Novi Arbat Avenue, near the Metro Station Arbatskaya.
The Church of St. Simeon is less than 100 m from the Embassy, while right next to it is the Embassy of Norway.
Apart from the Embassy and the Ambassador's Residence, the building also houses the Consulate, the Office of the Cyprus Tourism Organization and the Commercial Section.
