Cyprus is located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sean, close to Syria, Turkey and Lebanon. The culture of Cyprus has been defined by the West, but its geographical position between Europe, Asia and Africa has moulded Cyprus’s character, giving it an evident eastern element.
Cyprus’s had a long and turbulent history; having gone from the hands of one country to another’s, a permanent reason of arguing between Greece and Turkey that resulted in the invasion of Turkey and subsequent division of land and people that happened in 1974, the population of Cyprus consists of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots.
The southern part of Cyprus, officially recognised as the Republic of Cyprus, has a population of 839,000, while the unofficial self-declared Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has 300,000 permanent residents.
Nevertheless, the atmosphere across the island of Cyprus is more than friendly, attracting more and more visitors each year, who cannot wait to emerge into the history, culture, cuisine and natural beauty of Cyprus!
Warm and pleasant climate all-year-round, dreamy beaches and a fabulous Cypriot cuisine with eastern influences are just some of the treats you get when visiting Cyprus. The rest remain to be discovered in your own journey to Cyprus!
Cyprus’s main airport is the airport of Larnaca (Larnaca International Airport – Διεθνής Αερολιμένας Λάρνακας). It is located 5 kilometres south of Larnaca and is accessible by bus.
The second largest airport of Cyprus is the airport of Paphos (Paphos International Airport - Διεθνής Αερολιμένας Πάφου), located 6.5 kilometres northeast of Paphos and accessible by bus.
Getting around Cyprus
You can get around Cyprus using the extensive bus network of the island. Fares start from 1.50€ and minimum taxi fare costs from 3.42€ to around 4.50€.
- Larnaca: One of the oldest inhabited cities in the world, Larnaca combines East and West and offers a unique blend of people and cultures. A fine base to explore the rest of Cyprus, Larnaca is lined with dreamy beaches and boasts a wide variety of cultural and religious sites, beautiful spots of natural beauty, as well as lots of traditional Cypriot dining options.
- Paphos: Stretching at the southwestern side of Cyprus, the whole district of Paphos is perched just below the foothills of the Troodos Mountains. Paphos has the cosmopolitan feeling of a popular summer resort, the serenity of nature and the majesty of ancient history and heritage.
Must-have experiences in Paphos? Seeing the “Aphrodite’s Rock” or “Petra tou Romiou” (The Stone of the Greek) and imagining Aphrodite herself emerging from the sea at the time of her birth, visiting the Sanctuary of Aphrodite in Kouklia and the cave of the Baths of Aphrodite and wandering around the Archaeological Park of Paphos, a wonderful network of ancient buildings, temples, Roman villas and mosaics.
- Ayia Napa: The “Holy Forest”, as this city’s archaic name implies, Ayia Napa is probably Cyprus’s most popular destination, for many reasons. Apart from its long “tradition” as a top nightlife destination in the Mediterranean, Ayia Napa is also popular among families and visitors that are keener on experiencing the quieter side of Cyprus. Quaint fishing villages, fantastic beaches and a great wealth of historic and cultural attractions await you in the further region around Ayia Napa.
- Limassol: The second largest city of Cyprus, photogenic Limassol is a 15-kilometre-long paradise of beaches, archaeological treasures, historic locations and world-class dining and nightlife! Cyprus’s hidden gem is slowly but steadily revealing itself – visit soon, before the others know!
- Nicosia: Cyprus’s capital, Nicosia displays a two-sided charm. Steeped in history, this is the world’s only divided capital left, after the fall of the Berlin Wall. On one side, you have the modern capital of the Republic of Cyprus, with modern buildings, museums and fine restaurants; on the other side, you have North Nicosia which is under Turkish occupation after the events that led to the Turkish invasion in 1974 and features a traditional Turkish feeling and a skyline dominated by mosques and bazaars.
The both of them stand inside Nicosia’s medieval walls, that rank among Europe’s best-preserved fortifications.
Cyprus’s official languages are Greek and Turkish, but English, French, German and Russian are widely spoken too.
