About country Gallery Where to stay

Most tourist sector representatives call Cyprus the best-kept secret of the Mediterranean - due to the lack of advertising, most travellers have to come to it on their own.

The number of fans this country has is rapidly increasing. The most likely reasons for this are the 326 annual days of sunshine and cheap flights by budget airlines such as Ryanair and Wizz Air.

Every year Cyprus hosts grape and wine festivals with masks and parades. The locals pride themselves in their semi-hard halloumi cheese, the specific taste of which they’re determined to preserve at any cost.

Let’s not also forget the Troodos Mountains, situated at the centre of the island, that become covered in snow during winter. The highest peak of Troodos is the 1952 metre-high Mount Olympus.

The most famous place in Cyprus is the Petra tou Romiou (Rock of the Greek), located between Paphos and Limassol, where, according to legend, the Greek goddess of love and fertility Aphrodite was born.

Since 1974 the country has been split in two - the Greek part and the Turkish part, which is the reason why going to the Northern section of Cyprus requires a visa. The two sides are different from each other as day and night - the mere fact that only the Greek part became a member of the European Union says a lot.

Northern Cyprus has its own money, government, license plate numbers, mobile networks, etc., as if it were an autonomous country.

Regardless of the disagreements between these two nations, Cyprus is thought to be one of the safest countries in the world - crime rates here are so low that local people usually don’t even lock their doors at night.

If you’re looking for a place to party, look no further - the Ayia Napa Resort, called by some the second Ibiza, hosts many cafés, bars, night clubs and beaches. The most popular of the latter is called Nissi. Here you can not only go sunbathing, but also try various forms of water entertainment: water skiing, windsurfing, diving, canoeing and high-speed boats.

Cyprus offers many forms of transportation – buses, taxis, and cars and bicycles for rent. Another popular means of transit is via ferries which go between different ports within Cyprus and various islands in the Mediterranean. If you decide on renting a car, don’t forget that traffic in Cyprus moves on the left-hand side.

Before leaving the island, make sure to visit the Kyrenia Harbour, the Kykkos and Bellapais monasteries, the Cyprus Museum, the Selimiye Mosque, the Avakas Gorge, the MacKenzie Beach, the Larnaca Salt Lake, and the Cathedral of St. Nicholas.
