A "jewel" of a Mediterranean island and the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the island of Cyprus combines a rich natural and archaeological heritage with great natural beauty and a welcoming population!
Cyprus is a small European island country located in the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea. The geography of Cyprus includes the central plain, the Mesaoria Plain, which is bordered by the Kyrenia and Pentadactylos mountains to the north, and the Troodos mountain range to the south and west.
Cypriots are not always described simply as “Cypriots”. The word is often used together with the prefix “Greek” or “Turkish” in recognition of the two major ethnic groups that inhabit the island: the Greek-speaking Greek Orthodox community and the Turkish-speaking Muslims.
