Facts and Figures
At the crossroads of three continents where the East meets West and at the meeting point of great civilizations, Cyprus has developed- and for thousands of years has maintained- its own civilization centre, assimilating the various influences from its conquerors. It has remained a thriving centre of Greek culture with its own specific characteristics.
With its area of 9251 km² Cyprus is the 3rd largest island (after Sicily and Sardinia) in the Mediterranean Sea. The 11,000- year history filled with myths, legends and lost civilizations can be found almost at every corner of the island. Visitors will lose hours exploring the Greek temples, ancient mosaics and medieval castles, set amidst serene and picturesque countryside. Those looking for a relaxing beach break will find spectacular sandy beaches, hideaway coves and bustling coastal resorts with sophisticated nightlife. Away from the beach areas tourists find charming traditional villages to explore many remain unspoiled by development or tourism. There are monasteries, beautiful churches and breathtaking scenery to enjoy.
Famed for its year-round sun and warm climate, Cyprus is the perfect winter warmer but offers as well winter activities at Trodos Mountains.
