Cyprus is located at the south of Turkey. It is divided in a Turkish and a Greek part, which are separated by The Green Line in Nicosia, the capital. It is an island with a very rich history and culture, and it is the legendary home of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love. With its many beaches, every water sport existing is available here.
Nicosia: Being the capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, also being called Lefkosia, offers the widest range of museums, art galleries and monuments of the country. You can visit the Medieval city, surrounded by beautiful Venetian walls, the Cyprus Museum, the National Struggle Museum, where you’ll find the history of the Cypriot independence movement, the House of the Dragoman Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios, an ethnological museum within a restored 18th century building, the Museum of the History of Cypriot Coinage, or the Cyprus Classic Motorcycle Museum, with about 150 motorcycles on display. Nicosia is the world’s last divided capital.
Famagusta: This is the place to be for the beautiful golden sand and crystal blue water, which of course attract many visitors. Here you will find the deepest harbour of the country. But there is more, in the Natural Forest Park of Cape Gkreko you will be able to enjoy the marvellous nature of the island and its stunning cliffs, caves and coves. Worth a stop are the ruins of Ancient Salamis, the Church of Apostolos Varnavas and the Ancient Enkomi city.
Larnaca: Larnaca is the country’s longest continually inhabited region. It offers lots of historical buildings and sightseeing and of course a marvellous crystal blue sea. The most famous spot is its promenade of Foinikoudes, with beautiful palm trees and the beach very close by. A little further, you will find the sea walkway of Piale Pasha, where you can see the cathedral church of Agios Lazaros, the town’s Patron Saint. Worth a visit is the Larnaca Salt Lake, where you’ll see lots of flamingos during winter. At the archaeological Museum of the Larnaka District, you can find archaeological objects from Prehistoric to Roman times.
Paphos: Divided into Old Paphos and New Paphos, this Unesco World Heritage site has a lot to offer: beaches, parks, historical museums and monuments, all from Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. It is also known as the birthplace of the Greek Goddess of love Aphrodite. North-west of the district, you will find the Akamas National Park, where the green sea turtle is a protected animal, with its traditional fishing shelter Latchi.
Limassol: The second largest city of Cyprus. Apart from being a tourist destination, Limassol is also the place to be for international business. Furthermore, it has the origins of the wine making industry of Cyprus. The city is located between two ancient city-kingdoms, Amathus and Kourion. Outside the city, you can find two wetlands full of nature and wildlife: Germasogeia Dam and Akrotiri Salt Lake. A little further, the Troodos mountains surround the vineyard villages, which are filled with culture and traditions. Here you will find one of the oldest wines of the world: Commandaria. Also worth a visit is the Old Town of Limassol, with its Limassol Castle and, a bit outside of the town, the Kolossi Castle.
Kyrenia: The smallest district of the country, and the only one entirely controlled by the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Next to its Venetian harbour, you can find Kerenia Castle, which is probably built by the Byzantines, where you can visit the Shipwreck Museum.
There are only 3 international airports in Cyprus: Larnaca, Paphos and Ercan. It takes about 4,5 hours to fly from London to Larnaca or Paphos. There are no direct flights from London to Ercan, with a stop it takes about 5,5 hours.
