Cyprus may be just a dot on the map, but lying as it does in the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean, the sea whose name means the middle of the earth, the island is ideally situated for visitors to travel to/from all four corners of the world!

image

Cyprus can be reached by air in no time from continental Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the island is easy to get to. The island offers a wide range of business-class hotels, sophisticated communication facilities and support services.

image

The island’s year-round perfect weather and its spectacular scenery of turquoise seas or pine clad mountains, the long history and rich culture, provide a perfect backdrop and the perfect formula for an experience everyone will remember.

Experience at first hand one of the oldest civilisations of the Mediterranean, one that goes back 10,000 years.

image

Conquered by foreign powers throughout its long history, the island is like a large open-air museum where one can see evidence of its chequered past. Ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Venetians, Ottomans and British all left their mark, making the island a mosaic of different cultures and periods.

image

Famous for its copper in antiquity, Cyprus (‘Kypros’ in Greek) may even have given the metal its Latin name, cuprum. The cult of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek mythological goddess of love and beauty, flourished here and people came from miles around to take part in celebrations in her name.

image

The island was the first country the apostles Paul and Barnabas visited in their mission to spread Christianity and the first to come under Christian administration.

image

When Cyprus became part of the Byzantine Empire art and architecture flourished here; the 12th centuryis the Golden Age of Byzantine painting in Cyprus. As a distant outpost of Byzantium, Cyprus escaped the iconoclastic decrees of the 8th century and much of its Byzantine art has survived here.

Cyprus’ 10,000-year-old history has brought up innumerable finds over the years, so much so that it is said if you scratch the soil anywhere on the island you are bound to unearth a relic from the past.

Lefkosia (Nicosia), the island’s capital, combining both old and new in a busy modern commercial and business centre and a centuries-old culture. The centre of the city has its old quarter surrounded by a Venetian sandstone fortress wall with a moat and heart-shaped bastions. Nicosia, is the Island’s centre of most of the government departments and various embassies

The district of Limassol (Lemesos) covers the south part of Cyprus and borders the district of Larnaca on the east, with the district of Paphos on the west, and the capital Nicosia on the north. Limassol is the second largest urban area in Cyprus, with an urban population of 160,000–176,700. The town of Limassol has been ranked by TripAdvisor as the 3rd up-and-coming destination in the world, in its Top 10 Travellers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise.

image

Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion and during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis (new town). Limassol's historical centre is located around its medieval Limassol Castle and the Old Port. Nowadays, Limassol is an important shipping and trade centre of Cyprus. Limassol has two ports, commonly referred to as the "Old Port" and the "New Port".

image

The new port has the greatest commercial and passenger traffic flow and is the biggest port in the Republic of Cyprus. During the last years, Limassol has experienced a construction boom fuelled by the tourism sector, as well as by increasing foreign investments in the city. Public projects are improving the quality of life and boost the image of the city as a cosmopolitan destination. Most of the hotels, restaurants, confectioneries, discos and places of entertainment in general, are to be found in this area.
