Cyprus: A place to travel

Updated on June 21, 2015

Cyprus: Location and History

Cyprus is an island located in the Mediterranean Sea. In Greek Mythology it is said that Cyprus is the island which Aphrodite, Goddess of Beauty was born.

The island lies on the east of Greece, south of Turkey, north of Egypt and on the west of Lebanon and Syria. For centuries different countries invaded Cyprus due to the benefits of its geographical position and natural wealth.

Thus, since the Turkish invasion in 1974, Cyprus remains split in two halves. One is the Greek-Cypriot side covering 59% of the island and the other the Turkish-Cypriot side which covers 36% of the islands land. Despite this, half of Cyprus (the Greek-Cypriot side) has been part of the European Union since 2004.

In the last couple of years there have been political discussions and conferences held regarding finding a solution to the Cyprus problem, as it is the only country in Europe which is split in two parts.

A destination you should certainly visit

Cyprus is a beautiful island with great history underlying it. So if you are intending to travel there do not forget to visit the museums, the golden sand beaches and the amazing night life in Protaras, Ayia Napa, Limassol and Pafos. If you enjoy going to the mountains do not neglect visiting Troodos mountain, Kalidonia, Agros and Kakopetria. And remember to take your camera as there is never ending sight seeing ahead which you would like to capture. Numerous tourists travel to Cyprus in the summer, especially during July and August which are the hottest months. There is also a number of tourists traveling in May and September which are considered hot during the day and cooler by night. However, the island is promoted as a year round destination as the sun remains for much longer.
