Destination Cyprus

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean with a unique age-old mystique. In the early days of civilisation it was Cyprus's copper that boosted its importance. Mycenaean Greeks settled here in the late Bronze Age and established trade links with Egypt and the Aegean islands. In its long history Cyprus was variously under Persian, Assyrian, Egyptian and Roman rule. After a long period of Byzantine domination it was during the Crusades that a fierce sea storm led Richard the Lionheart to put his ship into port at Lemesos. He claimed the island as his own. From 1489 to 1571 the flag of Venice flew in Cyprus, followed by Ottoman Turks and then in 1878 Cyprus became part of the British Empire. The Republic of Cyprus achieved independence in 1960 and is now a member of the European Union.

Historic Cyprus

Cypriots are a resilient people and have maintained a distinct culture and unique character - different from their closest cousins, the Greeks. Sophisticated cities are a mixture of the ancient and modern with the capital, Nicosia, surrounded by Venetian walls with heart-shaped bastions; Larnaca, close to the international airport, has the architectural gem St. Lazarus Church. Near the busy harbor at Paphos are the Roman floor mosaics of the Houses of Aion, Achilles and Dionysus, with their well preserved mythological scenes.
