Cyprus – “Re-living History”

Officially the Republic of Cyprus, it is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, east of Greece, south of Turkey, west of Syria, Lebanon, northwest of Israel and north of Egypt. Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and a member state of the European Union. The island has had a politically troubled history with ongoing ownership disputes between Greece and Turkey resulting in a divided island with around 30% of the north of island under Turkish ownership, and the remainder be independent and populated by Greek-Cypriots. Significantly, in March 2008, a wall that for decades had stood at the boundary between the Republic of Cyprus and the UN buffer zone (to Turkey) was demolished. The wall had divided the city of Nicosia and was seen as a strong symbol of the island’s 32-year division.
Cyprus has the warmest climate (and warmest winters) in the Mediterranean part of the European Union. The island is steeped in Greek Mythology and has many areas of historical interest to visit as well as beautiful coastlines and beaches.
