The new urban lifestyle
Read our guide to Cyprus and learn more about the golden beaches, fantastic food and laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle which make the island a popular destination for holiday makers from all over the world.
Due to its strategic location, Cyprus has a history of conflict, invasion and settlement for centuries. From the Greeks to the Romans, the Byzantine Empire to the British Empire. To this day Cyprus remains a divided island, under Turkish rule in the north and Greek in the south.
Cyprus has something for everyone and visitors can enjoy:
With so much ancient history and diverse influences from around the world, Cyprus has a fantastic array of arts, festivals, performing arts and architectural heritage. Look out for the many adorned churches and cathedrals, Roman amphitheaters and Byzantine frescoes.
With a diverse population of just under a million, and even with the cultural divide between its north and south, Cypriots tend to be warm, friendly and accommodating to all law-abiding visitors who want to enjoy their holiday in Cyprus.
Food and drink
You cannot visit Cyprus without sampling the local cuisine. A combination of Greek and Turkish food, popular dishes include souvlaki (pork kebabs), kleftiko ofto (oven-baked lamb) and kupepia (stuffed vine leaves). No meal would be complete without trying Cypriot wine from the Troodos Mountains.
