Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily and Sardinia. It has been said, that the name Cyprus hides an ages-old mystique. Today, that mystique has intertwined with its history and long tradition to form beautiful resorts that combine white sandy beaches with wild virgin mountainous settings, untouched since antiquity. Thousands of tourists as well as students from all over the world make Cyprus their destination every year, because of its natural beauty, its unique climate, and its hospitable people.
With its unique proximity to Europe, Asia and Africa, Cyprus has been coveted, won and lost by countless civilizations over the centuries. Since the Mycenean Greeks settled in Cyprus over 3,000 years ago establishing the Greek civilization on the island, Phoenicians, Romans, Crusaders, Franks, Venetians and other conquerors have all left their mark on the island and helped to shape its special character.
Cyprus is the island where people from all over the world find it easy to engage in a variety of activities. They may choose to visit various historical monuments, archaeological remains, mediaeval castles, monasteries, fertile countryside, cedar forests, or vineyards where they become familiar with its long history and culture. Or they spend their days absorbing the sun on its beautiful white sandy beaches and enjoy their afternoons by taking strolls on the beachfront. There are, of course, those who thrive on the wild side of things, so they seek adventure through a range of outdoor activities including hiking, diving, water sports and bungee jumping. During the evenings they venture out to spectacular night clubs and bars, where they enjoy a mixture of Greek and foreign music.
Cyprus enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean climate with long, dry summers and mild winters. It is the sunniest island in the Mediterranean; from May to September there is hardly a cloud in the sky! Therefore, it remains a popular destination for tourists all the year through.
Cyprus prides on its almost non-existent crime rate and the Cypriots’ easy-going friendliness. Cypriots enjoy their security and tranquility in their small, beautiful island and never fail to show that everyone is welcome on their little paradise. It is a desirable destination especially for students, because of this.
