Rich History and Diverse Culture
Cyprus may be small in size, but it is steeped in history and culture, more so than most other Mediterranean nations. Ideally situated centrally between the European, Asian and African landmasses, Cyprus quite literally has been the melting pot of many influences, from the well known associations to the Greek Gods, references to Cyprus in Hittite and Egyptian records, Persian allegiances, Roman Rule, Byzantine and Christian Influence, English Crusader Invasion and Knights Templar. A truly amazing wealth of history that can still be physically seen today.
More than 10,000 years have influenced the nation, its cultures and its people making Cyprus the unique island that it is. An island that is best enjoyed by total immersion – visit the ruins, admire UNESCO heritage sites, partake in festivities and traditions and become one with the island.
