About Cyprus

Cyprus is the 3rd largest Mediterranean Island, covering 9,251sq. kilometres, 240km from West to East and 96km from North to South. The whole island has a relatively small population of approximately 880,000 people. Being at the crossroads of three continents-Europe, Asia and Africa- thus having one of the oldest histories of the world, Cyprus has cultural influences from all directions. Many different civilisations have left their mark on the island, which contributed to the development of a rich and diverse cultural heritage. This means that Cyprus can be a great host for many nationalities, hence the various foreign investors, who take advantage of the island’s ideal location and lower cost of living-compared to other European countries.
Communications – Cyprus is served by approximately 30 major airlines, therefore linking the island to the four corners of the world through the two international airports of Larnaca & Paphos.Driving is on the left side of the road and the distances between towns are relatively short. The longest distance in Cyprus is from Paralimni to Polis which is a total of 223km.
