About Cyprus

With 300 days of sunshine a year, Cyprus is a hot touristic destination, and the island’s history is equally hot. Cyprus got its name 3,500 years ago when valuable copper (kypros) was found within the island, attracting hordes of Greeks and invaders. Ten different cultures have ruled the island over 27 centuries, which is easy to see in Cyprus' multi-coloured traditions and in its blend of cultures. And it's not only Cyprus' fascinating history that enchants travelers. From golden beaches and entertaining water-sports, through citrus trees, pines and the unspoiled Troodos mountains, to delightful urban areas, Cyprus is an exciting adventure. See Cyprus' vibrant villages, discover the food and culture and participate in the pulsating nightlife.

Tips

Good to know

Public Transport

There are many different bus routes in Cyprus, connecting both the towns to the airports and the towns one another. As the island has developed around tourism, there is a thick network of buses also available form town to rural areas.

Northern Cyprus features a transport system that is not as developed as the southern one - if you are planning on getting around from one town to another the best option is to rent a car.
