With a history that dates back thousands of years, Cyprus is the largest and most cosmopolitan island in the Eastern Mediterranean. The fact that it is the birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of Beauty herself, is no coincidence - the Mediterranean climate is fantastic and the natural beauty is stunning. Breathtaking mountains and a coastline of beaches with crystal clear waters make Cyprus a dream destination where visitors can enjoy swimming and water sports 365 days a year.
Cyprus today is a member of the EU with the Euro as its currency and a relatively low cost of living. The residents of the island benefit from advanced infrastructure within hospitals, streets, schools, universities, amusement centers, restaurants, theatres, supermarkets and services across the board. Cyprus is connected with the larger European capitals on a daily basis by air, and residents enjoy a high standard of living amongst European states in issues regarding safety, health, economy and everyday life.
