50 Cyprus Facts, an island rich in history and culture
Cyprus is a lovely island located in the eastern Mediterranean, rich in history and culture. In Cyprus you will enjoy the best blue waters and taste delicious Cypriot specialties that will make you want to come back. I’m lucky that I’m living there. I’ve made a list with 50 interesting Cyprus facts which include points about geography, history, economy, culture, transportation, food & drinks, entertainment and myths. Although I capture my own pictures, this time I choose to feature a photo which has caught my eye a long time ago on flickr. Enjoy.
Cyprus is an Island in the Mediterranean Sea
Cyprus is NOT part of Greece
The name of Cyprus may originate from the Mediterranean Cypress Tree (Kyparissos) or derived from copper that was discovered in Cyprus.
I’m Cypriot, with a London touch, experimenting with photography, working in marketing, love cooking, reading books and wishing to travel the world. I currently live in Limassol, Cyprus and try to travel as much as I can.
