Cyprus is an island nation in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. It is located at the crossroads of trade routes connecting Europe with the Middle East and Africa. Thanks to this privileged geographical position, it boasts a rich history and a huge number of perfectly preserved historical monuments inherited from various cultures. Furthermore, Cyprus is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. Mountain terrain, lots of beautiful beaches and rocky bays and a wide variety of excursions attract numerous tourists to the island every year.
Cyprus is a small island, but it’s packed with historical, cultural and natural attractions. In addition to sunbathing at the beach and going on an excursion, a visitor’s to-do list should include having dinner at a local tavern, tasting Commandaria (local dessert wine) at a local winery, enjoying the sunset from the rocky Cape Greco, snorkeling or scuba diving in the sea and looking for shipwreck treasures, as well as dancing at discos in Ayia Napa.
The fastest and easiest way to get there is by flying to Larnaka. Aeroflot operates direct flights from Moscow. They take about 4 hours and arrive at Larnaka International Airport. For the best prices, look for round-trip tickets, and remember to book in advance, as the cheapest fares sell out quickly.
