Cyprus is situated in the Eastern Mediterranean at the cross roads of three continents. The island’s strategic location has shaped its history and civilization throughout the centuries. Its excellent infrastructure, high quality of life, low cost of living and generous tax incentives attract people to the island from all over the world.
Cyprus is an island of tradition, charm and romance. With 9000 years of legend and history there is much to enchant you. Mountainous villages, crystal clear waters to tempt you, sandy beaches, green valleys and beautiful landscapes, all bathed in sunshine for 340 days each year.
Most important of all is the all-embracing warm hospitality of the Cypriot people – Kalosorisate – welcome to our island!
Paphos (or Pafos), a city rich in history and culture, is a gem of Western Cyprus. There is archaeological evidence supporting the city’s existence from the Neolithic period. Believed to be the birthplace of Greek Goddess of love and beauty ‘Aphrodite’, Paphos proudly boasts the remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs that belong to Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. A site with such remarkable architectural and historic value is an ornament to the city and thus has been included in UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites as a natural and cultural treasure.
