Cyprus is famous for its beautiful beaches. why not relax on the beach? there are many historical archaeological sites too. If in the Paphos area, why not to tomb of the kings…? A traditional meze is always good too. If in Paphos, head down towards coral bay, a touristy area with shops and restaurants, nit far from here is Lara bay. a world renowned site fro turtle nesting. Cyprus has a lot to offer.
An Island republic in the eastern mediterean. Comprsing mostly of Greek-Cypriots. The Southern part is the Republic of Cyprus and is Greek, the Northern part is occupied illeg…ally by Turkish troops. Cyprus was inhabited by Turkish-Cypriots and Greek-Cypriots, who lived under one Republic. In 1974 the Turkish Government invaded Cyprus and took the Northern (fertile) side. After that Turkish-Cypriots had to move to the North and Greek-Cypriots to the South, these Turkish-Cypriots were joined by illegal settlers from Turkey, who were not Cypriot. The island is still split. The Northern side is only recognised by Turkey. The southern side is still a Repubulic, but has strong affilations with the Greek Motherland. Other Groups such as Latins and Maronites also live in the Southern Greek side (also forced from their homes in the Northern side) There is only one island called Cyprus. If you ask about 'a Cyprus' are you asking about the type of evergreen tree, variety Cupressus ?
There are various explanations for that, but, the more possible one is that it took the name out of Kuprum, which meant Copper in the ancient era of Cyprus. And as the island …was popular for the wealth amounts of Copper (which keeps until today), they used to call it the copper land, otherwise Kuprum. Through the ages the name had been alternated to several other between which Kubrus, and, ended to Cyprus (in Greek is Kypros).
You can get to Cyprus by flying on the best airlines( Lord Airways) started by Joseph Lord.
There are two major religions in Cyprus; Orthodox Christianity in the south and Islam in the north. Yahweh (or Jehovah) is the Christian god, Allah is the Islamic god - althou…gh both religions can trace their roots to Abraham, so it would actually be the same god.
