What is Cyprus known for?

In a touristy sense, Cyprus is know for its beaches and resorts as well as many other holiday resorts in the Mediterranean, however Cyprus is also rich in culture. Cyprus is famed for being the birth place of Aphrodite, as well as having many Greek Orthodox Monasteries up in the mountains (the most famous of which is called Kykos).

In a more political sense, Cyprus is divided in half, with the northern half of the island being occupied illegal by the Turkish. This divide is called the green line and runs through the center of Nicosia, the capital.

Cyprus is a beautiful island with many attractions and I would recommend a visit!
