Nicosia Lies Roughly in the Centre Of Cyprus

Aug 18, 2007
Cyprus has dependable links with the rest of the World via two international airports at Paphos and Larnaca. It served by nearly all major European and international airlines, many of which provide direct flights from destinations in Europe and the Middle East.

Nicosia is the capital city in the heart of Cyprus. It lies roughly in the centre of the island, within easy reach of the other towns.

This is the worlds only divided capital city and both halves of it are culturally compelling. The Greek Cypriot southern side is fast paced glittering Orthodox churches and fine museums are matched by cosmopolitan dining and nightlife while a day trip north into the Turkish occupied sector reveals fabulous Ottoman architecture in an environment little changed since the 1974 partition.

Today Nicosia is one of the oldest cities in our part of the world, is a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city in the Eastern Mediterranean, rich in history and culture and combines its historic past with the amenities of a modern city.

Narrow streets and old houses with ornate balconies jut from weather beaten sandstone walls and craftsmen in small workshops practice trades unchanged for centuries.

Whether you are a lover of nature, an archaeologist, a keen walker, a water sportsman or simply a sun worshipper this little island is the ideal spot for you.

Those engrossed in history and art will make their way directly to the Cyprus Museum, which holds the islands priceless treasures from the first stirrings of the Neolithic Age through the Roman period.

At the Byzantine Museum, encounter a dazzling collection of early Christian icons from the Mediterraneans Golden Age. The State Collection of Contemporary Art takes a newer perspective, focusing on Cyprus modern artists, some of whom have gained note on the international market.

There is a wide selection of properties including budget, business, tourist, luxury, bed and breakfasts and apartments accommodation.

The climate of Cyprus is typically Mediterranean. Summers June to September are hot and dry winters November to March are moderately rainy, with a mild temperature. Spring and autumn are warm and pleasant. The average annual temperature is 20. Summer temperatures average 30 with the coldest months of January and February 10.

Sometimes you wonder how youll fit it all in. There is so much packed in to Cyprus an abundance of beaches and holiday resorts, more historical artifacts and Roman and Greek ruins than you know what to do with. There is only one thing for it comes back more than once.
