About Cyprus

Cyprus is an independent island country located in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, west of Syria and south of Turkey. It is the third largest island of the Mediterranean. Cyprus was once named the fifth most favorable country to live in. The island provides a perfect climate for summer holidays with an estimation of 300 sunny days each year. It has a hot and dry summer with a gentle coastline and clear sea. In 2008, European nations experienced severe downturn in economy.
