Beautiful sunny island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Here you will find both wonderful beaches and warm azure sea and green mountains and unbridled fun. All this is not much inferior to the famous Ibiza, but much cheaper. So, come on! Ayia Napa Cyprus!


You should know that the northern part of Cyprus has been occupied by Turkey since 1974. You should consider that when choosing a holiday destination. The southern part of the island is occupied by the Republic of Cyprus. There are two airports in this part of the island, one in Larnaca and one in Paphos.

From both airports, you can reach any point of the Republic of Cyprus without any problem. The airport of Paphos is convenient for visiting Paphos itself. Paphos is the business capital of Cyprus and boasts some interesting historical sights. It is the business center of the country, but there are also super beaches here.




Larnaca airport is more suitable for those who chose the south-eastern coast for their trip. From Aya Napa and further east, the beaches are only white sand.
Young people love the tourist town of Ayia Napa Cyprus. the most. It’s no coincidence. It is here that you can find a whole block of nightclubs, cafes and bustling bars where you can find entertainment for every taste. There are theme parties, pubs with live music, and completely disconnected bars.

Background information:
Cypriot culture is one of the oldest in the Mediterranean. The island fell under Assyrian, Egyptian, Persian, Greek and Roman rule. For 800 years, starting from 364 AD, Cyprus was ruled by Byzantium. In 1571 the island was conquered by the Ottoman Turks and in 1878 it was handed over to Britain. Officially annexed by the United Kingdom in 1914, it became a colonial crown in 1925. British rule continued until August 1960, when, after four years of liberation struggles, the island became independent and was declared a republic.

In 1974, the Greek military junta staged a coup d’état in Cyprus to seize the government of the President of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios, which was responded to by the Turkish military intervention, during which Turkish troops soon controlled about 37% of the island. 40% of the total Greek Cypriot population was forced to leave their homes in the occupied territory.

Since 1974, Cyprus has de facto been divided into two thirds of the islands in the south, controlled by the Republic of Cyprus, and one third of the Turkish Cypriots in the north, with a buffer zone supported by UN peacekeeping forces between them.

The Republic of Cyprus became an independent state on 16 August 1960 and a month later became a member of the United Nations and has been a member of the European Union since 2004.

Under the influence of the United Nations and the European Union, efforts to reunify the island under a federal structure continue.


Cyprus, known as the “Pearl of the Mediterranean” and the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the ancient goddess of love and beauty, certainly meets the strict standards of its divine patroness.
A stunning Mediterranean island soaked in legends, myths, beauty and romance and enjoying more than 340 sunny days a year, Cyprus attracts visitors from all over the world.
Today’s tourists, fascinated by the island’s endless golden sands, secluded coves and rocky bays, are also attracted to Cyprus for their fascinating history and culture, its fine Mediterranean cuisine and its magnificent mountains and green countryside, which prove that Cyprus is more than just “Sun and Sea”.
