The island of Cyprus is located at the southeast part of the Mediterranean sea and for thousands of years its strategic position, on the crossroads of three continents and the warm Mediterranean climate, attracted many visitors, explores and invaders.
Throughout the centuries, the history of the island was mainly based on its strategic position and the enslavement of the Cypriot people from invaders such as Franks, Venetians, Turks and British continued until the recent history.
Cyprus has developed historical, political, cultural, religious and national bonds with Greece. This is not a coincidence. Since 1400 BC Achaeans resided on the island. Cyprus was Hellenised since ancient times and these strong bonds exist until nowadays.
After decades of serving as a British colony, the island gained independence in 1960, after the victory of the liberation war of 1955-1959. 14 years later though, in 1974 war struck the island again. This time Turkey invades the island and since then the North part of the island is under illegal occupation. In 1983, Turkey founded the so called Turkish Democracy of Northern Cyprus, an entity that only Turkey recognises and no other state.
The warm and sunny Mediterranean climate and the fact that Cyprus is an harbour of history, culture and entertainment attracts thousands tourists every year who want to explore a place with more than 10.000 years of history, to get introduced to its traditions and culture and to enjoy its beautiful beaches and seas.
Each and every city of the island provides to its visitors a journey through time, which engages in harmony the past with the present, filling up the visitors with memorable experiences from their stay on the island.
Limassol is the second biggest city of the island and it is built in between two ancient cities of Amathus and Curium, the remains of which residents and visitors can visit and admire.
Limassol has the biggest harbour and is known for its nightlife. The beaches that lie across the city are one of the basic reasons that visitors choose Limassol as their destination.
The past few years, the development program of the city, lists Limassol between one of the most desirable destinations. The last completed project of Limassol Marina provides the city with the beauty and charm that the most cosmopolitan cities in the world have.
