Cyprus, an EU country that feels like an exotic island! A “golden-green leaf thrown into the Sea” in the words of the Greek Cypriot poet Leonidas Malenis and the birthplace of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of beauty, Cyprus is the third largest Mediterranean island.
Nestled between three continents and at a cultural, linguistic, and historic crossroads between Europe and Asia, Cyprus comprises tall mountains, fertile valleys, and a 640-km coastline with long sandy beaches. With the city of Nicosia being the country’s capital, Limassol and Paphos are the next two largest cities in the island.
A country of impeccable natural beauty and rich culture, centre of international transit trade, merchant shipping, banking, and related services, Cyprus is considered the ideal choice for investment and business opportunities, as it an advanced, high-income economy, a member of the EU & euro zone, with a very high health standard and a very low crime rate.
