There is something for everyone in Cyprus: scenic beauty, clean sandy beaches and blue sea, mountains with pine forests often covered by snow in winter. Cyprus has a rich cultural and historical tradition. One may visit sites of stone-age settlements, ruins of Greek temples, Roman mosaics, Venetian wall defences, Byzantine churches with mural paintings and monasteries.
The well-known Cypriot hospitality, together with the island’s unique characteristics, has made Cyprus a major tourist resort. English is widely spoken and French and German are spoken within the tourism industry.
There are many hotels offering excellent accommodation all over the island, as well as a large number of restaurants offering European-style food and tavernas offering local dishes.
Moreover, numerous sports clubs provide facilities for swimming, tennis, horse-riding, water-skiing, yachting, winter sports etc.
