Featuring some of the oldest and the best water wells in the World, Cyprus is the third largest island nation located within the Mediterranean Sea. Officially known as the Republic of Cyprus, it is home to Khirokitia, which is a Neolithic age archaeological find, a settlement now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dominated by a couple of mountains, the 9,251 square kilometers of Cyprus landscape features a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, essentially distinguished by its semi-arid content.
With the absence of a railway network, the only means of transport within Cyprus is by road using buses, taxis and cars. Along with a highly developed infrastructure and a robust economy, Cyprus showcases an exquisite, unspoiled coastline along with the Troodos Mountains which provide some of the most beautiful villages, trails and a newly developed ski resort for holiday seekers. Greek and Turkish are the official languages of Cyprus, which has progressively adopted the Euro as its currency.
