Mountains, monuments and diverse culture in the middle of the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean island of Cyprus was forcibly divided into Greek and Turkish parts in 1974. Thanks to its location from where it is only a short distance to the sea to Israel, Lebanon, Turkey and Egypt, it has become a real crossroads of cultures. The goddess Aphrodite was allegedly born from sea foam on the island, and in the fortress of Famagusta is the alleged scene of Othello's drama. In the middle of the island there is also the Trodos mountains with extensive pine forests. Of course, there are a number of beautiful beaches. The Greek part of Cyprus is part of the EU, while the Northern part is heavily dependent on Turkish support.
