Interesting facts about Cyprus & its history

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia. The island is located east of Crete and south of Turkey in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Since 1974 Cyprus is divided into North and South Cyprus. While the southern part belongs to the Republic of Cyprus, the northern part is under the Turkish flag. Between the two parts lies the "Green Line", a kind of buffer zone between the two halves of the island and the city of Nicosia.

The Republic of Cyprus (Southern Cyprus) has been a member of the European Union (EU) since 2004. The best way to reach the island is by plane. The main airports are located in Larnaca and Paphos. To enter the Republic of Cyprus, EU citizens and Swiss citizens only need a valid identity card or passport. For children under the age of 16, a child's ID card or an entry in the parents' passport is required. For the northern part of the island of Cyprus you need a valid passport, unless you enter via the "Green Line". In this case an identity card is sufficient.

Since January 1, 2008, the Euro (€) is the official currency in the Republic of Cyprus (Southern Cyprus) and has replaced the former Cypriot Lira. In the northern part of Cyprus, the Turkish lira (TRY) is the official currency. In most parts, however, the euro is also accepted.
