With over 4 million tourists visiting the island every year, the Cypriot experience is definitely highly cherished.

Cyprus is located on the eastern side of the Mediterranean Sea. The country is divided into six districts including Famagusta, Nicosia, Kyrenia, Limassol, Nicosia, and Larnaca. Nicosia is the country's capital city. During the last century, the island went through a major conflict that left it in a state of political uncertainty. As a result, the Northern part remains divided from the southern part. However, the island is still a fun, fascinating, safe, and comfortable place to visit, live and work in.  

Besides being a favorite tourist destination, Cyprus has become an extremely popular relocation destination among UK citizens. The period of British colonial rule between 1878 and 1960 left an indelible print on the island. The legacy of which can still be seen today when passing traditional red telephone boxes – some of which have been painted green for commercial reasons – and yellow pillar boxes, which were repainted after Cyprus gained independence.
