Having rich history, Cyprus is fraught with secrets of the past.

Cyprus cities are mirrors of all past events, many of which have perfectly preserved the memory of history. Movement or rest... each of them is unique in its own way!

The stunning and picturesque, cozy and atmospheric cities of the island of Aphrodite, undoubtedly, at first glance, fascinate with their uniqueness and marvelous traditions of local residents. Therefore, for those who are planning to travel in Cyprus, they certainly give only the brightest and warmest impressions, the time spent there is remembered for a lifetime.

As everyone knows, Cyprus is divided into two parts. North and South Cyprus are two completely different and independent regions, both have their own characteristics and privileges. They are united by only one feature, they are united by a truly "paradise" and mild climate!

In the southern part of Cyprus there are cities of Polis, Paphos, Limassol, Larnaca, Ayia Napa, and in the north there are Famagusta and Kyrenia. As for the capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, one part belongs to the Republic of Cyprus (south), and the other if part of unrecognized TRNC (north).

Polis

Polis is located in the foothills of the Troodos massif. The name means "city" in Greek. Residents and guests of Paphos come here, since it is relatively close and easily accessible if a rental car is at hand.

At the same time, 90% of vacationers in Cyprus do not even know about the existence of this town in the northwest of Cyprus. Usually tourists choose Ayia Napa, Limassol, Paphos or Larnaca and do not go within a radius of 50 km fr om their holiday destination. Nevertheless, small Cyprus has enough points of attraction, one of which is considered to be Polis and the surrounding villages in the mountains and on the coastline. Yes, Polis is far fr om the bustling tourist centers, but it is definitely rich in means of beautiful views.

In ancient times, the city was called Marion. This name remained for quite a long time, but at the beginning of the new era the city changed its name to Arsinoe. It still had the name Arsinoe, when the city had developed crafts, had big trade deals with other Mediterranean countries, when the residence of the city mined copper. Only after the 14th century the town received the modern name of Polis.

The Upper and Lower Polis

Upper Polis is located on a hill, about 2.5 km fr om the coastline. There are the main city’s attractions and shops, the Polis bus station and a small historic center with a central square.

Lower Polis is a large beach-tourist place on the shore of the waters of the Mediterranean Sea. There are the beaches of Polis, which have the Blue Flag award, a sign of the purity and quality of beaches and sea water, and there is the village of Latchi with the famous port of the same name.

Latchi has no world-class attractions, except for the recently installed statue of Queen Regina, but it is pleasant and cozy here at any time of the year, including the low winter season.

Latchi harbor is a visiting card of Polis nowadays.

Here is life in full swing fr om morning to late evening. There is a narrow promenade along the pier, there are pedestrian zones around, there are cafes, restaurants and taverns nearby, as well as travel agencies, shops, supermarkets, a sailing club and a boat rental center.

The most interesting attraction of Polis is the Akamas Peninsula, the last wildlife refuge of Cyprus untouched by man. There is de-facto no civilization here, there are many marked hiking trails, there is wild fauna and fauna.

Polis is the administrative center of the municipality of the same name, which includes 23 communities. In the heart of the town is a small square with many taverns, quaint terraces and a great shopping street. The key source of income of local residents is tourism, as well as agriculture and fishing. Polis is well known in Cyprus for its lavish fish fairs and colorful yachting competitions.

The cost of short-term rental housing in Polis starts at €40 per day. The purchase of real estate costs fr om €600 per m2.

Paphos

The cultural capital of Cyprus is a magnificent city of Paphos, located in the southwestern part of the island. The city has the record number of historical sights, surpassing other cities of Cyprus in the number of ancient monuments. Having been in the hands of many nations, this city could gather a number of cultural, historical and archaeological secrets of the past.

These places were known as the center of worship of the goddess Aphrodite in ancient times. According to one version, the founder of Paphos was a king Cinyras. He was the father of Adonis, the lover of Aphrodite. According to another version, the kingdom called Paphos was founded by the king of Tegea Agapenor, whose ship was brought to the western coast of Cyprus by the winds after the Trojan War. During the Archaic and Classical periods, Paphos was one of the 11 kingdoms in Cyprus. In the era of late antiquity, Paphos became the capital of Cyprus.

Today the city is divided into two parts: Paphos, also known as Ktima, wh ere the commercial and administrative center of the city is located, and Kato Paphos (Lower Paphos), located along the sea. In 1980 the entire archaeological site of Paphos (the old part of the city) was included in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List.

To visit the city of Paphos means to enjoy the amazing beauty of the Mediterranean Sea, taste exotic local cuisine, visit the majestic buildings of the past and listen to the voice of a tour guide. By the way, Paphos is preferred by Germans and British.

Paphos is considered one of the quietest cities of Cyprus, wh ere life is measured.

There are no large industries here; local authorities focus on agriculture and tourism. Export fr om Paphos is very developed, especially the export of wines, olive oil and other products. And also Paphos has the largest banana plantations on the island.

Many vacationers are often disappointed in Paphos when they learn that there are literally no sandy beaches on the coastline of the city center, just unlike Ayia Napa, the champion of amazing beaches in Cyprus. Therefore, when you plan to book a room in a hotel or holiday apartment, you need to remember that there are no good beaches. It is worth knowing that the best and interesting wild beaches of Paphos are located outside the city.

Paphos is also an excellent example of a resort town wh ere you can buy inexpensive real estate in Cyprus at very reasonable prices. The cost of a townhouse of 80 m2 in a good neighborhood starts fr om €80,000.

Limassol

Limassol is the second largest city on the island of Aphrodite, which deservedly claims to be the most progressive and universal city of Cyprus. When you visit Limassol for the first time, you think that permanent residence here is a real paradise wh ere everyone can find something to their wish. We must say that the trend of population growth of the city really proves this thought. A lot of rave reviews are caused by the dynamics and standard of living as Limassol seems to be a bright and not boring place for many locals.

Perhaps that is why the largest Russian diaspora is concentrated in Limassol. Here Russian speech is heard literally at every corner. There are many Russian shops and companies, there is even a radio station that broadcasts in Russian, and several newspapers are also published in this language.

Business life is active in Limassol as offices of the largest international private companies fr om almost any field of activity are represented, there is the largest seaport of the island.

Limassol was founded in the 4th century BC and had the name of Neopolis. The turning point of the history of the modern resort was 1191 AD, when the city was captured by the crusaders, led by the legendary King Richard the Lionheart.

The monarch went to Cyprus to set free his bride and sister, who were captured by a local wealthy man after they had a shipwreck. Richard proclaimed himself king of the island, and Neopolis renamed Limassol and soon the city began to develop rapidly.

During the reign of the Templars, a seaport was built here and Limassol became one of the most important trade centers in Europe. But after the invasion of the Turks, the economy and infrastructure of the city fell into complete decline. The revival of Limassol began only with the beginning of the period of the British occupation. The British returned the city to its former glory as a trading center of Cyprus and made it the center of winemaking.

Today Limassol is considered an elite resort city. Every month a lot of various cultural events, social events, festivals and concerts are held here. The city of Limassol has many places where you can have a lot of fun and spend time with your children.

The location of Limassol is very convenient for tourists, as all the attractions are close to the city. Limassol is known for its volcanic sand beaches, vibrant nightlife, plenty of water activities and delicious wine. All this makes the city popular for tourists, the number of visitors is growing dramatically every year.

By the way, most immigrants fr om all over the world want to live in Limassol. Including immigrants fr om ex Soviet countries and European Union. Here you can study, work and come to holidays.

Limassol is included in the list of the most comfortable cities for living. But at the same time it should be noted that some who have moved to the city are disappointed. But it is really rary as salaries usually ‘neutralize’ all other disadvantages. Limassol has a lot of high-paying jobs but prices in the city are also quite high.

Thus Limassol is an expensive resort. It has very high real estate prices: an average of € 2000 per one square meter.

Of course you can find great Limassol real estate at affordable prices, but you need to look for them.

Larnaca

Larnaca is the third largest city of the island, an important commercial and port center, and also the air gateway to Cyprus as the largest international airport of the island is located here.

Larnaca is located on the southeastern coast of Cyprus. The northern part of the city is bordered by the capital Nicosia, the east - by another large city called Famagusta. Larnaca is placed on the site of the ancient city-state of Citium, wh ere Zeno, an outstanding philosopher of antiquity, was born. According to legend, the city was founded by Noah's grandson Kittim.

It is believed that the modern name of the city comes fr om the Greek word λάρναξ, which means "coffin". Because of the expansion of the city, new buildings had to be built over the necropolis of ancient Citium. Some believe that this name is related to the tomb of St. Lazarus discovered here.

Since 1974, the territory in the northern part of the Larnaca district has been under the control of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. It was annexed to the Lefkosha district. The small picturesque village of Pyla remained inside the "green line", which was designated by the UN forces after the conflict between the Greek and Turkish communities of the island.

Larnaca is well known as an attractive tourist destination for its beautiful sandy beaches and historical sites that are very popular for tourists. Among the most significant are Umm Haram Mosque, Larnaca Castle, Kamares Aqueduct, St. Lazarus Church, Aliki Salt Lake.

In Larnaca, it is good to spend a vacation, to walk among the palm alleys, to enjoy the bright colors of subtropical flowers. Near the embankment are the old streets of the city, wh ere there are quite large supermarkets and small shops of artisans as the city is famous for its pottery workshops.

It should be noted that in recent years Larnaca has been developing dramatically, attracting more and more attention of foreign investors.

A well-furnished 2 bedroom apartment in a new building costs about € 150,000. On average, the minimum price for 1 m2 is €1,200.

Ayia Napa

The beautiful Ayia Napa is located in the eastern part of the island, at a beautiful bay of the south side of a cape named Capo Greco. The name of the city is translated fr om Greek as “sacred forest”. According to one of the legends, in the 14th century AD a hunter came into a cave of a large forest, wh ere he found an icon of the Most Holy Lady Theotokos. Since that time thousands of believers have come to this great shrine.

In the 16th century, a small chapel was built near the cave, then it was turned to a monastery. Today it is used as a museum, wh ere old icons, church utensils, furniture and other relics of the 13-16 centuries are collected. Monks have not lived in the monastery for a long time, but they conduct religious services here time by time.

In the 18th century, Greek fishermen began to actively settle around the monastery, and soon a new village grew up here, which later turned into a beautiful small coastal town. As years have passed Ayia Napa got the title of "Cyprus Riviera" or "youth capital of the island" as it looks exactly like the world famous youth resort of Ibiza.

Ayia Napa's beaches are the best in Cyprus as well as in the whole Europe.

Snow-white sand, clear sea, hot sun... what else do you need for a beach holiday? An undoubted plus here is the developed infrastructure: there are sun loungers with umbrellas, showers, changing rooms, as well as numerous restaurants and shops.

Ayia Napa is a city that attracts tourists hungry for freedom, entertainment and amazing views. The main visitors of the resort are young people. There are lots of bars, clubs and discos so that Ayia Napa is often compared to Spanish Ibiza. There are many 4-5* hotels, wh ere the noise and fun of the bar street does not interfere with your rest. Families with children come to Ayia Napa for the sake of infrastructure and excellent beaches.

The dynamic and colorful Ayia Napa receives hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. During the day, crowds of people run to the beaches of the town, in the evening a street of bars comes to life, wh ere young people dreaming of impressions gather together. The local people of Ayia Napa are mostly engaged in tourism. All locals know English perfectly. Due to the annually increasing flow of tourists fr om Europe, many understand other European languages quite well.

The average price for rental housing in Ayia Napa starts fr om €70 per day, and the purchase costs from € 1000 per one square meter. This is one of the lowest rates in Cyprus.

Famagusta

History of any ancient city has periods of prosperity and decline. They can replace each other for a long time. Usually we can see evidence of these changes in museums or on the ruins of the past. Much less often it is possible to see the transition from wealth and prosperity to decline and degradation right now.

Famagusta (Greek name is Ammochostos) is an excellent example of this metamorphosis. The city is located on the South-East coast of the unrecognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Famagusta was built on the site of the ancient city of Arsinoe, built in the 3rd century BC. by hellenistic king Ptolemy II. The city was not remarkable for anything for a long time, but as Cyprus became the property of the Lusignan dynasty, Famagusta began to develop dramatically. The Famagusta’s port became one of the most important in the Mediterranean. Famagusta was ruled by both the Genoese and the Venetians. The latter constructed the Martinengo bastion (1558-1562) to defend the city, Venetians withstood the siege of Turkish troops for a long time, but finally surrendered in 1571.

Famagusta was even the seat of Richard the Lionheart at one time. It remained the main tourist center of Cyprus until 1974. In 1974 the Turks invaded the city and destroyed everything. The elite district of Varosha, wh ere Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and other stars loved to spend their time, has turned into a ghost town, surrounded by a fence.

There are myths that clothes that were in fashion 40 years ago are still in the shops of Varosha, but this, of course, is not true as everything was looted during the very first days of the occupation. The days when Famagusta was a large tourist Mecca of the entire Mediterranean and the most attractive resort in Cyprus ended as the Turkish army arrived. The Turkish army is still the only power in Varosha, which does not give the slightest change to revive the former glory of the city.

Many churches of Famagusta have disappeared, and others, such as the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, have been turned into mosques. Anyway the city literally breathes history as there are old buildings, cathedrals, fortresses, ancient public baths and other carefully guarded ruins everywhere.

Also the city has excellent clean beaches full of golden sand, these beaches are among the best on the island. Today Famagusta has lost the status of a resort and beach center, but it is still a city that attracts lots of tourists. Even despite the fact that Famagusta is a ghost town, that there is the world-famous Varosha quarter, the city attracts because of its originality. Many people come here every year to see Varosha. However, it is possible to see the dead city only through walls. Anyway it is worth visiting this city if you want to see a huge number of attractions that tell about all periods of Cyprus history.

Beauty, clear sea, rich history, high-quality and inexpensive real estate, these are the reasons why housing in Northern Cyprus is in constant demand among buyers. Sales of primary housing are growing here by an average of 10% per year.

However, looking for apartments or houses for sale in north Cyprus is like Russian Roulette.

Northern Cyprus is a country that is recognized only by Turkey, but for the rest of the world it is part of the Republic of Cyprus. The main problem may be the controversial status of the land, part of which still belongs to the Greek Cypriots who now live in the southern part of the island. A lot of real estate has been built on these Greek Cypriot lands so there is a risk that the previous owner may lay claim to his property. As a result, you can be left without money and without real estate. It's worth it?

Kyrenia

Kyrenia is the most popular city in the northern part of Cyprus. It is a small but pretty picturesque town, wh ere the historical heritage of many eras is mixed. Also if you stay near the city’s port you can see amazing sunsets and even the coastline of Turkey.

The city was founded in the 9th century BC, at the crossroads of important trade routes of the Eastern Mediterranean. Kyrenia was once ruled by the Greeks, Egyptians, Hittites, Persians, Romans, Byzantines, British, Genoese, Venetians and Ottoman Turks.

Because of this the city acquired a magnificent appearance, which borrows the best from each nationality. Prior to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, Kyrenia was mainly inhabited by Greek Cypriots. However, now the demography of the city has changed significantly. Today the population of Kyrenia is Turkish Cypriots and immigrants from Turkey.

By the way, northern Cyprus is a place full of dark stories and it can seem not legal to visit it. But if you are not afraid, the city of Kyrenia is an ideal place for the first acquaintance with Northern Cyprus!

The picturesque seaside town attracts tourists because of its pristine beaches and crystal clear waters. And also picturesque mountains, on the tops of which beautiful castles are placed.

In the last decade, Kyrenia has become a big city, and now it is the most popular place to visit in the Northern part of the island. Tourists visit local olive and orange groves in the surrounding area. The landscapes here are literally amazing.

The real estate market in Kyrenia is very diverse, because the capital of foreign and local investors has been actively invested in this city over the past few years. Accommodation in Kyrenia is notable for its low number of storeys.

However, buying property in Kyrenia has the same risks as in Famagusta.

Nicosia

Nicosia, Lefkosia, Lefkoşa are the names of the capital of Cyprus in different languages: English, Greek and Turkish. Nicosia is not a resort city as it is the administrative and business center of the country. Like any other state capital, Nicosia is the center of cultural and economic life. With just one exception! Nicosia is the only capital in Europe, divided into 2 parts by different states. The Green Line runs right in the middle of the city center, drawing the border between the Republic of Cyprus and the unrecognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Today Nicosia is the most populous city in Cyprus, because it's population is over 300 thousand people. Many companies build their offices in Nicosia or its suburbs. Nicosia has the only prison on the island, there are all the embassies and the residence of the President and Archbishop.

The capital of Cyprus is located in the very center of the island. It is the only major city away from beaches and the sea. Nicosia appeals to those who want not only to get a bronze tan, but also to enrich themselves culturally.

The history of the city is old. According to some sources, people lived here as early as the 7th century BC. In ancient times, the city was called Ledra, and then was renamed Leucotheon. Nicosia became the capital of the island in the 11th century, when the ruling Lusignans turned the city into a powerful fortress full of royal mansions and numerous churches.

Later, the island was conquered by the Ottoman Turks, and in the 19th century Cyprus came under the protectorate of Great Britain. In 1960, Cyprus became an independent state, but already in 1974 Turkish troops captured the northern part of the island as well as the northern part of it’s capital Nicosia.

By the way, the fusion of two different cultures, two religions, Greece and Turkey, gave rise to many interesting sights. Although there is a real border between the Turkish part of the city and the Greek part, the mutual influence is still felt quite strongly. The most memorable architectural monuments in Nicosia are, of course, the fortification complex of the Venetian Walls and the Famagusta Gate.

Города Кипра

Despite the considerable distance from the coast, real estate in Nicosia is actively bought not only by locals, but also by foreigners.

For example, a two-bedroom apartment of 70-80 square meters costs about 200 000 euros. As for the rent in the capital, it is slightly lower than in the coastal cities of the island.
