Larnaca is a controversial city.
On the one hand, it cannot be called 100% tourist, on the other hand, it is also wrong to say that only Cypriots live in it. There is also the mixture of nationalities as in all major cities of Cyprus, just in different proportions.
Guests of Larnaca usually see and know the front part of the city: the central promenade of Finikoudes, the Mackenzie beach with planes, the tourist Dhekelia. But real life is a little further here, you need to go deeply. Moving away from the sea towards the mountains, you can see a lot of interesting things.
There are several busy streets, they are businesslike, with office buildings, banks, offices.
There are areas that were built specifically for refugees who were forced to move here from the occupied part of the island after the 1974 invasion. And there are quiet, calm, very clean and extremely pleasant areas such as Drosia.
The city has two types of pronouncing Drosia in Greek, but Drosha in Cypriot.
The area stretches upwards from the sea and is surrounded by 4 large streets: Grivas Digenis, Faneromeni, Artemis, Nikos and Despoina Pattichi.
If you are looking for the ideal area in Larnaca, quiet, with an abundance of natural beauty and a cosmopolitan environment, then you will not find the place better. It is an urban area with a large number of residential buildings, and a wide variety of them: from small apartments to houses with 4 bedrooms, townhouses and villas.
The toponym Δροσιά (dew or even coolness) was created at the beginning of the 20th century.
At the time, this area was an idyllic place to walk and relax. It was the Larnaca countryside. A place full of lush vegetation and bright colors, where people came to rest because of the good climate that has always existed in this part of the city. In some places, you can still find all this.
Drosia attracts potential homeowners and families with children by offering all the comforts of urban and suburban living together.
The area is quiet and noise-free. Compared to Mackenzie or the city center, it is much more beautiful. The area can be called completely residential, although office and corporate buildings are sometimes found.
There are completely different people living here: young professionals, retirees, expats and families with children.
Schools, medical institutions, shops, squares with playgrounds - all this is also Drosia. The best thing is that the beach is no more than 25 minutes' walk away. Mackenzie or Finikoudes can be reached in 10 minutes by car.
Drosia is constantly growing and developing. Buildings are being built here and there, and everything is in different styles, but one thing remains unchanged - peace and quiet.
