Cyprus is a fascinating country with cities that each have their own unique character.
The cities of Cyprus are full of life and culture. Larnaca is one of the largest cities in the country and is home to many universities. Paphos has a rich history with Roman ruins, while Nicosia was once the capital of whole Cyprus until 1974 when it became divided between Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots. Ayia Napa is known for its nightlife scene, while Protaras offers some quiet beaches away from all the noise. Limassol is the place for all-day parties at the beaches and other entertainments. Oroklini is a small town that doesn’t get much attention but still has plenty to offer at least we like some restaurants there :). Paralimni is a quiet town with plenty of hotels and restaurants.
And we just described cities from the south part of the island. If you are really want to understand life on this island more, we would propose to check all cities, in the north part of Cyprus too.
Let’s look at least in Famagusta. This city is rich in history and it was once the most popular city in Cyprus. The ghost town Varosha is deserving attention. Now there are no people in this part of town. But if you go down to see the beach it’s a very nice and quiet area. In Girne we could point out that city is known as Kyrenia. The nature lovers will find there everything they need for rest because all cities in Cyprus have something interesting.
