Exploring local roads

Driving side in Cyprus is pretty much the same as in the UK, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and a few other countries. As an ex-British colony, Cyprus got its road system from the established ways of her majesty, the Queen’s land.

When it comes to the style of driving of the locals, a friend of mine once told me a joke about it: “The ex-pats (referring to the mainly Brits) drive on the left, the tourists – on the right; and the Cypriots in the shade”. I heard the same about the Maltese... Truth is locals are not so bad at driving. If you have ever witnessed, or worse, participated in traffic movement, let’s say in Egypt or Guatemala, driving in Cyprus will be an absolute breeze for you.

Flight over Cyprus

Cyprus is as diverse as the weather changes that happen here (you can read about the weather here). There is so much to see and so many places to visit that you might think there’s a continent concealed in this small island.

First off, it is an island in the eastern Mediterranean, more precisely the second largest one around. I has rich, turbulent history stretching back to antiquity, and by saying back into antiquity it means over 10 000 years ago!

Famous for its beaches and great climate, it has mountainous stretches with wine-growing regions and hidden villages. It is nesting home to some of rarest turtles.

Cyprus is a living book of pictures taken from world history. Over 9,000 Years of civilization gathered together on one island

Remains from the Neolithic period bear witness to the existence of an ancient civilization. According to tradition many of the ancient cities of Cyprus were founded by the heroes of the Trojan War whom also Hellenised the island. Assyrians, Phoenicians, Egyptians and Persians all passed through the island. This strategically important island was part o the Roman Empire for four centuries. Excavations have brought to light temples and palaces, amphitheatres and baths. Just as magnificent are the early Christian basilicas; equally magnificent are the Byzantine churches with their beautiful mosaics and icons. And then Crusader castles, Venetian fortifications.
