Cyprus and Surroundings
Cyprus is situated in southern eastern Europe in the Mediterranean Sea.
The first known settlement in Cyprus, dated as early as 9,000 years ago on the southern coast of Khirokitia has been under Assyrian, Egyptian, and Persian domination and was at one point a part of the Roman Empire.
Now it is more recently known as The Republic of Cyprus and was founded in 1960. As a result, Cyprus has been influenced by these periods and different countries making it a deeply enriched country with a very ancient history and heritage whilst also being able to retain its identity. This is shown not only through their culture but through both man-made products such as their food and wines, as well as natural beauty. Cyprus also has a lot of mineral wealth.
