Cyprus is a large island, the third largest in the Mediterranean. Cyprus is an island of beauty and a country of contrasts. Cool pine clad mountains are a complete theme-change after the golden sun kissed beaches, tranquil, timeless villages are in striking contrast to modern cosmopolitan towns; luxurious hotels can be exchanged for large areas of natural, unspoiled countryside; yet in Cyprus all distances are easily manageable. The island offers it's visitors a genuine welcome and all the necessary infrastructure for an unforgettable pleasant stay.
Lefkosia (Nicosia) is one of the oldest capitals in the world. The long and fascinating history of the island is reflected in this city of individual character and style. Against this historic background a modern metropolis comes to life. Lefkosia today is the island's pulse, it is the diplomatic, financial, cultural and commercial centre of Cyprus.
Located in the capital is the island's purpose built conference centre, which along with several hotels equipped with conference facilities, such as the Cyprus Hilton, Nicosia has established Lefkosia as a popular meeting venue.
The capital is well equipped with sports facilities and there are many places worth visiting in the vicinity. From it's central position on the island Lefkosia is less than half an hour away from Larnaka town, the international airport and Lemessos; just over one hour from Agia Napa, Paralimni and the Troodos Mountains. It is a maximum of two hours from Paphos and Paphos Airport.
