One of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, Cyprus sits at a maritime crossroads between Egypt, Syria, Turkey, and Greece. It is known as "The Jewel of the Mediterranean" and was considered the birthplace of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty.
10,000 years of civilization gather here on one island. Over the centuries, Cyprus has been invaded by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Lusignans, Genoese, Venetians, Ottomans, British, and Turks.
If you scratch the soil anywhere in Cyprus, you will find traces of its magnificent history. It was a popular vacation spot for ancient Romans, who would come to enjoy the hot springs and baths throughout the island. The ancient city of Salamis has been home to Assyrians, Egyptians, Persians, and Romans at various times.The popular UK artist Jenny Wheatley shared with us this beautiful image of the eastern coast of Cyprus. This part of the island is famous for its fine white sandy beaches with shallow turquoise waters.
