THE ISLAND OF APHRODITE
Welcome to Cyprus! The island of sunshine, hospitality, myths and legends. This island is warmed by the Mediterranean sun all year round and has 320 days with sunshine.
Its history stretches back ten thousand years, with many civilizations and great characters. Both Alexander the Great and Cleopatra have laid claim to this island. Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean and is also known as ’the island of the gods’. The island was the mythological birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of Love. It is a varied island with the cleanest beaches in Europe and is rich in nature and culture. There is an air of carelessness and time seems to stand still, a feeling that is enhanced by the friendly hospitality of the people. Since the Turkish invasion in 1974, the Republic of Cyprus has been divided into a Greek Cypriot part in the south and a Turkish-occupied part in the north.
Cyprus has many faces: the hinterland with endless fruit tree plantations with juicy oranges, terraces with olive trees and vineyards, dreamy villages and leafy forests in the Troodos Mountains, wonderful beaches and archaeological excavations.
In short, a versatile holiday destination and the perfect location for our festival under the warming Autumn Sun.
