Pathos

It is believed that the first buildings in Paphos appeared as early as 300 BC, and it was here that the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite was born. Therefore, it is worth coming here for history, ancient buildings and legends. The main attraction of Paphos is the archaeological complex of the Tombs of the Kings. Here local residents built tombs for their patrons. Antique buildings and mosaics can also be seen in the Paphos Archaeological Park. The castle built by the Byzantines in the 13th century is also worth a visit. Throughout its history, it managed to be a monastery, a prison, and even a mosque! If you are afraid of not having time to see everything on your own, we advise you to surrender to the hands of experienced guides who will guide you through the most mysterious places of the city.

Larnaca

Larnaca, according to legend, was founded by the grandson of Noah. This city is the oldest in Cyprus, however, it attracts tourists not only with its history, but also with its pricing policy, shallow sea and an abundance of restaurants – it is an ideal place for families with children in Cyprus. With your child in Larnaca, you can go to the camel park, the Golden Donkeys donkey farm or the Lucky Star Park amusement park. If you are visiting a city without children, then be sure to climb the mountains to the IV century Stavrovouni Monastery and to the Aliki Lake, which, when dry, turns into a brilliant salt marsh.

Limassol

Luxury clubs, fish restaurants and yachts – this is Limassol. People do not go to this city for a beautiful view of the coastline or hiking in archaeological sites (although they are here). People come here for a couple of days to come off! For extreme sensations, go to Sayious Adventure Park, where you can ride a buggy, motorcycles and … shoot a bow! You can order a yacht trip from almost anywhere on the embankment, but if you are a wine lover, then Limassol will simply conquer you. In the vicinity of the city lies the famous Cyprus wine tour-route from 20 wine-making villages at once!

Ayia Napa

Cyprus cannot be imagined without beaches! You can soak up the seaside in almost every city, but the best beaches of the island are still in Ayia Napa. For example, on Nissi Beach you can not only sunbathe, but also get to the foam party. For a beautiful view with blue umbrellas and rocks, you need to go to Konnos Bay, but near the Makronisos beach you can see ancient tombs, access to which is free.

Ayia Napa has a very controversial status: many call the city the second Ibiza, while a huge number of ancient monasteries and sanctuaries are concentrated here. Therefore, if you are bored with lazy rest and constant parties, you can always go on a city tour.

Features of travel in times of COVID-19

From April 1, 2021, tourists arriving from Russia do not need to sit out a two-week quarantine. However, to enter the country, you must provide a certificate with the results of a PCR test for coronavirus, made no earlier than 72 hours before departure. Travelers will also need to retest upon arrival at their own expense (€ 30).

In addition, all tourists must register on the Cyprus Flight Pass government portal 24 hours prior to arrival on the island. But the conditions for obtaining a visa have not changed: it is still issued on the website of the Cyprus Embassy in Russia.

Many people believe that Cyprus is an exclusively beach holiday. However, the whole point is in the correct preparation of the route. Agree that the homeland of Aphrodite and Zeus cannot be a dull and not picturesque place!
