Cyprus Online Travel Resources

In this post: Aphrodite’s Rock, the most educated cats, and Cyprus travel resources from general information about life on the island to list of hospitals to utilities and everything in between.

What Cyprus is famous for? The most common answer is that Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and eternal youth, was born there.

The place where she allegedly arose from the seafoam is appropriately called Aphrodite’s Rock now. It boasts some of the most amazing sunsets on the island.

However, there is another interesting thing about this Mediterranean island.

Cyprus is the feline kingdom. They are not your ordinary domesticated cats. No. They are independent creatures that proudly carry their tales high and may not even pay attention to you, unless, of course, you accidentally have a delicious treat in your hand.

On Greek-speaking island even cats know what π is

This furry trio surpassed all expectations by forming a perfect π. Come to think of it, π is the sixteenth letter of the Greek alphabet. Does this mean that these cats could read?

Do you, like us, love the land of most educated cats or just slow travel through Cyprus or planning to enjoy its fabulous beaches?

  1. There are cats all over the place you can see them running around the busy streets , during my short stay I noticed few cats that were ran over.

  2. Fabulous Elena, really smashing stuff. We loved our stay in Nicosia about a year ago. We also hit Paphos for a few days to enjoy the beach and the beautiful relics. Cyprus is a gem. The European country that few folks visit when doing their Euro tour.


    • Thank you, Ryan :). We loved Cyprus too. Funny thing that in three months there couldn’t find time to visit Nicosia. Definitely, coming back there one day.

      • Yep Nicosia was pretty neat and pretty basic too 😉 Most fascinating part of the city is the border between Turkish Cyprus and the other Cyprus. Last major city with a fence/border, since the Berlin Wall was destroyed decades ago.
