Cyprus is situated in the northeastern corner of the Mediterranean, at the meeting point of Europe, Asia and Africa. Since the dawn of history, Cyprus has been one of the most interesting areas of the region and has a rich and visible cultural history. Ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans along with Crusaders, Byzantines, Franks and Ottomans have all left a powerful legacy for the modern visitor to see and admire. Cyprus is endowed with golden beaches, virgin green forests and other natural wonders. The environment is one of the healthiest in the world, free from pollution and the other ill-effects of industrialized countries. Crime is almost non-existent. Cyprus enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean climate. Apart from the light rainy season between November and March, Cyprus is sunny all the time. Mean temperatures range from 8oC (42oF), during the coldest month of December, to 35oC (96oF) during the hottest month of August.
The weather, however, is not the only attractive feature of the island the Cypriot people are equally famous for the warm and friendly welcome they extend to visitors. Greek and Turkish are the official language of Cyprus. English is widely spoken. The Cyprus economy is booming and political stability is firmly established. Tourism (hotels and restaurants) in particular plays an important role in the economy. In May 2004, Cyprus officially became a member of the European Union and thus bridged Europe to the Middle East and the rest of the world. Having emerged as one of the region-s leading business and financial centers, the island enjoys competitive advantages in areas such as tourism, consultancy, shipping, telecommunications, banking, and insurance.
