Cyprus is the third largest island east of Mediterranean Sea and it’s almost near the south of Turkey and the capital is Nicosia.
In 2004, Cyprus joined the European Union and could hold the six-month rotating Presidency of the European Union in 2012. Recently, an international lifestyle review ranked Cyprus as the 5th best relocation destination in the world. Based on a range of leisure and business indicators, the country stood alongside Switzerland, made it to the top five and was ranked ahead of Monaco, Madrid and London.
