Cyprus or the Republic of Cyprus is an island in the eastern Mediterranean. Cyprus is the 3rd largest and populated island in the south of Turkey. It also shares borders with Syria, Egypt, and southeast Greece. Cyprus is under UK’s administration in 1878 and was annexed by Britain.
Cyprus is the tourist hub of the region with at least 20 percent of the whole tourist population. The geography and natural sights in Cyprus tend to amuse everybody vising the region and increase the global information about the region. Based on the current records, the economy of Cyprus is stated as a high-income economy. Most of the income comes from the tourist business held by the republic and as of 1961 when Cyprus became a member of the commonwealth.
For living and travel purposes, Cyprus has a lot to offer with its advantages of course, such as beautiful natural sights to visit. The economy and good job positions make Cyprus a good place to live too. The cost of living is not that high but affordable with reasonable incomes and expenses. Also with the presence of a semi-arid weather situation, you will be experiencing a balanced climate change, including cold winters and hot summers.
