Life in Cyprus
The beautiful island-nation of Cyprus is located in the south-eastern basin of the Mediterranean Sea, at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa. It is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, covering an area of 9,251 sq. km. with a population of 780,000. Cyprus offers a modern cosmopolitan society amidst a superb scenery of high mountain ranges, pine forests and fertile plains. Breath-taking coastlines and sunny beaches, and a historical and archaeological heritage of ten thousand years make the island the ideal place to live and study.
Cyprus enjoys warm dry summers with an average temperature of 35°C and rainy mild winters with an average temperature of 12°C. Summer begins in mid-May and continues up to mid-October; winter begins in December and continues up to March. Spring and autumn are mild and pleasant.
Because of its geopolitical importance, Cyprus has attracted many foreign conquerors, from Cleopatra and the Venetians to the Ottomans and the British, each leaving their mark on the island.
Cyprus offers an enviable lifestyle in a clean and healthy environment with a high standard of living. Living and working in Cyprus are directly related to fabulous weather, beautiful nature, art and culture, safety, security, and above all, hospitable and warm people. It is the combination of all these factors that makes the experience of living on the island extremely desirable and attractive. The balance between work and family part of everyday life, is unique and truly difficult to match.
The UNDP Human Development Index Report 2013 ranked Cyprus 31st out of 187 countries for the quality of life.
The Knight Frank Report ranked Cyprus in the Fall of 2013 as the 5th best place for lifestyle among major European cities and other competitive destinations. The report was also published in the Financial Times in October 2013.
Cyprus offers a wonderful environment for a very comfortable standard of living
Arts and culture have a long tradition in Cyprus with historical monuments dating back to 10,000 BC. In the capital of Lefkosia, there are over seventeen museums showcasing a broad array of archaeological collections, byzantine icons, coinage, paintings, and other cultural treasures. Cyprus boasts the works of several artists and painters and the gallery community has grown steadily in the last few years as the Performing Arts are flourishing. Throughout the year, local and international festivals, concerts of renowned performers and events take place in ancient open air amphitheaters, including international independent film festivals, annual classical music festivals and an opera festival at the end of summer.
In the recent years a burgeoning fashion milieu has grown from numerous young, creative and entrepreneurial fashion designers, many of whom have trained in the world’s renowned art and design institutions and fashion capitals.
Gastronomy and wine have a long tradition in Cyprus. Local cuisine based on the Mediterranean diet provides several culinary treasures ranging from healthy salads, the famous halloumi cheese and vegetable appetizers, to main courses which include goat meat on the spit, pork reduced in wine, and scrumptious honey dipped desserts as well as recipes with preserved fruits dating back hundreds of years.
Stress levels are comparatively low and business is still largely done with a personal touch and slower pace of life.
Crime rates are very low and the sense of safety and security is quite high across the country.
Commutes are minimal. The island has a developed network of four lane highways linking all main destinations. One can drive from the capital, Lefkosia, to the beach in Larnaca, in about 30 minutes.
With pleasant weather throughout the year, sports aficionados can ski in February, swim and kite surf until October, bike and play tennis and golf all year round!
