Cyprus - one of the world's most popular tourist destinations is located in the hot and sunny Mediterranean. Officially the Republic of Cyprus, this country is a Eurasian island located in the East Mediterranean. Turkey sits to the North, the Levant to the West, and Egypt to the South with Greece sitting East-Southeast. Syria and Lebanon also sit to the East and Israel to the South East.
Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Cyprus sits at a crossroads between Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa. It is for this reason that Greek, Anatolian, Levantine and British influences have all played their part in the Cypriot culture.
