Cyprus is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Cyprus is the third largest and third most populous island in the Mediterranean, and a member state of the European Union. The earliest known human activity on the island dates to around the 10th millennium BC. Archaeological remains from this period include the well-preserved Neolithic village of Khirokitia, and Cyprus is home to some of the oldest water wells in the world. The Republic of Cyprus is divided into six districts: Nicosia, Famagusta, Kyrenia, Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos.
Situated on the south-west coast of Cyprus, Paphos is the ideal holiday destination for families seeking sunshine and relaxation. Yet there is more to Paphos than that: lovers of archaeology, history and culture will find a wealth of attractions. Whether you are devotee of archaeology, folklore, ethnography or the Byzantine Empire, you will find something to interest you in one of Paphos' twelve museums. Beyond Paphos itself, it is only two miles to the Tombs of the Kings, a Unesco World Heritage Site. For sports enthusiasts, Paphos offers a variety of water sports and has three golf courses. What's more, you can go horse riding, cycling or hiking in the nearby countryside. From the picturesque harbour with its medieval castle, you can enjoy a trip on a catamaran or perhaps a speedboat. If you want to do some souvenir shopping before you go home, Paphos is the perfect place for it.
