cyprus travel guide
With such a diverse and rich history through the ages and with such natural beauty, Cyprus has more sights and museums that you can imagine.
In fact on a visit to Cyprus of just 1 or 2 weeks, it would be impossible to see it all. I guess this is another reason that Cyprus attracts a very high number of repeat visitors. Learn more about the history of Cyprus

The many museums of Cyprus
correspond to and illustrate the thousands of years of history to which the island has borne witness. They include archaeological and religious sites as well as traditional museum buildings. Among the latter, the most significant is the Cyprus Museum in Lefkosia. It presents the most comprehensive collection of archaeological artifacts under a single roof in the country.
The Byzantine Museum, with its vast collection of religious icons, is also located in the capital. The Pafos District Archaeological Museum, Mediaeval Castle, Lemesos and The Pierides Foundation Museum in Larnaka should also be high on visitors lists
