Cyprus – Sanctuary of Apollo – Akrotiri and Dhekelia

Sanctuary of Apollo, Akrotiri and Dhekelia, Cyprus

Sanctuary of Apollo is another Archeological Site in Akrotiri, Cyprus. It’s located about 2 km from Kourion. So don’t forget to visit is, while being in Kourion.
Sanctuary of Apollo is a relatively small place, and I had the impression that not so many people visit it; at least it felt quite calm. 🙂

Cyprus – 4 Areas

Cyprus

It would be natural to think that island of Cyprus belongs to the Republic of Cyprus.
But it’s not true…

There are actually 4 political areas on the island of Cyprus:
-the Republic of Cyprus (recognized internationally);
-the occupied part of Cyprus – Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (not recognized internationally);
-the UN buffer zone – kind of border line between the Republic of Cyprus and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (it’s about 4% of the island’s area);
-Akrotiri and Dhekelia – the British military sovereign base areas.

Cyprus – Introduction

Cyprus

Welcome in August.
This month all my blog is going to be about island Cyprus.
However, I will not cover this time the northern part of the country, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, that Northern Cyprus acts like a separate country, however, technically it’s an occupied by Turks part of the Cyprus.
In August, I’ll show you pictures from the Republic of Cyprus and Akrotiri and Dhekelia (will explain later what it is).
