Today, I’m showing you the last picture of Cyprus, this month.
I hope you like this island, “technically” this part of the island; the other part will come later.
And now we’re moving to different continent…
Stay tuned and see you in September! 🙂
The Tombs of the Kings is a large necropolis. Besides its name, no kings were buried there, but mostly rich aristocrats.
I was very impressed by the Tombs of the Kings; they look amazing, and remind me a bit churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia.
Paphos Archaeological Park is a large area that includes different ancient sites, ruins and mosaics; e.g., Houses of Dionysus, Theseus, Orpheus, the Four Seasons; the Asklepieion, the Papos Castle ruins, as well the Tombs of the Kings.
Probably, it’s a must-see for everyone visiting Cyprus.
Well, Cyprus is a very interesting and nice island, so you don’t really need a reason. 😉
But two main things that probably drive people to go to Cyprus are coast and history.
You can enjoy the weather, relax by the sea and explore the ancient sites (well, dating from the New Stone Age through to the Roman Empire).

As they write: “Cyprus is an open-air museum of prehistoric settlements, classical Greek temples, Roman theaters and villas, Early Christian basilicas, Byzantine churches and monasteries, Crusader castles, Gothic cathedrals, Venetian fortifications, Moslem mosques, and British colonial-style buildings.” 🙂
Spring and autumn are the best periods to visit Cyprus.
It’s still nicely warm, but not extremely hot; and it’s usually not so crowded as in summer.
In winter, some places may be closed, so check details before planning your holidays.
I was in Cyprus in May and it was perfect. 🙂
The United Nations Buffer Zone in Cyprus is kind of border line between the Republic of Cyprus and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. It was established in 1964. It covers about 4% of the island’s area.
Cyprus is divided between two countries and cultures of Greek and Turkish Cypriots.
The situation is complicated and affects travelers, that’s why I mention about it.
Otherwise, it’s a travel blog, so I avoid to talk about politics.
And also while being in Cyprus, it’s better to avoid discussions about it…
