Visit Cyprus as a language traveller on holiday

The island of Cyprus is situated in the eastern part of the Mediterranean sea, between three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa. It has a strong international character which it has retained since the medieval and renaissance periods, when it emerged as a colony for three different empires – the Venetian, the Ottoman and the British Empire. Cyprus combines a fascinating cultural background with a laid back, fun lifestyle. It is, therefore, ideal for people seeking relaxation and education.
