Cyprus rose from the sea when the African and Eurasian plates run into each other just like two strangers coming together to form a special bond. Situated at the crossroads of three continents, this island has formed a 'bridge' connecting nations and cultures. This has been in turn a factor, which shaped its history and culture. Cyprus' history is a tale of struggles and conquests, but also ultimately of a magical melting pot of civilizations. From Neolithic settlements, Greek temples and amphitheatres, Roman villas with mosaic floors, old Christian basilicas, Byzantine churches and monasteries and medieval Templar castles to blossomed yards in picturesque villages, international airports, busy ports, luxury hotels, modern hospitals, world-class academic institutions and a wealth of services; Cyprus is made of meeting points and passages, where people and ideas intersect.
