Archaeological Site of Amathous

The archaeological site of the ancient city of Amathous is located 11 kilometers east of Limassol. Amathous played a significant role in ancient Cyprus, being one of the main ancient royal cities, like Kourion. Although, unlike Kourion, it also served as a port.

Among other monuments of prehistoric architecture, Amathous can boast its importance in the rich history of the island of Cyprus. Ancient mythological legends tell that in Amathous, Theseus left pregnant Ariadne during the battle with Minotaur.

Amathous is one of the few city-kingdoms that has been presented to the present day. Many buildings were destroyed, some of the structures were stolen, and some were taken out by the British in the 17th-19th centuries. However, on the territory of Amathous, an ancient market square, the foundations of villas and houses, an early Christian basilica, the ruins of the temple of Aphrodite and tombs dating back to the early Iron Age of the Greco-Phoenician era have been preserved. Also, archaeologists discovered a water supply system and baths.

Ancient Kourion

One of the most interesting archaeological sites in Cyprus is the Kourion Archaeological Park, located on the site of an ancient city. This ancient city was founded in the 12th century BC and used to be one of the most wonderful cities in the Mediterranean. Partially destroyed by the earthquake and abandoned by the inhabitants after the raids, the city was never fully restored. Now Kourion is an architectural park.

Its grandiose Greco-Roman amphitheater has been completely restored, and the audience who attend a theatrical or musical performance in this pristine arena will not remain indifferent but receive a lot of unforgettable impressions. Nowadays, the amphitheater is one of the main venues for the International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama.

Visitors to the architectural and historical complex of Kourion can see numerous ruined old houses of the late Roman period with mosaic floors, get acquainted with the way of houses of the ancient Romans. The House of the Gladiators, the House of Achilles and the House of Eustolius are just some of the monuments of the early centuries. The floors in these houses are paved with mosaics. Of particular interest are the mosaics on the floors of the buildings that are mostly covered with them. Among the mosaics of the House of the Gladiators that adorn the eastern and southern wings of the courtyard, the most important are those that depict the battle scene of gladiators.

The Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates

The sanctuary is a temple complex built in honor of Apollo Hylates, the god of the forest, the patron saint of hunters and shepherds, who was considered the protector of Kourion. The name Hylates is evidently given to Apollo from Hellenistic times. Hence the name of the Sanctuary itself.

The sanctuary of Hylatsky was erected in the 8th century BC, and the cult of worship of Apollo was thriving for more than a thousand years - until the 4th century AD. Owing to archaeological excavations, it was possible to establish that the sanctuary was a sauna complex with baths, a palestra (a ring where sports events were held), a pilgrimage hall and a sanctuary. The columns and elements of the pediment of the Sanctuary, which tourists can see today, were found during excavations.

Limassol municipal park and Zoo

The square and the zoo, surrounded by lush pines, eucalyptus and cypresses, are located on the embankment in the central part of the city. The park has more than a century of history and is a great place for relaxing walks and family holidays. Two lion statues greet guests at the south entrance, watching over the garden and its visitors. Walking through the garden, you will see a magnificent sculpture of Christodoulos Sozos, who was once the mayor of Limassol and a member of parliament. In Cyprus he is hailed as a hero; his struggle for freedom and democracy thus far lives on in memory.

The Limassol Zoo presents many species of animals and birds, there are entertainment for children, cafes and recreational areas. The zoo was created in such a way that guests feel close contact with the animals that are housed there. For the animals, in turn, enclosures were designed that closely resemble a natural habitat of each species, so that they feel comfortable. The zoo features animals such as deer, llamas, ostriches, tigers, lions, vultures, monkeys, meerkats, turtles, as well as a wide variety of birds and reptiles from all over the world.

The main task of the zoo is research, protection, maintenance of the population of endangered species. The feature of the zoo is daily demonstrative feeding of animals with the purpose of close acquaintance.

Castles of Limassol and Kolossi

Limassol and Kolossi are two well-known medieval strongholds in Cyprus. Limassol Castle (Castle of Limassol) is situated in the old city not far from the old harbor near the port on the Palm promenade, and Kolossi is located in the village of Kolossi, on the western side of the city.

The Castle of Limassol was built to protect the port and the city from numerous attacks, like most castles of the Middle Ages, the wall thickness of the castle reaches two meters.

It is believed that the King of England Richard the Lionheart and Berengaria of Navarre got married in Limassol Castle in 1191. The castle was destroyed by a strong earthquake, but then restored and reconstructed. Today, this historic garrison houses the Cyprus Medieval Museum, which exhibits a collection of artifacts and items from the Middle Ages.

The Castle of Kolossi was established at the beginning of the 13th century, however, ambiguity and dissension about the date continue to surround historians. This is an example of extraordinary military architecture from the Middle Ages, and as soon as you enter the inside of the castle, you will plunge into a completely different world. The castle is a historical reminder of the reign of the Knights of St. John in the 13th century, who began to produce wine and process sugar cane in the commandery that stood on this land. The famous Cypriot Commandaria wine owes its name to this place.

Medieval Museum of Limassol

The castle was built on the site of a former Byzantine fortress. The Medieval Castle of Limassol, located next to the old harbor in the heart of the historical center of Limassol city, houses a medieval collection of the Cyprus Museum. In this castle, according to legend, King Richard the Lionheart of England married Princess Berengaria of Navarre, declaring her Queen of England in 1191 AD.

The Medieval Museum exhibits objects that reflect the historical development of Cyprus, its economic, social and religious life, as well as other aspects of daily life on the island from the 3rd to the 18th century AD. Weapons, armor, coins, crosses, Byzantine and medieval glazed ceramics, glassware, jewelry, coins, religious objects and architectural fragments of Byzantine and Gothic buildings are displayed in the museum. When visiting the museum, it is recommended to pay attention to the tombstones brought from the ancient temples of Nicosia and Famagusta.

In the hot summer months, it almost completely dries up, but even at this time, tourists do not stop visiting this amazing place.

Surely, the main attraction of the lake are pink flamingos that prefer this place for wintering. Flamingos feed on algae, insects, larvae, crustaceans and shrimps, which are precisely the reason for the color of their plumage. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get close to flamingos, but anyone can admire these beautiful creatures from afar. The so-called "pink clouds" hovering over the lake create an incredible spectacle that is a must see.

Thanks to the work of archaeologists, today everyone has the opportunity to visit the largest of the temples discovered during excavations - the Phoenician temple of the goddess of love and fertility Astarte. You can also see the ruins of stone tombs, the remains of tombs made of gold, ivory and bronze, city walls and copper smelters built from huge stone blocks.

Seafront and beach Finicoudes

The main tourist attraction of Larnaca is its seafront and the city beach of Finikoudes. The beach lies between the old and new posts. This is the most well-maintained beach. The Finikoudes promenade starts from Europe Square and stretches along the Finikoudes beach. Actually, the promenade is a strip of cafes, bars, clubs and restaurants on the seaside, where it is especially crowded during the summer months. Therefore, both locals and tourists, who are eager for gastronomic pleasures, meet and leisurely walk there.

Snorkelling and Scuba diving

Snorkeling and diving are the main water activities in Cyprus. The Cypriot waters are fraught with not only underwater caves and reefs, but also a beautiful world of unusual fish, shellfish and starfish. Many water excursions involving diving are organized there. Not far from Larnaca, divers can plunge the depth to see the wreckage of the Swedish Zenobia Ferry. Alternatively, you can set sail on a comfortable sailing yacht along the coast of Larnaca.

Besides camels, you can ride a pony or donkey. The park has a playground for children, a swimming pool and a restaurant serving Cypriot delicacies.

Larnaca Salt lake

One of the main attractions of Larnaca is Salt Lake, where about 80 species of migratory birds, including famous flamingos, inhabit. About 10,000 flamingos visit the lake every year. In July-August, the lake dries up, leaving a crust of salt up to 10 cm thick, turning into a salt desert, and in winter it is filled with water. In the Middle Ages, salt was mined in the lake for commercial purposes. Nowadays, Salt Lake is the most beautiful natural landmark of the island.

There is a sacred place near Salt Lake - Mosque of Umm Haram (Hala Sultan Tekke) and a healing stone. Since archaeological excavations were carried out, a visitor can see not only the mosque, but also the artifacts found.

Old city

Nicosia combines the old and the new: a lively modern commercial business center intertwined with ancient culture. The center of the city is the old quarter, surrounded by a fortification made of Venetian sandstone with heart-shaped bastions.

The sights of Nicosia are concentrated in the Old Town and its environs, surrounded by a picturesque star-shaped city wall, the moat of which turned into a park. A walk on the Old Town is a great pastime itself, despite the fact that some buildings (especially near the Green Line) are abandoned and falling apart.

The architecture of the city was evolved during the era of Ottoman rule, so mosques are found everywhere, giving the old city an oriental atmosphere. We suggest that you wander the narrow streets with overhanging balconies and the beautifully restored pedestrian area full of artisan shops, cafes and taverns.

Please note that many attractions in the Old City close early, so it is recommended to start the tour in the morning.

Cathedral of Saint John

A must-see in Nicosia is the Cathedral of St. John, decorated with ancient frescoes reflecting the discovery of the relics of St. Barnabas. The Cathedral of St. John (Agios Ioannis), of course, is inferior in scale to the great cathedrals of Europe, but it is no less magnificent. The cathedral annually attracts many pilgrims from all over the world.

The church of the cathedral is single-vaulted without a dome, and its high walls are covered with frescoes, which were created during the reign of Archbishop Philotheus (1734-1759) from 1736 to 1756. The themes of the frescoes mainly reflect biblical stories, but there are also frescoes that tell about the legendary struggle for independence of Cyprus.

On the southern wall you can see a painting of the tomb’s opening of the Apostle Barnabas in Salamis. Another element of the church is a magnificent carved iconostasis, which is covered with gold leaf. The four large icons on the iconostasis were painted by John Cornaro in 1795 and 1797. The Cathedral of St. John is the only church in which the interior wall paintings have been almost completely preserved to the present day. Near the Cathedral there is a wonderful museum, which displays Byzantine icons.

Shopping on the main streets of Nicosia

Nicosia offers the best shopping, from small souvenir shops to world-famous branded boutiques. Along Ledra Street, located in the heart of Nicosia, is a traditional shopping district.

Unlike Stassikratous Street, Ledra Street has extended opening hours on weekdays, with some shops open on both Saturday and Sunday. If you get tired of shopping, on the street you will find many different cafes and restaurants that feature with an exquisite menu and professional service.

Stassikratous Street, one of Nicosia's main shopping streets, is located in the buzzing modern city center, parallel to Makarios Avenue. This is a small street a little over 500 meters long. It fits for those who prefer leisurely shopping trips. Today, the street resembles a mini version of 5th Avenue/Bond Street, with top luxury brands such as Armani, Max Mara and Versace. There are also many watch and jewelry stores on this street. Major chains such as Marks and Spencer, Zara, etc. are located along the more modern Makariou Avenue.

In addition, on Stassikratous Street you can taste traditional dishes in famous restaurants, visit a patisserie and a popular Belgian chocolate shop.

Souvenir shopping at Laiki Geitonia
