Troodos Mountains


Troodos Mountains

Troodos is the biggest mountain range of Cyprus, located in the center of the island. Troodos' highest peak is Mount Olympus at 1,952 metres.

Troodos mountain range stretches across most of the western side of Cyprus, offering cool sanctuary and idyllic hours spent in long walks in its scented pine forests in summer and winter sports and ski-ing in winter. There are many famous mountain resorts, Byzantine monasteries and churches on mountain peaks, and nestling in its valleys and picturesque mountain villages clinging to terraced hill slopes. There are 9 churches in Troodos that are counted among Unesco's World Heritage Sites and several monasteries, of which the Kykkos monastery is the most famous and rich.

amazing....why the road signs only in greek?:(

Zohar, due to it's British colonial past the majority of people speak English and many street signs are indeed in English.

I know too Cyprus is popular with Israeli tourists.

Ayia Napa
The party town

Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa (Greek: Αγία Νάπα today officially transliterated into English as Agia Napa) is a resort on at the far eastern end of the south coast of the island of Cyprus. In recent years it has changed from being a family holiday destination to being a party capital, similar to Ibiza. In particular, it has become popular as the summer holiday destination for followers of London's UK Garage music scene.
