History is all over the unique island…

The island of Cyprus is set in the Mediterranean with a strategic position which has been prized by conquerors throughout history. North Cyprus still retains many traces of the civilisations which have made this island their home – monumental buildings, churches, mosques, palaces and castles.

The history of North Cyprus dates back to the Neolithic period with the earliest remains dating back to 9000 BC. Over the millennia the island has been ruled by the Phoenicians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Persians and Greeks. More recently, the island was under British colonial rule and since 1974 the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus has operated independently from the south.
