Agora, Λεμεσός

Zoo, Λεμεσός

What to expect from a zoological garden located inside a city like Λεμεσός? It is a smaller zoo, and it can be found close to the city center, directly at the sea.

Ancient Kourion, Επισκοπή

Just get a coffee somewhere and let them pass by.

Driving on the left, Κύπρος

When driving a car in Cyprus you can learn something about history: the island was once a colony of the British Empire! And there are even still today two British naval bases that belong to United Kingdom. For you this means mostly one thing: to drive on the left side of the road. Typically, this switch inside your head is easy, you just need to remember to give way to cars coming from the right when entering roundabouts. What always happens to me is that I try to enter the car on the front passenger side. Always good for a laugh…
