The Mediterranean island country of Cyprus, or the "Island of Aphrodite", is a magnificent destination for anyone who is looking to enjoy the sun, the sea and a place rich in history. You can fly with Austrian Airlines to this beautiful island and leave your worries at home. Cyprus is the third largest island of the Mediterranean and is a very popular tourist destination. It can accommodate the expectations of the most demanding party-goers at Pafos and Ayia Napa, or those just seeking to relax in villages and on the golden sand beaches in the Akarmas and Karpas peninsulas. For the avid walker, Cyprus offers paths through beautiful landscapes filled with an abundance of wild flowers and citrus trees. History buffs can visit sites dating from the Bronze age to more recent history.
