Best Places to Visit in Cyprus

Cyprus is a small island in the Mediterranean seas. Nowadays, the island is divided into two parts; North and South. North side of the island belongs to the Turkish Cypriots and the South side of the island belongs to the Greek Cypriots. As an islander, I want peace in my country and all around the world 🙂 This blog provides images and the descriptions of the best touristic places of the small island.

Troodos Mountains are the highest mountains in Cyprus. Winter season is the best time to visit Troodos Mountains because it is covered by snow. For a great skiing destination, do not forget to visit Troodos Mountains in your holiday during winter season.

Three Excellent Foods of Cyprus

Cyprus has a famous and unique mixture of Greek and Turkish customs within the sole Mediterranean cooking culture.

In order to analyze the traditional food of Cyprus, Kleftiko is one of the reputed and delicious Cypriot dish, which is made from the lamb’s legs. It is possible to cook Kleftiko at both ground and baking oven. Kleftiko also served with the potatoes baked in the same oven and splashed with lemon juice.

Another famous and delicious meat food in Cyprus is Souvla. Before the cooking souvla, chefs don’t have to do anything with lamb or pork. They cut meat into the big portions and cook on the open fire for an hour and a half. Barbecue is the best way to cook souvla and during the first hour, souvla achieve golden brown color on the high above the coal. Souvla is usually served with salad, chips and Halloumi cheese.

Halloumi is another reputed and delicious Cypriot food and also known as Cypriot cheese which is made from the blend of goat’s and sheep’s milk. The cooking of the Halloumi is very easy because it Halloumi has a high melting point which enables chefs to fry and grill this food. Halloumi is also used in Cypriot cuisine as an independent dish and in salads. At the summer, Halloumi is very delicious with the watermelon. In 1999, Halloumi was registered and officially became a product of Cyprus.
