All are warmly welcomed in Cyprus with open arms. Many locals make a distinguished effort to not only learn the languages of people adopting the island as their home or business base (both English and Russian, for example, are widely spoken), but also their cultural customs.
The famed unhurried pace of the Mediterranean is best expressed in Cyprus, rewarding visitors and homeowners alike with a laid-back, stress-free approach to living. And perhaps this is why the island is also incredibly safe, boasting the lowest crime rate in Europe, and little to no traffic congestion and pollution.
The community spirit, of course, thrives in Cyprus, with nurturing contact and relationships with family members – both immediate and extended – enduring as being of the utmost importance in locals’ daily lives.
