    Cyprus is an island country located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, south of Turkey and west of Syria. It is the third largest and third most populated country within the Mediterranean, with a population of about 1,346,000 inhabitants. The capital city, which just so happens to be the most populated, is Nicosia.

    The physical geography of Cyprus is dominated by two mountain ranges – the Troodos Mountains and the Kyrenia Range. The highest point within Cyprus is Mount Olympus, with an altitude of 1,953 meters, or 6,404 feet. Mount Olympus is located within the center of the Troodos Mountains. Cyprus is also home to the Cyprus Mediterranean forests, which ranked 7.06/10 on the Forest Landscape Integrity Index, meaning that it is a very healthy forest with little deforestation or risk factors. When it comes to the climate, Cyprus exhibits a subtropical climate, as well as semi-arid climates in the northern parts of the country. Cyprus has one of the warmest climates within the Mediterranean region of the European Union.In the ancient times of Cyprus, elephants, hippopotamuses, as well as a large number of deer and boar lived. Currently, the largest animal one could find in Cyprus would be the agrino, which is a subspecies of sheep. Snakes were common to find during ancient times, however they are now rare within the country. Green and loggerhead turtles reside on beaches near the coasts, and are also protected animals by law. Cyprus also lays exactly in the middle of a bird migration route, making it a destination for many birds to reside during winters.

    Cyprus is currently experiencing a water shortage. In the past, the country has relied on rainwater to provide for household water. However, in the last 30 years, the amounts of rain within the country have decreased. Solutions to this shortage have been found, however the demand for water keeps increasing, due to local population growth, immigration, and tourists visiting Cyprus. Along with this, water supply has started to decrease due to the amounts of droughts the country experiences.

    Cyprus serves as a presidential republic, with the current president being Nicos Anastasiades. The republic is split into six regions, which are as follows: Nicosia, Famagusta, Kyrenia, Larnaca, Limassol, and Paphos. When it comes to the economy, a lot of income is made due to agriculture. In fact, about one third of all of Cyprus’ land is arable and irrigated. The main crops include grapes, fruits, potatoes, grains, vegetables, olives, as well as carobs. Some of the main livestock produced within Cyprus are sheep, goats, pigs, and poultry. Some other various exports of Cyprus include petroleum, cheeses, packaged medicaments, passenger and cargo ships, as well as special purpose ships.

    Lastly, here are some fun facts about Cyprus:

    The world’s oldest wine label belongs to Cyprus, and it is called “Commandaria”.
    Cyprus is the world’s first nation to include the shape of the country on its flag.
    Cyprus experiences sunshine for 300 days out of the year!
