The history of Cyprus is one of the oldest recorded in the world and its historical significance is disproportionate to its small size. The first signs of civilisation date to the ninth millennium B.C. The earliest known foreign settlements on the island were mainly of Phoenicians and Greeks, with Phoenician culture dominating the island’s eastern and southern parts.
Cyprus occupies an important role in Greek mythology being the birthplace of Aphrodite and Adonis, and home to King Cinyras, Teucer and Pygmalion.
Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus; a status it has enjoyed for 1000 years since the 10th century, though its beginnings date back 5000 years to the Bronze Age. It lies roughly in the centre of the island in the Mesaoria Plain, flanked by the beautiful northern range of Kyrenia Mountains with its distinctive ‘Pentadaktylos’ – the five finger mountain.
The capital presents two distinct faces: the old, original part of the city, surrounded by sturdy Venetian walls over 400 years old, and a busy modern metropolis.
THE LANDMARK NICOSIA
Located since 1967 in the center of Nicosia city, THE LANDMARK NICOSIA is a world class hotel and makes the perfect base for exploring all the area has to offer. The five-star hotel is superbly located in the city center, next to the business and shopping district and within walking distance of the city’s historic sites, museums and art galleries.
The Landmark Nicosia offers an impressive selection of meeting facilities with flexible meeting spaces, including a ballroom, to accommodate all types of events.
