Kyrenia – an unforgettable vacation in Cyprus
When visiting North Cyprus for the first time, Kyrenia will be a great place to stay. This historic city is located on the northern coast of Cyprus, and its life is concentrated around the unique port, or, as it is called here, Harbor, where you will be surrounded by various cafes and restaurants on the one hand and swinging fishing boats and ships on the other. As in all popular Mediterranean resorts, travelers can spend quite a lot of money on a chic hotel room in five-star Kyrenia hotels, but the cost spent on the trip can easily be compared to a surprisingly good value for money.
Any budget for a trip to the resort of Kyrenia begins with the choice of one of two ways to fly to Cyprus: using a direct flight to Ercan Airport in Northern Cyprus, which will include a transfer at the Turkish airport or crossing the border of Cyprus, or taking a direct flight to Larnaca Airport in Republic of Cyprus (southern half), which usually means shorter flight times. As a rule, airfares to Larnaca in southern Cyprus are cheaper, and international airlines offer a wide variety of departure points. Having landed at the airport of South Cyprus, drivers can rent a car and drive across the border, but you will need to buy additional insurance at the border, or use a taxi. The journey takes about 90 minutes from the airport to the center of Kyrenia. You do not need to open a visa to Northern Cyprus, there are several rules for crossing the border, but taxi drivers are familiar with the procedure for moving to Northern Cyprus, and they usually take care of documents, so visitors do not even need to get out of a taxi!
Hotels in Kyrenia offer a wide range of prices – from elegant 5-star to budget three-star hotels, but as in many Mediterranean countries, one should not rely heavily on star rating! Many budget hotels in Northern Cyprus will be good value for money. You can consult with the specialists of the Alliance Estate company about some of the most popular and inexpensive hotels in Kyrenia, such as Pia Bella, Dom Hotel, Oscar Resort, Altinkaya.
In Cyprus, tourists can have many chances for a wonderful holiday. They can go to historical places, spend their time at spas in expensive hotels, or spend their free time just listening to the soft music of the Mediterranean waves. They can enjoy sailing on a ship, take scuba diving lessons or take a paragliding flight. Here you can try trekking, mountain climbing, go on a forest expedition or hike in order to study the rare flowers that grow only in Cyprus. Tourists can simply explore the whole island with their friends, family members, and they do not need much time to appreciate the unique beauty of the island. And for those who decide to make profitable real estate investments in Cyprus, the ALLIANCE agency managers will take you all over the island for free and show you all the best real estate objects.
Walking along the narrow streets of the old city of Kyrenia can take you into a fantasy world, a world of bygone days. You will find so many dilapidated buildings, nicely blending into the space between the newly built latest architectural designs. Street vendors will certainly grab your attention, and you won’t be able to limit yourself and not buy something for friends or relatives.
Kyrenia looks better during sunrise and sunset. Those who like to photograph nature will be able to fully enjoy their hobbies. On one of the beaches you can catch rare moments of excavation of turtles, or of a unique sunset, slowly drowning in the sea. The sky is slowly turning purple and the water of the sea sparkling with unique lighting can be truly spectacular. You should not miss the chance to see the growing beauty of the passing day or the beginning of a new one. The island is simply regarded as an island of tourists.
Cyprus attracts travelers with its mild climate, warm and clear sea, long tourist season, pleasant service and delicious food. The Russians also like it because they can get a visa to the southern part of the country right from home, and you don’t need a visa to visit Turkish Northern Cyprus.
On a relatively small island, not only two opposing states fit, but also two mountain ranges of Cyrenea and Troodos, the capital Nicosia, also divided between the Republic of Cyprus and Northern Cyprus, and a large number of ancient monuments lying at the intersection of European and Eastern cultures .
