Cyprus is an island nation located in the Eastern mediterranean, south of Turkey and Greece. Greek mythology says it is the birthplace of the ancient Greek goddess of love Aphrodite, however Cyprus’s modern history has been dominated by tension between its Greek and Turkish inhabitants.

A major tourist destination in the Mediterranean, Cyprus has successfully diversified its traditionally agrarian economy, to both tourism and by becoming an important financial hub, especially for investors from Russia and Eastern Europe. Greek Cypriots comprised the majority of the population, with Turkish Cypriots next, and others making up the rest of the Cypriot population. There are also over 10,000 people of Russian origin living in Cyprus.
