The Grand Haydar Pasha Mosque in Cyprus (In Turkish)   
Greetings wonderful viewers, and welcome to The World Around Us.
Cyprus is an island country that enjoys the warm Mediterranean sunlight and sparkling turquoise waters all year round. This beautiful island, covered with verdant mountains and valleys, is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.
Legend tells that it is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. The island has also been associated with Apollo, god of arts and music. Situated at the east-most edge of the Mediterranean, Cyprus has been the crossroads of Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa, and thus celebrates a cultural and religious diversity. As the history of Cyprus can be traced to 9,000 years ago, the country is famed for her great archeological and cultural heritage, such as Neolithic settlements, ancient Greek theaters, and Byzantine arts. Many of them have been included in the World Heritage List of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
