Nicosia is the capital of the Republic of Cyprus and also the administrative, commercial, educational, religious and cultural centre of the island. Geographically, Nicosia is situated in the centre of the island and is linked to all main towns and cities by a modern highway system. As a low tax destination, Cyprus offers an attractive package to anyone who wishes to live on the island. You can enjoy the benefits of island life in the Mediterranean and take advantage of the many incentives offered for business or leisure. Nicosia offers the sophistication of living in a cosmopolitan city and also offers old year charm with its abundance of historical sites. Although Nicosia is not a coastal town, it is only a half hour drive away from the glistening blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. For those who prefer the cool air of the forest, the stunning Troodos Mountains are only a short drive away.
