Discover Cyprus through

Nicosia, June 12, 2015/ Independent Balkan News Agency launches new section


Fast on its way to becoming the primary reference point for fresh new things to do in Cyprus, bilingual travel website has just launched a new themed itinerary section, giving readers the chance to experience various bespoke aspects of the island’s splendours, according to their individual needs and desires, announced editorial staff of this web site.

In the announcement, they explained that each itinerary has been especially curated by a dedicated team of local experts with an in-depth knowledge of the island. Taking travelers off-the-beaten track, on a journey to discover Cyprus the ‘insider’ way, the itineraries give visitors a truly unique opportunity to experience much more than the popular haunts and must-see places that the average guidebook provides.

“Many travelers arriving on the island today are keen to dig beneath the surface, to discover what lies well beyond the confines of their hotel, to take in the true meaning of Cypriot life, traditions and culture. But very often, they don’t know where to begin or how to plan their exploration of the country. Our itineraries have been specifically tailored to cater to a range of different tastes, each one guiding visitors through the spots they simply cannot miss. Whether they are dedicated foodies, history buffs, nature lovers or culture vultures, travellers can pick what most appeals to them as they plan a unique island holiday”, said editor, Zoe Christodoulides.

The itineraries include the ‘Flavours of Cyprus’, taking visitors on an epicurean adventure around the island’s culinary favorites; ‘Antiquity Calling’ for the cultural tourist looking to explore the fascinating history of Cyprus, ‘Beachy Bliss’, guaranteeing a tour of the island’s best beaches, and ‘The Buzz of the Capital’ providing a select pick of what to do in Nicosia. Soon to come is ‘For the Love of Vino’, giving visitors the chance to indulge in the Bacchus pleasures of the island’s fantastic rural wine routes, and the ‘Call of the Wild’, giving insight into some of the natural wonders of Cyprus’ mountains and countryside.

Itineraries vary between one to three days in length, taking travellers on a journey from morning to night, and include handy tips to ensure that they make the most of every part of their exploration.

Available in both English and Russian, offers unique and alternative information on a multitude of different aspects of local island life, including cool local eateries and hip city bars, hidden rural idylls and secret beaches or quirky museums and cultural events.

All sections of the website are updated on a regular basis, taking the specific needs of the holidaymaker into account according to the time of year
