Geography Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and Northern Cyprus lies directly 70 km south of the Turkish mainland. Its neighbours include Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Israel and Greece. The Turkish Republic of North Cyprus makes up around one third of the island of Cyprus, and The Republic of Cyprus occupies the remaining two thirds to the south of the island. The total area of the entire island is approximately 9,252 sq km, and North Cyprus covers a total area of around 3,515 sq km. History It would be impossible to keep the history of the island of Cyprus short! It’s history, dating back to around 7000BC is rich with rulers and religions, from being part of the Roman Empire, an island given away by Richard the Lionheart, to being one of the most successful trade points in the world under the Lusignans and Venetians, to being conquered by the Ottoman Empire and subsequently then leased to the British when it fell into decline, in 1878. It then gained independence in 1960 under the Treaty of Zurich but unfortunately inter communal disagreements led the UN to intervene in 1964, with a final coup attempt in 1974 from Greece being blocked by the intervention of Turkey, ending with a dividing of the island to the north and south. A UN referendum in 2004, proposing unification, was voted against by the Greek Cypriot population in the south and so the island remains divided still today.
