Although North Cyprus is best known for its beaches, it also has a lot to offer those interested in ancient history and archaeology. Around the island, there are several major archaeological sites. Salamis ancient city is one of the most amazing locations in North Cyprus, around 10 kilometers north of the lovely walled medieval town of Famagusta and 6 kilometers north of modern Famagusta. Salamis was an ancient Greek city-state founded by Teucer, son of Salamis island’s monarch Telamon.

North Cyprus has a distinct atmosphere and other fascinating features that the average tourist is looking for. Northern Cyprus has fewer large firms and commercial chains than the southern part of Cyprus because it is not a member of the European Union.

If you are looking for a more peaceful holiday option, Northern Cyprus might be the place for you.
