Cyprus is the birthplace of the Goddess Aphrodite. The country is situated in the crossroads between Europe and Asia. History has left a mark on today’s Cyprus. It’s a complex blend of ancient Greek and Roman buildings, castles and walls from Ottoman Empire times, and modern and vibrant Cyprus as we know it today. All of these periods perfectly blend together, creating the perfect travel destination for travelers from all around the world. 

Some of the oldest churches are indeed located in Cyprus and protected under UNESCO. Many amazing Cypriot cities are simply underrated and still not visited by many tourists. Such a city is Limassol, the second-largest city in the country. Once a small port town, Limassol has grown into a modern city full of tourism potential. The new part offers dining places and café places. The old town has important historical landmarks to visit. These are the things you just can’t miss visiting while you stay in Limassol, Cyprus.


The future of Limassol is in tourism. What will mostly attract tourists in the future is the soon opening City of Dreams Mediterranean, the will-be biggest casino resort in Europe. The casino is expected to open its door for gambling enthusiasts in 2021. Photos are regularly published on the website about the construction’s progress. The casino will feature more than 1000 slot machines, around 100 poker tables, and a gaming area that exceeds 2.500 sq. City of Dreams Mediterranean is a come true for every gambling enthusiast.
