Interesting cities are scattered in between authentically rural, mountainous and coastal landscapes. You must spend a fair amount of time in the country in order to fully immerse yourself in the Cyprian culture. Home to castles and monasteries, mountains resorts, and vast expanses of forest, this country offers something for everyone.

Medical Care in Cyprus

In Cyprus, the quality of care provided is good, yet slightly more so in private clinics than in public health facilities. Most of the doctors practicing in the country have studied in the United States or United Kingdom. Nicosia is home to a new, well-equipped hospital center. Other establishments popular among foreigners include Limassol General Hospital, Larnaca General Hospital or Paphos General Hospital. The care offered is reliable, but the cost is quite substantial.

In order to source good quality and reliable drugs, you should visit the Dena Karacosta Pharmacy.

In the case of an emergency, dial 112.
