CYPRUS is an island on the north-east part  of the Mediterranean Sea. It covers an area of 9,251 square kilometers. The myth of the birth of the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, emerging through the foam of the sea waves, can be compared to the geological birth of Cyprus, that the island rose from the ocean.
