Where is Cyprus?

Several people apparently find this blog when trying to find out where Cyprus is. So this post is for anyone who still doesn't know.

Cyprus is a small island at the Eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. It's just South of Turkey, West pf Lebanon, North of Egypt. Politically it's part of Europe - it became part of the European Union a few years ago, and will join the euro currency zone in 2008 - although geographically it's closer to Asia. It's known as the cross-roads between the East and the West; it's convenient for travel to Africa as well.

You can see Cyprus on this map of Europe; it's the little island at the bottom, furthest to the right. Click it - or the word 'Cyprus' in the list of countries - and you'll find the Lonely Planet information about Cyprus.
