The gastronomic pleasure of Cyprus should be savoured at an unhurried pace, to discover new flavours and sample the many traditional dishes. And what better way to learn than to follow local custom with typical "meze" (meaning mixture) which is usually a little of everything that's available that day in a tavern or restaurant. Besides this typically Cypriot type of meal a visitor is offered versatility. There are plenty of charming fish taverns by the sea, and numerous restaurants serving Chinese, Arabic, European and Indian food.

Cyprus is an independent sovereign Republic with a presidential system of government. Under the 1960 Constitution, executive power is exercised by the President of the Republic, elected by universal suffrage for a five-year term of office.
