Limassol is the second largest city in Cyprus, with an urban population of 160,000 in 2001. he Port of Limassol is one of the busiest ports in the Mediterranean transit trade and the largest port in Cyprus. It has also become one of the most important tourism, trade, and service-providing centres in the area. Limassol’s historical centre is located around its medieval Limassol Castle and the Old Port. Today the city spreads along the Mediterranean coast and has extended much farther than the castle and port, with its suburbs stretching along the coast to Amathus. To the west of the city is the Akrotiri and Dhekelia, the British Overseas Territory.
Limassol, a city counting centuries of history, is located between two of the most renowned ancient kingdoms of the island, Amathous at the east and Kourion at the west.
As the southernmost part of Cyprus, it is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, enjoying the benefits of a coastal town. At the same time it is framed, on the other site, by Troodos Mountains and thus ideally combines seafront and Mountain View.
Limassol, with nearly 155.000 residents, has been rendered as the centre of tourism, trade and offshore companies due to its long tradition in various economic sectors. Its strategic position that facilitates both, aerial and maritime access, the solid educational and professional infrastructure as well as the satisfactory living standard have been some core factors of our city’s evolvement. It is not by chance that it is called the city of fun. It is widely known for its rich tradition in arts and it hosts several cultural events through the year.
