Limassol is the second largest city of Cyprus, the home of the island’s main port, and a bustling holiday resort. Legends of kings and kingdoms, and the origins of the island’s wine making industry characterize the Limassol region, which embodies both the ancient and the modern.
Limassol is situated between the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains and the Mediterranean coast. In the last decades, Limassol became the center of foreign investment in Cyprus, and the skyline changed accordingly.
The region also encompasses two unique wetlands. Germasogeia Dam is a peaceful place to relax, take a stroll, or enjoy a spot of angling, whilst Akrotiri Salt Lake is perfect for observing nature and wildlife (especially birds). The environmental significance of the Salt Lake and its surrounding area are showcased at the new installations of Akrotiri Environmental Centre.
