You can find the island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea, in the corner of the Turkish-Syrian border. The country is divided into two parts. The southwest is Greek and the northeast is Turkish. Even the capital Nicosia, also known as Lefkosia, is divided into a Greek and Turkish part. Cyprus became a member of the European Union in 2004 and in 2008 the euro was introduced as the national currency. In Cyprus, vehicles are driven on the left side of the road, which is good to know if you plan to rent a car on the island. There are three Cypriot airports which are used for international air travel. Ercan Airport in the Turkish part of the island is mainly used for charter flights.
