If you’re moving to Larnaca, Cyprus, you need to adapt to the lingering lifestyle of the natives, described well enough in the Cypriot’s prominent saying ‘siga-siga’ = ‘slowly-slowly’. But since the last ~20 years Cyprus is a European Union member, modernization came to the island (in the same ‘slowly-slowly’ manner) with all the amenities and goods. But with this, the salaries soared too high, and the prices followed. Greed came with modernization too, as always. Plus after 2013 things go down, as overall in Europe. So, it won’t be easy to find a cheap apartment to rent, the bus fares may surprise you and a regular meal might look too simple for 15$.

Most citizens speak Greek but you could also find people who speak English. There are beautiful beaches and it’s mostly always sunny. There aren’t many people, which explains the quiet and relaxing area. Overall the island itself is very small so you could easily drive to another city and it would only take you about 20-30 minutes.

Larnaca is a city in Cyprus, an island close to Greece and Turkey. Therefore, Larnaca is very hot during summer. It has beautiful beaches and clear waters. The food is delicious and fresh. There are many historical places you can visit here, as the island is Aphrodite’s Island; there is a place here believed to have been here bathing waters. It’s a great and really calm place if that is what you are looking for.
