About CyprusSatellite view is showing the island of Cyprus, the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The island is geographically already part of Asia (Middle East), located about 80 km (50 mi) south of the Turkish coast and about 120 km (75 mi) west of Syria's coast. The island is shared by three political entities: the Republic of Cyprus, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the United Kingdom with their Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia.
Cyprus' landscape is dominated by the Troodos Mountains and the Kyrenia Range, the central plain of the Mesaoria and plains along the southern coast. Highest peak is Mount Olympus with 1,952 m (6,404 ft), the mountain part of the Troodos range.

But Cyprus is divided since 1974 into the Greek-speaking Republic of Cyprus in the southern part of the island and the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. UN peacekeeping forces (UNFICYP) maintain a buffer zone between the south and the north but the division remains unresolved until today, despite pressure from the EU and the United Nations (UN).
