Friday November 10, 2017 (14:54:05)

The Republic of Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean region is known for its slow pace of life and relaxed lifestyle, meaning it’s an ideal location for expats looking for a more laidback experience.

In addition, the country has a high standard of education. Cyprus’s cost of living is affordable compared to the average cost in the European Union (EU).

An Expat Guide To The Cost Of Living In Cyprus

Monday February 06, 2017 (16:40:41)

The cost of living in the Republic of Cyprus has been significantly affected by the country’s banking crisis. The problem is the measures that the European Union imposed on Cyprus in exchange for a bail-out loan and the shrinking economy.
