What is Cyprus and its people all about?

Cyprus is an island of incredible natural beauty situated in the Mediterranean Sea, but there is much more to it than that! Cyprus is also an immensely diverse little place, both in its people and culture. This project was inspired by our fellow Swedes over at Curators of Sweden; what we aim to do here is to show the world a glimpse of Cyprus through the eyes of its people.

Every week, someone new will be @JustACypriot, talking about anything and everything to do with Cyprus, its people and more via our Twitter account.

So let's #DiscoverCyprus together!

Getting Involved

If you would like to be @JustACypriot for a week, then all you have to do is drop us an e-mail at i.am@justacypriot.com including the following information:

  • Your Twitter handle, along with how often you use Twitter
  • What are your interests and what gets you really excited?
  • What is your occupation?
  • Are you planning a trip anywhere in Cyprus where you can snap some awesome photos to showcase?
Aside from all of the above, feel free to include any other information, links to social networking profiles or websites that you feel are representative of yourself.


Every country around the world is unique in its own way - in culture, religion, food, nature, sports and the list goes on. What we aspire to do by launching this project is to connect (local) Cypriots with people from around the world who want to get a real taste of Cyprus, in order to give them an insight into what we are all about and how they can best enjoy our beautiful island.
