Limassol

Limassol (Greek: Λεμεσός, Lemesos; Turkish: Limasol) is the second-largest city of Cyprus, with a population of 201.257 (2004 census), the largest city in geographical size, and the biggest municipality of the island.

The city is located on Akrotiri Bay, on the island's southern coast and it is the capital of Limassol District.

It is the biggest port in the Mediterranean transit trade. Limassol has since then become one of the most important tourism, trade and service-providing centre in the area. Limassol is renowned for its long cultural tradition. A wide spectrum of activities and a great number of museums and archaeological sites are available to the interested visitor.

Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, so during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis (new town). Limassol's tourist strip now runs east along the coast as far as Amathus. To the west of the city is the Akrotiri Sovereign Base Area of the United Kingdom.

Limassol also attracts a wide range of tourists mostly during the summer season to be accommodated in its several luxurious hotels and apartments. Limassol is also home to the Cyprus University of Technology.
