Cyprus Museum

The Cyprus Museum is located in southern Nicosia but it shows bits and pieces from the whole island — as befits a national museum. Normally we find the really ancient artifacts (formless neolithic stuff or those well-worn Bronze-Age implements) rather boring. But in this museum there were some surprisingly interesting and well-presented exhibits from the earlier periods. Some of these actually show distinctly Egyptian influences: in a sense not at all unusual, as Egypt lies more or less around the corner. But for us Cyprus was always a European, a Greek island.
