Limassol is a city on the southern coast of Cyprus. Limassol is the second largest urban area in Cyprus, with an urban population of 160,000-176,700.
The Port of Limassol is one of the busiest ports in the Mediterranean transit trade and the largest port in Cyprus. It has also become one of the most important tourism, trade, and service-providing centres in the area. Limassol is renowned for its extensive cultural traditions, and is home to the Cyprus University of Technology. A wide spectrum of activities and a number of museums and archaeological sites are available to the interested visitor. Consequently, Limassol attracts a wide range of tourists mostly during an extended summer season to be accommodated in a wide range of hotels and apartments. A large marina lies near the old town, 500 meters from the Limassol medieval castle.
Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, and during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis (new town). Limassol's historical centre is located around its medieval Limassol Castle and the Old Port. Today the city spreads along the Mediterranean coast and has extended much farther than the castle and port, with its suburbs stretching along the coast to Amathus. To the west of the city is the Akrotiri Area of the British Overseas Territory.
Limassol is famous in Cyprus for its festivals, like the Carnival and Wine Festival. The Limassol Carnival festival lasts for ten (10) days, with jolly and amusing masquerading. The festival starts with the entrance parade of the King Carnival, followed by a fancy-dress competition for children. During the Carnival parade in the main streets, large crowds from all over the island gather to watch the floats with the serenade and other masqueraded groups. Many fancy-dress balls and parties take place at many hotels every night.
During the first quarter of September, the great Wine Festival of Cyprus takes place in the Limassol Municipal Garden, every evening between 8.00 hrs – 23.00 hrs. During the festival the visitor has the chance to taste some of the best Cyprus wines, which are offered free of charge. On some evenings, various groups from Cyprus and abroad perform folk dancing and there are also choirs and others.

Καθυστερημένο προφανώς σε επηρέασε η προπαγάνδα των Καλαμαράδων που λένε ότι όλα τους ανήκουν . Ο εθνικός μας ύμνος στην Κύπρο αναφέρει των Ελλήνων τα Ιερά , η έκφραση απευθύνεται σε εμάς , η ελληνική σημαία είναι η σημαάι του έθνους μας για αυτό είναι σε όλα τα κρατικά κτήρια . Η λέξη Κύπριος δηλώνει το νησί σου , Κύπριος είναι και ο ποντικός του αγρού αφού από εδώ κατάγεται , δεν κάναμε άλλο έθνος για να είμαστε άλλο . Κυριολεκτικά η σημαία μας είναι ο χάρτης της Κύπρου δε δείχνει κάποια εθνικότητα . Η εθνικότητα σου είναι Έλληνας και ας γαμιούνται οι Καλαμαράδες . Τέλος .

@aVerySmartToast: Γαμας τον Χριστο μας; Ρε χασου απο εδω αχρηστε που βριζεις τον Θεο και νομιζεις οτι καποιος εισε. Εισε ενα μηδεν που τρως και χεζεις ενω στην πραγματικοτητα εισε ενας ψυχοπνευματικα νεκρος. Παρολο που η υπολοιπη προταση σου ειναι σωστη, παλι χαμενος εισε.
