One of the greatest thing a human can achieve is the ability to look at the map and recognize places far away from home and call those places home. Memories worth more than any materialistic good you could ever buy.
In my travels I visited Larnaca, in Cyprus. Larnaca, or ancient Citium or the town of Zeno the great Greek Philosopher has history of 4000 years. I always find it fascinating to be able to see, touch and walk in places with great history that shaped humanity in a way. Larnaca or ancient Citium was home to Zeno the Greek philosopher known for his theories on Ethical laws and stoicism, and Cimon who was a statesman in the Greek military.
Apart from history and countless museums, Larnaca has good nightlife clear sea and most importantly good food.
Our first stop, was of course Saint Lazarus a trademark of the city. The church was built in the 9th century, and is absolutely massive, too bad pictures were not allowed inside the church.
Our next stop was to get some culture at the city of Citium, here you can see the ruins from the old city built in 400BC. Is pretty crazy how we can even see these ruins I thought with times everything gets destroyed.
After lots of walking we decided to grab lunch, Larnaca is a sea city so we had to have fish. A friend of mine recommended the "Ocean Basket" restaurant and god the food was amazing. We eaten way too much and drank even more.
After a heavy lunch we went for a stroll and more exploring. There is nothing more relaxing than walking by the sea.
I am such big kid, if that carousel was open I would definitely go for a ride (my friend would probably pretend that she doesnt know me haha)
Have you ever been to Larnaca?
