About the location

METU Northern Cyprus Campus.

North Cyprus is the Med's best kept secret: Loved for its slow pace of life, value for money and delightful village-feel, it combines beautiful bays and enchanting sights with a sunny climate all year round, making it an ideal get-away for every season. Located at the crossroads of three continents and just 40 miles from Turkey, North Cyprus is bursting with intriguing antiquity and a rich cultural history. The North Cyprus coastline is astonishingly beautiful with its ancient harbors where you can dine al-fresco and beaches that stretch for miles, whilst the depths of the crystal-clear azure seas offers many of the region's best dive sites. A labyrinth of craft shops, ancient sites and family-owned restaurants await exploration in North Cyprus' vibrant towns, whilst idyllic scenery and ancient rustic villages gently dot the countryside.
