Possibilities and necessities of Polish tourism development in Cyprus, based on the history of trips and lives of Poles on the island. Tourist route projects
Languages of publication
With the background of history and the current situation of Cyprus, the authors outline Polish-Cyprus relations over centuries, and they show present-day tourist attractiveness of the island. From the Middle Ages to the 19th century, Cyprus was only a stopover place for pilgrims going to the Holly Land. However, the number of Polish pilgrims and emigrants over the centuries was so impressive that today’s visit to the island can take the form of a tour of places connected with trips and current lives of fellow-Poles. The text attempts to expand the existing definition of Polish diaspora tourism as one of the subtypes of ethnic tourism. The article closes with a proposal of seven tourist routes and draft itineraries of excursions in the footsteps of Poles on Cyprus.
