"Kiti is a small, tranquil town located in the Larnaca District of Cyprus, known for its rich history and beautiful landscapes. The official languages in Kiti are Greek and Turkish, but English is widely spoken due to the high number of British expats and tourists. The cost of living in Kiti is relatively low compared to other European countries, making it an attractive destination for expats. The town has a warm Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Kiti is home to several historical sites, including the Angeloktisti Church, a Byzantine church famous for its well-preserved mosaics. The healthcare system in Cyprus is of a high standard, with both public and private healthcare options available. Public transportation in Kiti is limited, so having a car can be beneficial for getting around. The town has a relaxed pace of life, which can be a significant change for those used to living in bustling cities. Kiti is close to Larnaca, the third-largest city in Cyprus, providing easy access to more extensive shopping, dining, and entertainment options. The education system in Cyprus is of a high standard, with a mix of public and private schools, many of which offer English-language instruction. Cyprus is part of the European Union, so EU citizens can live and work in Kiti without a visa. The Cypriot cuisine is a blend of Greek, Turkish, and Middle Eastern influences, with a focus on fresh, local ingredients. The crime rate in Kiti, like much of Cyprus, is relatively low, making it a safe place to live. The property market in Kiti offers a range of options, from traditional village houses to modern apartments, often at prices lower than in other European countries. It's important to note that Cyprus has a different electrical system than many other countries, with a voltage of 240V and a frequency of 50Hz. Finally, Cypriots are known for their hospitality and friendliness, so newcomers to Kiti can expect a warm welcome," remarked one expat living in Kiti, Cyprus.
