Welcome to the future flagship forum of Cyprus. The main difference of our forum from all others is that all user posts and news from the Cypriot media are automatically translated into three languages: Greek, English and Russian. The translation is done with the help of an innovative neuronet, so we expect a quality result.
The main mission of the forum is to unite all the international communities of Cyprus, erasing all linguistic boundaries between them. Currently we are inviting all interested people to develop the sections of the forum.
We look forward to welcoming you as a new user!
Welcome and feel comfortable here!
