Most Russians are used to seeing the island of Cyprus as a good place to rest, and yet it is not just a resort, but also a suitable place to get a good education.

But we will focus on the advantages of pre-university, school education, as Cyprus is one of the most suitable places to get it.

There are many English schools in Cyprus – Foley’s school, Grammar school, etc. There are also preparatory training programs, which accept children from the age of one and a half years, so almost from birth children are immersed in an English environment. The cost of education at such schools is considerably lower than European analogues and starts from a little over 1000 euros a year, depending on the age of the child. In addition to English, there are 3 Russian schools in Cyprus – 2 in Limassol and 1 in Paphos. Also, children are also accepted in public Greek schools.

All British and American schools in Cyprus allow you to continue studying in any English-speaking country.

The acquisition of Cypriot real estate also gives obvious and very tangible benefits. In particular, the owner of a Cyprus property gets a residence permit, which greatly simplifies the procedure for entering / leaving the country, and in the future, after Cyprus joins the Schengen area, it will also allow to easily travel throughout the European Union.

Here, an apartment in the elite complex with 2-3 bedrooms will cost 500 – 750 thousand euros, the starting price of a villa with a pool and round the clock security – 800-900 thousand euros.

Zavalishina. – A small apartment in the city costs 190-230 thousand euros, depending on the area. Pretty villa with sea views, private pool and within walking distance of the beach can offer at a price of 470 thousand euros.
