The island of Cyprus sits in the Mediterranean Sea, south of Turkey and west of Syria. At their closest, Turkey is 75 km to the north and Syria is 105 km to the east.

Two large mountain ranges can be observed on the island: the Troodos Mountains and the Kyrenia Range. The former is wider and appears as a large, dark green area reaching diagonally across the west side of the island. The former is narrower and runs parallel to the northern shores of the island.
