Резюме:

Troodos is the largest mountain system on the island of Cyprus, located in the western part, with the highest peak Olympia or Olympus (1952 m). Troodos is recognized as an international reserve, and it is very different from other similar mountain ranges in the world. For vulcanologists, Mount Olympus’s top is the storage of knowledge about species and soil formation, 90 million years ago. The mountain itself appears in the prehistoric age, in the collision of the continental plates. Today, Troodos Mountain has become a developed tourist infrastructure with different resorts not only for summer recreation, but also for skiing, as well as for pilgrimage, cognitive and cultural tourism. The economy of the region is mainly based on agriculture (grape growing and wine production) and tourism. The area is famous for its mountain resorts and picturesque mountain villages, revealing traditions and rich historical heritage preserved in the well-preserved Byzantine churches and monasteries, ancient ruins and fortress walls. According to data for 2016, the Cypriot economy has reported record levels of revenue from tourism.
