Cyprus May Disappear from the World Map in One Century

By in

According to the research conducted by the University of Celtic, Paphos may disappear completely from the world map over the next century. Primarily, this is due to the sea level rising caused by the global warming.

The flooding of Paphos will be a great loss for Cyprus as in 1980 the city was listed as a cultural object by UNESCO. In addition, there are a large number of valuable monuments such as Kato Paphos, the shrines of Aphrodite, the village of Kouklia and others.

It is worth noting that along with Paphos the medieval islands of Rhodes and Corfu, Venice and the cultural center of Pisa, the medina in Tunisia, Dubrovnik, Byblos and several other important world heritage sites may completely disappear from the face of the earth.
