If you look on a map you'll see that the closest country is Turkey,
followed by Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Greece.

As for "European": the English language Wikipedia describes it as
"Eurasian" which begs the question.  The Dutch language Wikipedia says
that "Geographically it is part of Asia but for political and cultural
reasons it is often considered part of Europe".

It might be best to add a link under Europe so Cyprus is shown there too
(i.e., both under Asia and under Europe).
