Cyprus Culture Cypriots are very proud of their cultural heritage, which stretches back more than 9000 years. However, you'll probably find that Cyprus today is more concerned with the events of the last 20 years than those of a millennium ago. The north of the island is busy re-creating itself in the image of Turkey, changing names to Turkish and embracing the life and culture of its northern neighbour. The Republic is also trying to create an independent identity, and many places in the Republic have recently been renamed as well. Whatever the present-day situation may be, Cyprus is littered with reminders of the island's history. Relics from every era - Greek temples, Roman mosaics and 15th-century
frescoes- influence the artists of today. Many villages specialise in a particular artform, and as you travel around Cyprus you'll see pottery, silver and copperware, basket weaving, tapestry and Lefkara's famous lacework. Like everything else in Cyprus, religion is split along the Green Line. The northerners are mostly Sunni Muslim, the southerners Greek Orthodox. Food, too, reflects the divide: in the North you'll find mostly Turkish cuisine; in the Republic, Greek. But wherever you are in Cyprus, you'll come across kleftiko (oven-baked lamb) and mezedes (dips, salads and other appetisers). Cyprus is also famous for its fruit, which the government protects with a ban on imported products. You'll find strawberries, stone fruit, melons, prickly pear, citrus and grapes.

CULTURE The towns of Cyprus present a modern cosmopolitan atmosphere blended with historic buildings and ancient monuments. Imposing colonial and classic style buildings rub shoulders with well designed contemporary hotels, apartment blocks and attractive shopping streets some narrow and quaint and others that are thoroughly modern. By contrast life in the villages follows a much slower pace reflecting the importance of agriculture, cottage industry and family ties. Traditional flat roof village houses made of mud and brick are a common sight, while stone houses with tiled roofs can be seen in the mountainous areas. Many village houses have a traditional oven (fourno) for homemade baking and courtyards covered in vines. Language The main foreign language spoken is English along with Russian, German, and Dutch. The mother tongue is Greek with localised Cypriot dialect. There are many independent people and schools offering Greek lessons should you wish to learn the lingo! Religion Dress Code This is of particular importance if visiting the many beautiful churches or monasteries on the Island. You are respectfully asked to avoid wearing shorts and sleeveless garments.

Cyprus cultural heritage - 10,000 years of Cyprus history make it impossible to even begin to describe the Cypriot culture. Ten millennia of history has left its mark allover the island of Cyprus, in the hundreds of archaeological sites scattered around Cyprus. To name but a few, the ancient amphitheaters of Curium outside of Limassol and of Paphos where even now, during the summer months, concerts and plays still take place, the neolithic settlement of Hirokitia, the tens of Byzantine churches dotted around the island, the antiquities of Paphos, the sanctuary of Aphrodite ...

    We thought it would be interesting to write some of the traditions and customs that one may come across amongst the Cypriot people. Some of these are traditional only to Cyprus, but the majority stem from Greek culture, and have been adopted and sometimes adapted over the years by Cypriots. Welcome One of the first aspects of the Cyprus culture experienced by foreigners to Cyprus is the warm welcome. Cypriots are known worldwide for the genuine and sincere hospitality and friendliness. The words 'Kalosorisate' (Welcome!) and 'Kopiaste' (Come join us!) are frequently called to locals and foreigners alike. Plate smashing Worry Beads The kompoloi, or string of beads, is a familiar sight in the hands of many Greek and Cypriot men. It became a popular form of plaything amongst men in Greece and many of the Greek islands. The word komboloi incorporates the word kombos, meaning the knot. The fascination and magic derived from these knots running through ones fingers may well have come from the thoughts conjured up from playing with the string of beads, which are always made with an uneven number of beads. The kompoloi is said to be more than just a means of passing time, it reflects a way of life. They are certainly relaxing, with the sound of the beads clocking together combined with the feel of the smooth beads between once fingers. The beads can be bought in many weights, sizes, colours, and materials and can make a nice cost effective gift, or a very expensive one.

Cyprus Culture The Republic of Cyprus gained its independence in 1960, prior to which it was a British colony. At that time, 60% of its population lives in villages. The remaining 40% were spread across the five urban centers of Nicosia, Famagusta, Paphos, Limassol, and Larnaca. This ratio changed after the island was divided in 1974 following the inter-communal conflicts among the Greek and Turkish population residing in Cyprus. After that (since 1980) only half the population lives in rural areas with more than 51% preferring to live in the urban areas. Since the Turkish part of the population (about 12%) is so small an amount of the total population, the Turkish Cypriot urban centers are not as densely populated as the Greek Cypriot regions. After the ceasefire in 1974, thousands of Turkish Cypriots moved from their original residences across the buffer zone occupied by the United Nations forces for the sake of keeping peace. Though most of these moved on their own, the rest needed international agreements and diplomatic initiatives before they could join their ethnic groups. Many Turkish Cypriots also had to take refuge in the British controlled bases. This is an important aspect because while most Turkish Cypriots sought to go over to the Turkish side of Cyprus, it should be noted that Greek Cypriots living in Turkish controlled areas did not move back and instead they continued to live in the Karpas Peninsula.

The Establishment of the Foundation
The Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation was established in 1984, a decade after the Turkish invasion and the ongoing occupation of the northern part of the island. The Foundation was born out of the Bank’s growing concern to assist in the rescue of the island’s cultural heritage, which has been pillaged or stolen by the Turkish forces from the occupied areas, and to promote the Hellenic culture of Cyprus at a professional and scholarly level. Thus, while the context of all projects undertaken by the Foundation is meant to be Cyprological , i.e. pertaining to Cyprus (art, history, literature, etc.), the philosophy and policy of the Foundation is to promote the Hellenic character of Cyprus, in as much as this is an island of the wider Hellenic world. This assessment does not by any means detract from the unique, historical development of Cyprus from antiquity to the present. In February 2000 the Greek authorities granted permission for a branch of the Cultural Foundation to be opened in Greece. The branch will have its temporary premises at the administrative headquarters of the Bank of Cyprus in Athens. The object of the establishment of the branch is to strengthen cooperation between the Cultural Foundation and foundations in Greece and to contribute on a nation wide level, with regard to cultural issues concerning the Hellenic world as a whole.

Identification. Cyprus is an island in the eastern Mediterranean that was divided into a Greek southern side and a Turkish northern side after a coup instigated by the dictatorship ruling Greece in 1974 and a subsequent Turkish military offensive. Interethnic violence had earlier caused the partial separation of the two communities. With a Greek majority of around 77 percent of the population at the time of independence in 1960, many people regard Cyprus as part of the wider Greek culture. Although the island became part of the Byzantine Empire in the fourth century, it was part of the Ottoman Empire from 1571 to 1878 and had an 18.3 percent Turkish minority in 1960. Greek Cypriots are Christian Orthodox, while Turkish Cypriots are Sunni Muslim. Location and Geography.
