  • I know that it's predominantly inhabited by people of either Greek or Turkish ancestry, and that dudes from there seek foreign brides online as a way of getting a visa to be able to immigrate.

    • No one really want to immigrate from Cyprus anymore. It's pretty peaceful nowdays. Back in '74 many wanted ti immigrate tho...

    • Haha that's messed up xD...

  • I know only a few things without checking them out on the internet:

    1) It is an island nation in the Eastern Part of the Mediterranean Sea, in between Turkey and Egypt.
    2) It is home to both Greeks who have lived there for a long while, and Turks who started emigrating after WW1 or some time around that;
    3) And as a result, there is some kind of dispute going on there between the two.
    4) I may be wrong on this one but I heard the British or someone else owns a small patch of land there. But I dunno.

    • Cuz I'm half cypriot and I would like to know what the world or at least other people know about a little island that is not talked about very much :P

    • I've actually talked to Cypriots and I found them quite friendly.
      As for Cyprus, it was under Ottoman control for way too many years. The Ottoman forces massacred many Greeks and Armenians. It was also under control of the British Empire.
      Now it's independent. It is also considered one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean sea, so it's not little at all!

    • You know your fair share hahaha :P

  • Copper. The word for copper comes from the Greek kupros, which is the Greek word for the Cyprus. I'm assuming there is/was a whole load of copper there.

    • Just wondering how much people know of a small island that are not much spoken of...

  • The last divided nation in Europe, contested between the Turks and Greeks, great beaches, attractive women, great party scene! Oh and a relative of mine used to live in Nicosia back in the late 70's. Thats all!

    • He's Marcos Baghdatis. He's a good player. You have to take into account that not many players have actuallly won any of the 4 major tournaments. You don't have to be the very best to be considered good.

      And Marcos Baghdatis once reached the final of the Australian open. It was either 2006 or 2007 from memory. He lost to Roger Federer.
      Even so that's more success than most players who never make it past 3rd and fourth rounds

    • True that*
