In the island we'got the sovereign Republic of Cyprus and the illegally Occupied areas in the north

I've just been on holiday there! Best spot was the Blue Lagoon near Ayia Napa. Although all the other beaches there were rammed with tourists. I stayed in Limassol which was very nice.

And the trouble goes on, we are Cypriots speaking Greek or Turkish. Speaking about Greek part and Turkish part didn´t and doesn´t do any good. We adopted greek language and culture, that doesn´t make us Greeks. We even don´t have enough Greek gens. But Cypriot, see the research and detecting of Cypriot Gen and Levantas gen. My family 97% Cypriot and 3% Levantas.

Great video, up until 9:52, which does not do justice to current political situation. The Republic of Cyprus is de jure sovereign over the whole island. Although it does not exercise de facto control over the northern part, it is the only government on the island legally recognized by the United Nations. The TRNC "state" in the north is a Turkish invention and functions as a protectorate. It is only recognized by Turkey, which maintains the only "embassy" on TRNC territory. Even countries closely tied to Turkey, like Azerbaijan or Pakistan, have yet to initiate official diplomatic relations with TRNC.

Indeed, the first and most significant civilization that developed on the island was the Minoan (Hellenic) civilization, which completely Hellenized the island around 1,500 BC. maintaining its Greek character to this day...! (despite the tribes that conquered the island, Cyprus never lost its Greek culture...)
Also in 1950 with the beginning of the revolution of the inhabitants against the British occupation, the main request was to unite the island with the main Greece... (and not just the liberation...).
Unfortunately, after 1974 and until today, 1/3 of the island is under Turkish illegal occupation, which has been condemned by the UN and all international organizations...

How come in the video the north part is called the 'Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus'? It is illegally occupied and so should not be known as what it was named in the video. It is not recognised by other EU nations for the reason that it is taken illegally. I would recommend that as an edit to this otherwise very informative video 👍

You did forget to say that the Turks invaded a completely foreign territory, Cyprus, and that they installed on the Turkish part Turkish residents. They killed and threw out of their homes the people who lived there and just brought in Turkish families to live in other people's homes. The Cypriots have come to terms with this, and they are now aiming at having good and peaceful relations and unity. Yet, Turkey is acting in a provocative way towards Greece and has even published a map that portrays half of the Aegean as being Turkish.

I am Cypriot. its a little bit sad learning your own history from a YouTube video.
But the saddest thing is that our system teach us, from a young age, false history.

Η Νεφερτίτη ήτανε από Κύπρο!!!...στα αρχαία Αιγυπτιακά Νεφερτίτη σημαίνει "Ο ΕΡΧΟΜΟΣ ΤΗΣ ΟΜΟΡΦΗΣ".....Σχετικά με το σημείο που αναφέρει για την απέλαση των Εβραίων από Κύπρο η ιστορία μας λέει ότι κατά την κυριαρχία των Ρωμαίων στην Κύπρο οι Εβραίοι ξεσηκώθηκαν μια νύχτα και έσφαζαν Έλληνες!!!το επόμενο πρωί όταν ο εκατόνταρχος είδε το αίμα ποτάμι απέλασε όλους τους Εβραίους από Κύπρο....μόνο δύο χωριά έμειναν με Εβραίους...η Λύση και κάποιο άλλο ορεινό χωριό

As a Turkish Cypriot living in London I would suggest trying şeftali kebab and eating at one of the many patisseries on the island. Our cuisine is very rich and diverse. All Cypriots love their food 😋.

I love Cyprus, And realy enjoyed the video. although A little suprised no mention of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Cyprus being the birthplace (Petra tou Romiou) A beautiful coastline. was it left out because Greek Mythology is just a fairly tale and fake ?

Lived in Cyprus as a child when my Father was stationed there, first in Dekhalia, then after my little Brother was born we moved to a camp near Pergamos. Often visit the Island for a couple of weeks a year, always felt like a home to me. I like all the food, however I always recommend that people try Afelia if it's available. Oh and I am also a big fan of Koupes.

I’m half Irish and grew up here but my mum is Cypriot and my grandad raised me on what would be considered the ‘poor food’ from his childhood when people couldn’t afford meat. I recommend trying things like fasolia, gigantes, fages and revithkia, they’re all bean based dishes either with lemon and olive oil or a rich tomato based sauce. They’re all vegan and very nutritious, and deliciously seasoned so you don’t feel like you’re missing out on meat. Mainly though they just humble me and remind me of how little my Bapou grew up with and how he learned to survive, and remind me of sitting eating them with him -some of my happiest memories <3

There is no such a thing as "turkish republic of northern cyprus" .Turks invaded Cyprus and by killing and war managed to get the half of it .The only country that accepts that side as a country is turkey . European union does not accept republic of northern cyprus as a country .Cyprus is GREEK. After 1959 a referendum had showed 95 % of people in Cyprus wanted Cyprus ti be united with Greece .
