Turkish cypriot dating

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia, and the largest island in the eastern Mediterranean.Mount Olympus (also known as Chionistra), the highest point of the Troodos Mountains (1,952 m; 6,404 ft), is the highest point on the island.Despite the inherent oppression of foreign subjugation, the period of Ottoman rule (1570-1878) had a limited impact on Greek Cypriot culture.

In addition, tax collection was also part of the heavy oppressive attitude of the occupiers to the locals of the island, in that it was now being conducted by the Latin churches themselves.There are today estimated to be 335,000 Greek Cypriot emigrants living in Great Britain.The majority of the Greek Cypriots in Great Britain currently live in England; there is an estimate of around 3,000 in Wales and 1,000 in Scotland.The island remains divided today, with the two communities almost completely separated.Many Greek Cypriots, most of whom lost their homes, lands and possessions during the Turkish invasion, emigrated mainly to the UK, USA, Australia, South Africa and Europe.The local Christians resumed practicing their religion in the only acceptable way they knew.
