Holidays & Observances in Cyprus

Cyprus is an island country located in the Mediterranean. It is between Europe, Africa, and Asia, and its culture has been affected by all of them. Today Cyprus is culturally divided between the large Greek community in the south and the smaller Turkish community in the north. The Turkish population generally practices Islam while the Greek population is almost exclusively Greek Orthodox. Many of the official holidays in Cyprus are Greek and Greek Orthodox in nature, though Turkish and Islamic holidays are celebrated in the north.
