Cyprus

Cyprus is an island in the eastern Mediterranean that was divided into a Greek southern side and a Turkish northern side.

Cypriots are extremely respectful of hierarchy, which can be traced through back to their two main religions, Islam in Turkish Cyprus and Greek Orthodox in Greek Cyprus. People are respected because of their age and position. Older people are viewed as wise and are granted respect. Cyprus2

Of the estimated 736,000 population of the island, around 13% speak the official language Turkish, and 84% speak the official language Greek.
