Languages


Greek and Turkish are the main languages spoken by the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities respectively. As provided in the Constitution of 1960, the official languages of the Republic of Cyprus are Greek and Turkish. English is widely spoken. French and German are also well spoken within the tourist industry.

 

Religions


Cyprus enjoys an exceedingly high level of freedom of worship. While the majority of Greek-Cypriots are Greek-Orthodox Christians, other denominations are represented on the island, including Armenians, Maronites and Roman Catholics. The Turkish-Cypriot community is predominantly Muslim.
