About North Cyprus
North Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Nicosia, which is located almost in the center of the island, is the capital city and is also the largest city. Other important cities in North Cyprus are Famagusta and Kyrenia.
Residents of North Cyprus speak Cypriot Turkish which is one of the dialects of Istanbul Turkish. Of course, most people can speak English and have no problem communicating with tourists.
Cyprus gained independence from Britain in 1960. The independent government of Cyprus announced its existence based on the participation of Turkish and Greek communities in the management of the island’s affairs. Britain, Greece and Turkey have guaranteed the sovereignty of the Cypriot government. The Turkish Cypriot settlement declared independence in 1983 and renamed itself the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus.
The island’s strategic location and connection to many cultures and ethnic groups have led to the use of Cyprus as a mediator, even for major political purposes. As a result, diplomatically, Cyprus is a very important country in the Middle East.
