Cyprus is a European country on the one hand. There is democracy and order there. On the other hand the whole Cyprus life is wrapped around by the spirit of openness and lightness opposite to the heavy spirit of pedantry and life according to the rules. One of the reasons is surely small size of the country where people know one another. One can come to a bakery and, having forgotten to bring along money, ask to be allowed to take a loaf of bread and to bring the money later on. Cypriots are not xenophobes. In contrast to residents of many other countries Cypriots historically treat foreigners very well. Almost all the Cypriots speak English and at a high level at that. Cypriots gladly and willingly marry foreigners. See additional info on https://cyprus-alliance.com/.
