Mistress says - For pictures of the Paphos area , see the photos at www.cyprus-holidays.com/cyprus_picture_gallery.htm for info see Paphos
I am a university student from Hertfordshire in England and I will be visiting Pathos soon to carry out a research project on the effect on architecture of the various civilisations that have, over the past, colonised the island, such as the Ottoman empire, Byzantine, English etc. I am wondering if anyone could provide me with any relevant data for Pathos. I would be very grateful if people could contact me if they know of any regions which characterise these civilisations in the Pathos region. My email is: platinumdukeAThotmail.com
Just a quick note to say that your first job will be to name the place correctly, Pafos or Paphos will do, but Pathos (a VERY common mistake) is actually defined thus in Wikipedia;
'Pathos is often associated with emotions, but it is more complex than simply emotions. A better equivalent might be appeal to the audience's sympathies and imagination. An appeal to pathos causes an audience not just to respond emotionally but to identify with the writer's point of view - to feel what the writer feels. In this sense, pathos evokes a meaning implicit in the verb 'to suffer' - to feel pain imaginatively. Perhaps the most common way of conveying a pathetic appeal is through narrative or story, which can turn the abstractions of logic into something palpable and present. The values, beliefs, and understandings of the writer are implicit in the story and conveyed imaginatively to the reader. Pathos thus refers to both the emotional and the imaginative impact of the message on an audience, the power with which the writer's message moves the audience to decision or action.'
I am British guy thoroughly taken with Cyprus and all the history surrounding it. I study the history as a personal thing and am following the progress of entry to the EU. As a side issue, I am a musician and will be travelling to Limassol for the St.Patricks celebrations
We are geting married in Paphos in July and we are taking a laptop to send emails. We have not travelled to Cyprus before and are the phone connections the same as UK. Please do we have to supply proffe that we are both devorced but free to marry.
In the event of a united Cyprus, how do you think both sides, Greek and Turks will get on? Given the years of propergander by both sides. Me Selwyn Jones High School, UK
Mistress' comments : We are optimistic that the kids of both sides will put aside what they have been taught, and understand that it was all part of the game. (By the way - a proper gander - would be a real male goose - I presume you mean propaganda - although a real male goose may be a better way of explaining that particular concept (:o))
Hi, I am 10 years old and in the fifth grade form Sydney, Australia. My grandparents are from Cyprus.I have been asked to do a project on 5 celebrations of Cyprus of about one page each. I have had difficulties in finding information. Please help with useful websites. Regards H.T PS I love Cyprus!
Mistress' comments : Well, the most important celebration in Cyprus is Easter, followed by the New Year possibly, then we have name days, which are the names of the saints, Green Monday, or clean Monday, which is the start of lent, Greek Independence Day on the 25th March and Cyprus Independence Day on the 1st October. That should give you something to work on - to see more have a look at http://www.windowoncyprus.com/public_holidays.htm
im looking for when this country was founded, the 3 larges cities and the population, and an important land mark and why its important.im from avonlake ohio
Mistress' comments : Well, the first time it was 'founded' was about 7000 years ago, according to current evidence, however you possibly mean when it last gained independence, that was only about 50 years ago on the 15th December 1959 - it is however celebrated on the 1st of October. The three largest cities are the capital, Nicosia, Limassol and probably Larnaca or Paphos. I would say Larnaca, but cannot be sure as they have both grown considerably in the last few years. For an important landmark, check out the town sections in this site and pick one.
i don't think this page is good. it should have list of projects for a student to do that are at a easy level
Mistress' comments : The idea was not that we do the work for you, it was that you could put down what you need to know and we would try to make it easier for you to find throughout the site in the relevant places. If we do it for you how do you learn?
I want information about sports and I cant find eny can you give me information like pictures and stuff
pretty good stuff, but it didnt hav anything bout the religions!
Mistress' comments : Good point. Well the Greek Cypriots are Greek Orthodox Christian. The Latins are mainly Catholic, the Turkish Cypriots are mostly Muslim, Maronites tend to be Maronite, the British are mostly Anglican, the rest are split between Jehovah's witnesses and bush baptist. Then there are the ones who are not religious at all.
Dear friends! thanks for your work- the most stylish site i have ever seen... Your country ... been there 3 times last year..... nothing compares to it.... Best wishes... Natie.

I moved here (cyprus) on march 15th 2004 with my husband who is in the army and trutherly ive been home twice already its just to hot for me, very expensive no transport apart from taxis which dont come cheap, i want to start my driving lessons but because its so expensive we can never afford it, so it would be a much better place if they made more pathways and had more transport like buses, yes they have a couple of buses but u could be waiting for hours. to come here as a holiday is great friendly people and pataras is beautiful especially fig tree bay, also if u drive and smoke then move here u will benefit from it then. vicki xx

Hello, I'm looking for information on how to book a motorcycle test in Cyprus. I know it can be done when you are in Cyprus as I knew a few guys in the RAF who did it when we were on detachment. I'm looking to take my sister and brother-in-law to Cyprus (can't believe they've never been!!) so he can pass his test. If you have any info can you please mail me felixATvipnet.co.uk Thanks
Hi, i visited north cyprus with my family last year and this year we have decided to see what the south has to offer, however i am slightly worried. I have heard rumours that as we have stamps in our passport from the north they will not let us into the south. Is this true or is this just a rumour after all! Thanks a lot
Mistress' comments : If you ask, they will stamp a piece of paper instead of your passport, that is if you go across from this side to the other. If you fly into the North and then try to cross I do not know the situation, except that most people do it the other way round, which leads me to believe it is a problem.

This is Daniel Cassar from Malta. I attend De La Salle College, and am doing an assignment on Cyprus and need to have information about Cyprus's natural features and a pictures and also about your country's typical dress or national costume and a picture too. Is it possible to send me the relative information and pictures to me
Thank you so much.
Mistress' comments : Here is
a national dress of Cyprus photograph for you. Note that the man is wearing what
looks like trousers, however they are in fact a long piece of material worn in a
way that makes them look like trousers called vrachas (pronounced vrachkas).
Hello, I am a student from St. Rose of Lima CAtholic School and I am doing a Report on Cyprus.
Please put the important fruits and crops help!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, the most famous Cyprus crop is the potato. Cyprus potatoes are prized the world over. They grow mainly in the agricultural area near Ayia Napa, Paralimni and Larnaca where the red soil is perfect.
Then there is citrus friut. Cyprus grows wonderful oranges, lemons and grapefruit. Actualy Cyprus seems to be able to grow anything it puts its mind to. Bananas are a recent point in question. They were planted in the Paphos area about 10 - 15 years ago and now you would think they have always been there.
Then there are grapes, olives, carob, almonds, apples, cheries, alfa
alfa, and a variety of vegetables and fruit to keep your mothwatering
all year. See Cypriot food for some pics
of vegetables and some local food explanations
Money. Cyprus Pounds are no longer. Cyprus now uses euros.
Since January 1st 2008 in fact, so we thank you for pointing that
out. See the Banking page

Hi, I'm from Australia and doing my year 7 project on Cyprus.
Good question. After quite a bit of pondering we have decided it is a toss up between football and hunting.
Hi, I'm doing a commonwealth countries project and one of my
countries is Cyprus. [even though it's independent]
hello, i'm a student from Malaysia. i'm doing a research on Cyprus's climates, musical instruments and traditional clothes. this research that i've been doing is for my subject presentation where my group going to make an exhibition base on your country. i need the information...please.
Hi, this can all be found by reading the site - see Weather here - the national dress of Cyprus is shown above and the bouzouki and violin are both used extensively in local music.
Hi, As part of their project for their world badge, I'm trying to
find a traditional game from Cyprus that my Brownie pack can learn and
play as a group or groups (24 girls). I can only find marbles and
throwing a long/short stick. Can you suggest a more suitable one - with
instructions and word translation - if it has a rhyme or words?
Dear Brown Owl - The best I can currently suggest is Tavli - played in all the coffee shops, otherwise known as backgammon. There are however 2 forms of the game popular in Cyprus, (there are many variants the world over) the ' ladies game' and the men's game'. The ladies version is the traditional game found in most game shops. The men's version begins with all the pieces off the board, a and instead of blocking your opponent by throwing them back to the beginning, this version sees you trap single pieces on the board until you need to move off them. You will find all of the various games on the net. another possibility would be the card game Bastra.
Good luck and happy playing.
My name is Lily, I am 8 years old. I am from Liverpool, England. I
am currently doing a project in school on Cyprus and it's plant life.
Any information would be a huge help. I love Cyprus. Me and my family
are due to visit again in August.
