Cyprus is a republic, independent since 1960 (independent from the UK, by the way, not from Greece). It's not part of Greece and never has been, except for various invasions before the time of Christ, including by Alexander the Great (if you count him as Greek). Cypriot nationals have Cypriot passports.
Sorry, mea culpa. I meant "Cypriot" of course but in my mind they're Greek too.

TBH I have never fancied visiting Cyprus, because of its history and divisions.
Have you ever read any book ba Victoria Hislop? If not, do read The Sunrise - if you want to understand Cyprus's divisions in a Novel form.
Why? It seems like a very nice place, I hope I'll visit it someday. I think history makes it even more interesting. Wish they'll find a way to be less divided so to speak.
