It would be interesting to hear your views and get your perspective on some of the subjects which come up in here. Forget the fish. You should stick around. :D :wink:

...kokinisto, pasticio, kleftiko; find someone with a mud oven.

better not to eat too much, there is always more to eat, when it come to eating, in Cyprus.

...you will find in some tavernes or nightclubs, that vodka can be sold by the bottle, but don't drink alone, buy three, the second one free.

Privet Tony and welcome to the forum.
As everyone else has said Cyprus is a very relaxed place to be and Cypriots do not generally like too many restrictions.

As one who has had the pleasure of knowing Belarusians at close hand, I think Im correct in saying that culture is almost the same as that of Russians , I came back today from Kiev where I spent 3 days and I also see the Ukrainians as very similar to Russians.

Prior to visiting for the first time Belarus, just over 6 years ago, I had misconceptions about the people soon though dispelled. I see a lot of similarities between the Russian people and Cypriot people. I have also learned the correct way of drinking ...Vodca. :lol:

Politeness is paramount in Cyprus ..for instance when you walk into a coffee shop you could wave and say "kalispera " goodnight is "kalinixta".. If you're walking by a young lady at the beach or coffee shop you could wave and say " ela katse pano na Eshosi ". It will really get her attention.. Good luck and enjoy your stay in Cyprus

Now THAT'S very typical of what one usually expects from the type of Cypriot who thinks it a great joke to teach the unwary a bit of filth when supposedly helping such visitors to the island.

Be cautious 'Makaroni' and YOU 'Oceanside50' should be ashamed of yourself. :roll:

You tell someone from Russia that second bottle of vodka is free?!?! I take the first flight to Cyprus and arrive as soon as possible! :D

Privet Miltiades, thank you!
It is very nice to read all responses, it looks like that is enough to just be a nice guy and do not bother anybody with misbehavior.
Yes we are quite similar with Belarus people except that we do not eat so many potatoes :D :D

One may not simply drink vodka like a Russian :shock: :lol:
