[CY] Cyprus | road infrastructure

Since there's no thread for Cyprus, let me open one and show some photos from there. Mods could add the name in Greek and Turkish in the name of the thread.

In Larnaka




A2 and A1 Larnaka - Lefkosia

As you can see from the signs and the flags, they are Hellenes and they speak Hellenic.

They also speak Turkish there, one of the officials languages, which seems to be missing completely from these signs.

Isn't the border between Greek and Turkish Cyprus closed anyway?

And I'm definatly not a fan of trilingual signs, bilingual is bad enough as it is.

True, but the vast majority of Turkish Cypriots decide to live separately (see the occupied part of Cyprus) so don't wave your head.

Yes, it's black and white, they "decided to live there." Also, stop forcing the whole "Hellenic" thing down people's throats, in English it's Cypriot Greek and that's all there is to it.

First of all what is your problem?

Second, is it me or it isn't the first time you are trying to bad-criticize my country or anything related with my country?

Third,

The official name of the country is Republic of Cyprus and her citizens are called Cypriots. The off-topic discussion ends here.

If you have further questions go to the Cypriot Forum in the Hellenic Architecture Agora.

I have visited Cyprus in 2001. I have made only 4 pictures of roadsigns then. (the border between the Greek and Turkish part was still closed then, there was only one possilibilty to visit the Northen part of Nicosia, but I didn't do that.
