You are ok to take photos almost anywhere in Cyprus.But you are not allowed to take pics near Attila and Green Lines and there are warning signs around to tell you not to do so.Another place to avoid are Military camps.Also such places as ports or airports are off limits taking pics.If you want to take pics in a museum, you normally need a licence to do so.Do not use a flash in churches and some churches may not allow and pics to be taken.Look for the sign of a camera with a line going through it.And whatever you do, dont ever take a pic inside a Mosque when people are praying in there.
If you want to take pictures of Cypriot people it is good manners to at least smile and say"kalimera" or "merhaba".People such as priests and old ladies on donkies etc make great pics and will be ok if you ask them first and say you will send them a copy of the pic when you get it developed.Remember to get their address and post them their copy as you promised.It's all about manners and being polite.Smile and ask nicely.
