Fascinating history. I’ve wanted to visit there for a while.
I just spent 4 days in Nicosia and crossed to the north 3 times to do the touristic sites in the north.
It certainly seems like the north is Turkish for sure but not as conservative as being actually in Turkey.
I saw very few women wearing head coverings for example .
Cyprus is very interesting - worth a visit and I really like the northern part of the island . Currently I am in the very touristy south as my main interest on the island is archaeological and historical sites
