As is detailed on most Cyprus maps, you will see the area to the North and East of the ‘United Nations Buffer Zone’ line is occupied by Turkey since the 1974 Turkish invasion. The Greek speaking Republic of Cyprus is the area shown on the southern side of the UN buffer.
Also shown are the UK Sovereign Base Areas (SBA’s) of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, and the six main districts of Cyprus being Limassol, Larnaca, Nicosia, Paphos, Famagusta, and the Kyrenia district.
The major cities and villages of both the Republic of Cyprus and Northern Cyprus are shown on the map.

Districts of Cyprus Map
This map shows you Cyprus’ relative position in the world as an island in the Mediterranean.
While being a large island of over 1 million inhabitants (3,572 square miles, there are two other islands in the Mediterranean that are larger: Crete and Sardinia.
Cyprus is the 81st largest island in the world.
As of August 2022, there is a limited Street View of Cyprus.
I have noticed there are a few streets in Nicosia and a few small towns in Northern Cyprus that have it available.
If you need a old-school fold out map of the whole island, there are quite a few to choose from online.
One that looks like it has good reviews and is by a trusted source is this National Geographic travel atlas. It is waterproof, tear resistant and folds up to a small size. Pretty handy as a road map.
I scanned this antique Cyprus map from an 1899 Atlas which was during the period of time when the island was a United Kingdom Protectorate.
I couldn’t fit the whole of Famagusta in the scanner, unfortunately.
It is interesting that Paphos is called Papho here.
