Pets are no longer banned from public places in Cyprus

Great news for animal lovers, until recently all parks and many public areas in Cyprus posted signs banning animals (especially dogs), but now due to the European legislation this is no longer the case. Pet owners are allowed to take their pets to public areas and can now safely ignore any signs as long as they make sure they clean up after their pets (not doing so carries heavy fines under Cyprus Law). Pets are still not allowed at beaches and understandably a children play places. According to the source article the Municipality of Nicosia has already started replacing the signs and installing waste bins.
