They are a recognized minority with their own language, schools and churches. Despite the relatively small number of Armenians living in Cyprus, the Armenian-Cypriot community has had a significant impact upon the Armenian diaspora and Armenian people. During the Middle Ages , Cyprus had an extensive connection with the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia , while the Ganchvor monastery had an important presence in Famagusta. Certain Armenian-Cypriots were or are very prominent on a Panarmenian or international level and the fact that, for nearly half a century, the survivors of the Armenian genocide have co-operated and co-existed peacefully with the Turkish-Cypriots is perhaps a unique phenomenon across the Armenian Diaspora. The emigration of a large number of Armenian-Cypriots to the United Kingdom has virtually shaped today's British-Armenian community. Currently, Armenians in Cyprus maintain a notable presence of about 3, on the island including about 1, non-Cypriot Armenians ,  mostly centred on the capital Nicosia , but also with communities in Larnaca , Limassol and Paphos.
