In the Turkish-speaking North of Cyprus, you can visit a mosque by taking off your shoes (women, they give you a headscarf) and walking in, except during prayer hours. In the Greek-speaking South of the island, you can walk into an Orthodox church, and it's expected that people will walk in any time during a service. You'll see whole families come in an hour after a service starts, kiss an icon right in front of the singing priest at the front of the church, and then walk out and leave again. Don't worry about walking in and walking out in the South, but don't interrupt a service in the North!
