Tseri (also known as Seri or Xeri) is a suburb in Cyprus to the south of the Cypriot capital, Nicosia. The region had a population about of 300 people before 1974. Its inhabitants are known as "Tseriotis" or "Tserkotis" for males and "Tseriotissa" or "Tserkotissa" for females. Following a referendum in 2011, Tseri has become a municipality.
