If you prefer to think of Nicosia as being in Europe you can set 
TZ="Europe/Nicosia", which is equivalent to setting TZ="Asia/Nicosia". 
This is covered in the 'asia' file, which says:

# Classically, Cyprus belongs to Asia; e.g. see Herodotus, Histories, I.72.
# However, for various reasons many users expect to find it under Europe.
