The capital of the island since the 10th century, surrounded by the historic Venetian walls and a city facing a tragic fate that bears the consequences of war, division and ethnic tensions. Nicosia is the last divided capital in Europe where you will see the crossroad of two culture unfold in one city.
Walking along the city’s paved roads you will experience the European influence on the island, seeing high-end boutiques shops and modern cafes up until you arrive at the infamous green line, a demilitarized zone where the wounds of war can be clearly seeing from the abandoned houses and businesses left in ruins. Further, lies the Turkish influence on the city and consequently the islands. In Nicosia, you will walk on the colorful alleys surrounded by Cypriot traditional architecture, experience the tragic modern history of the island but also you will be left in awe from the unique cultural buildings like the National Museum of Cyprus and the modern Leventions Gallery.
Nicosia will appeal to Cultural Travelers, Families and Shoppers but also Adventurers that want to explore and take advantage of the central position that the city has on the island.
