Travel guide to Nicosia
House of Nicosia
House of Nicosia
Nicosia now remains the only capital city this is divided. Following the intercommunal violence of the 1960s between the Turkish and Greek Cypriots and a coup to reunite the island lead to Turkey invading the island in 1974 which resulted in the capital city and island being divided. You can be walking down a street only to find a huge wall in front of you, which ensured you don’t just wonder across. A bit of a reprieve has occurred, as in 2008, a symbolic wall dividing the two communities at Ledra Street was opened, and there is now a border crossing. Life seems so different on either side of this border. But it is well worth visiting both sides to appreciate the differences but to wish for unifications. [edit text]  [editors]
