Nicosia is the last divided capital of the world, and if you want to immerse yourself in the splendour of the "real" Cyprus, there are plenty of fascinating things to do, just remember your passport. Wash yourself in a sea of red, white, blue, yellow, green and blue water and do some fascinating things, but be aware that it also houses one of the most dangerous and dangerous islands in Europe.
Visiting Nicosia is an easy and fascinating day trip, the bus stop is right outside the city walls, while you can also visit the village of Lefkara, which is a little further away, but visiting the village will be much easier. If you are in the Republic of Cyprus and have to cross the border, you must be able to get through the "real" city walls and stay in one of the many hotels, hotels and restaurants on the island, such as the airport.

A good starting point is the Cyprus Museum, which tells the rich history of Cyprus through archaeology and preserves artefacts from prehistoric times. Although it is not based on ruins as in many places in Southern Cyprus, the museum is one of the best - recognized archaeological museums in the world. It contains a collection of over 1,000 archaeological objects from across the country, and a separate annex includes the famous Kanakaria mosaics, which were stolen from the Panagia Kanaksaria church in Northern Cyprus in the late 1970s.
The extensive exhibitions at the Leventis Museum are also well thought out and take you on a journey through the history of Nicosia and Cyprus. Like the other major museums, they take us on a tour of the complex and fascinating history of Cyprus and are well thought out. This historic attraction for religious prayers in the region is a stunning blend of the history of Cyprus and Nicosia. Visit the Cyprus Museum, one of the largest and most popular museums in Europe, to get an overview of Cypriot history. It also takes you through all the journeys and the history of Nicosia in its extensive exhibits and exhibitions.
It is located on an island at the intersection of three continents and is the capital of the Republic of Cyprus, which is itself an internationally recognised country. This city was the last divided capital of the world; the northern side was the capital of the self-proclaimed Republic of Northern Cyprus and the southern part is the capital of the Republic of Cyprus.
Although the south is internationally recognised, only Turkey recognises the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, while the north is recognised only by Turkey. Although it is an internationally recognised southern and northern part of the island, it has never been officially recognised by the United Nations or any other country.
Turkey recognises the TRNC only as an independent country and is therefore officially considered part of the Republic of Cyprus.
The EU does not recognise Northern Cyprus as a state, but considers the entire island of Cyprus to be part of the EU. The UN buffer zone, the Green Line, separates the North and South Islands, and the UN buffer zone, the Green Line, separates them. After being kept separate for more than three decades, this line eventually divided the island and its city of Nicosia into two. The Turkish occupation from 1570 to 1878, remained the capital of Cyprus, but it experienced a great decline and became a small town surrounded by high walls.
In the 1960s, it underwent a major development, becoming the capital of the island, with the construction of a new airport, Nicosia International Airport and an international airport in 1974.
After independence, the Greek Cypriots, who wanted Cyprus to be united with Greece, continued their fight against the Turks. In 1974, the Turkish military occupied the northern part of the island, and Greeks and Turks in Cyprus never seem to get along. In 1983, Turkey invaded Cyprus and conquered what is now the territory of Northern Cyprus. Some 200,000 Cypriots (Greek and Turkish) have been displaced, as have hundreds of thousands of Greeks, Turks and other ethnic minorities.
The northern part of the city has been under Turkish occupation since 1974, making Nicosia the only divided capital in the world.
It is not known whether half of the capital belongs to the Republic of Cyprus or the other half to a self-proclaimed Turkish Republic (Northern Cyprus). The Turkish army came to Cyprus in 1974, after the northern part of the island was liberated from the Greek-controlled southern part. The southern part, Cyprus, is recognised as the 'Republic of Cyprus', while the northern part has declared itself a state recognised only by Turkey. The catholic cathedral was rebuilt after the Ottomans had elevated the island of Nicosia to the status of the most important mosque in Cyprus.
