Welcome to NICOSIA
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG
eurocityguide.com - eurocityguide.com


Information about NICOSIA Nicosia, is divided into the Turkish occupied North and the Greek south. The Greek part of Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus Republic and its largest city, which has a population of about 170.000. The atmosphere is modern and traditional, dynamic and calm at the same time. Its without any doubt the most interesting city on the island and very different from the tranquility of the rest of the islands towns and villages. Nicosia is the seat of government and home to all major business. Historically, Nicosia is divided into an old city within the ancient city walls and a new part. But nowadays the political border splits the old city in two. The inner streets are but narrow alleys; many of the houses are old and protected by law, but very often neglected. The occupied Nicosia, here called Levkosa, is north of the dividing Green Line. Wheres previously there was only one border crossing in Nicosia, whereonly tourists where allowed to cross, now both Cypriots and tourists can now cross by presenting their passports or Identity Cards The Greek new city in the south is modern and lively, Levkosa is traditional in style and facilities. There are several gothic structures and sights, as Selimiye and the Bedesten Mosque or the Lapidary Museum. There is also a number of Ottoman style public buildings, such as the Arabahmet Mosque, Han (Great Inn) or the Kumarcilar Han (Gamblers Inn).
