"N i c o s i a" Nicosia District by Eric-Sabin

Nicosia District Travel Guide: 334 reviews and 869 photos

Nicosia is a very lively and generally warm city, located in the center of Cyprus. I spent a couple hours here sight seeing and people watching.

The man in this picture is Ataturk, the first president of Turkey. He is the man who converted Turks from the Arabic alphabet to the Latin alphabet. He also did away with the head scarfs and the black burkas that women used to wear and also did away with the fes (sp?) that men used to wear. He was very modern and wanted Turkey to belong in with the European countries. He was never married and died of cirrhosis of the liver due to too much alcohol.
