Nicosia Travel Guide: 324 reviews and 786 photos


Turkish Cypriots call this city "Lefkosha", Greek Cypriots call "Lefkosia" but in English it is called "Nicosia".

Nicosia is the center and capital of an administrative district (Nicosia District), and after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it is currently the only divided capital city in the world, with the northern (Turkish) and southern (Greek) portions divided by the "Green Line".

It is a city which is full of anciant and medieval remains. Also it has got nice selection of Venetian, English and Ottoman architecture.


Lidya was exploring the city :)


I like to being in Grand Inn Nicosia, also Lidya does :)
