  The Liberation Monument
by easyoar

Apparently this monument is no longer mentioned in the official tourist guides of the southerly part of Nicosia. It is considered a controversial monument even amongst the Greeks in the South.

The monument symbolises Greek Cypriots being released from prison by two armed soldiers.

This monument is located in a very quiet part of the city, on top of one of the walls bastions. It is not uncommon to see tourists standing in amongst the statues having their picture taken with the monument.

Directions: On top of the nearest Bastion to the Archbishops Palace

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
