Nicosia – ancient city on the ancient island

Winter gives the capital a special chic, because blossoms of all the colors on the streets – this is the most beautiful decoration of the city’s unstoppable pace.  When you only open the door in the morning – you just pick up a wave of scents, it carries you in some magical world. Where jasmine, orange and lemon trees are flowering.

The most famous spot in the city – central bus station – The Solomos Square.

It’s always crowded here, noisy, lots of tourists and workers waiting for the bus to all points of the island.

You can buy a ticket directly on the bus, and the driver will surely help you with the info about the final stop.

On the main street Ledras you’ll find lots of locals enjoying their favorite cold coffee on the terraces of cafes.

The architecture of the city impresses with the contrast of old and new, classics and modern.

Ubiquitous cats delight tourists with their presence and undoubtedly expect caresses and feeding.

 

A very few people guests of the city know that strolling along the main street of the old historic district  you can take the second turn and get right into a narrow alley -you’ll find yourself in the beautiful world of age-old architecture and modern murals.

Mostly visitors think that Nicosia is an ordinary business capital with a small historical center and leave without knowing the spirit of this interesting city!

But in real, behind every turn on the narrow streets hides an incredible history, the border with another state, a museum of motorcycle, museum of dresses, of folk life, secret restaurants in dilapidated walls and much more … But that all opens only to the most curious travelers who open their hearts to meet the ancient Nicosia.

 

You are kindly welcome to enjoy the city with us!
