The last divided capital


We drive alongside the buffer zone of Nicosia the last divided capital in Europe.
We enter the old city within the Venetian walls, and we see the Famagusta gate, the Archbishop's palace grounds, the monument of Liberty and the St. John's Cathedral with its colorful frescoes, the old folk neighborhood with winding alleys lined with shops and galleries where the atmosphere of the small lanes of the city still radiate a touch of the past.
We walk the Ledra pedestrian street and cross over the checkpoint of Nicosia and walk through the winding bazaar street, which leads to the old caravansary and harborage Buyuk Han where travelers spent a night in the old times.
Our tour will continue to Agia Sofia church (Selimiye Mosque) and the closed market. An overview of the ancient walled city and how it has evolved through the centuries will be given.

This fascinating tour gives special emphasis to the town's impressive architecture- from medieval years times.
* Please bring your passport.
