Places of Interest

Kyrenia (Girne) City :

Historians disagree about how old exactly Girne is, but it goes back to at least 10th Century BC and is one of the nine kingdoms of Cyprus.  Its great attraction for visitors lies not only in the Castle and enchanting harbour and ancient city itself, but also in the old villages, castles and monasteries which are to be found in the neighbourhood.  Its scenic setting is unmatched throughout the length and breadth of the island.  With Kyrenia itself, you can find a variety of cafes, discos, bars, restaurants and casinos.

 

Nicosia (Lefkosa) City :

Nicosia, the 1000 year old capital of both North Cyprus and the ROC without a doubt should be on every visitor’s agenda. Capital since the era of “Richard the Lion Heart”, it is the only divided capital in Europe; split by the famous “Green Line”. It lies approximately in the centre of the island, within easy reach of other towns and attractions.  

Its ancient roots date back to 3rd century BC when it was founded by the Egyptian Prince Lefkon, still immortalised in the capitals name; Lefkosa (in Turkish) and Lefkosia (in Greek).  A walk through the old city is to step back in time. Narrow streets and old houses with a mixture of beautiful architecture from past civilizations, intertwined with modern contemporary buildings, and craftsmen in small workshops that still practice trades unchanged for centuries makes Lefkosa a unique experience.  

        

Famagusta (Gazimagusa) City :

Originally a small fishing town, Famagusta flourished during the Lusignan (Frankish) period, when it became the most   important trading centre between Asia and Europe. Its importance and wealth can still be seen today by the vast amount of churches, cathedrals and palaces that dot the city. It is known that one of the nobles of Gazimagusa was one of the richest men in the world, for his daughter had more jewels that the King of France!  An interesting, yet sad, feature of the city is an area called Varousha - this was the modern part of the city that was the main tourist centre prior to 1974.  It is now an abandoned area in no-man’s land and is as it was left during those troubled times. The golden sandy beaches of Gazimagusa are well known throughout the world and it is still an important centre for tourism today.
