About Nicosia

Since ancient times, Nicosia was desired by various civilizations, who always understood the location of the island of Cyprus as a strategic enclave between Asia and Europe. This is how Mycenaeans, Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, Ottomans, and British have occupied the island and its capital city. Consequently, this melting pot of races has given the town a unique imprint over time, which today is reflected in its culture and architecture.

To better understand the city's division today, we must go back to 1974, when the island's population was divided into Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots. This division continues to exist and is latent in the city, which has two different administrations and the intervention of the United Nations in any conflict.

Today many people decide to live in the capital of Cyprus. And this decision is made for multiple reasons. To begin with, Nicosia is the financial and economic centre of the island, as well as political and cultural. Therefore, the main decisions are made here, and many need to be in the nerve centre of the island. However, that does not take away the opportunity to live in the main places of the city, such as Ledras Street. These are the city's main streets and the leading shops and restaurants located within its ancient walls.

For its part, the proximity to the Famagusta Gate and the Venetian Walls are also ideal places to live, where spacious residences and buildings are chosen by many Cypriots and foreigners as places of residence. As we well know, Byzantine churches and monasteries shine at every step we take in Nicosia. And this is how we admire ourselves with places like the Cathedral of San Juan, in Venetian style and built in the 14th century.
