Nicosia – known also as Lefkoşa, the capital city of TRNC as well as the Republic of Cyprus, is the only capital left in the world where south and north parts are divided by the “green line”; a demilitarized zone maintained by the United Nations.
The inland position of Nicosia is midway between the mountain ranges, just in the center of the Mesaoria Plain and has made this a meeting point from all parts of the island. Originally called Ledra, the city was founded in ancient times and did not develop until the Lusignan Era. Today, the city is full of dizzying labyrinth of narrow, old streets and lovely places inviting you for a Turkish, traditional cup of tea.
