NICOSIA (Cyprus)

Nicosia, also called Lefkosia, is not just a capital, but it is also the historic pulse of the island of Cyprus. The Green Line divides the country in two: the northern side is the capital of Northern Cyprus whereas the south is the capital of the Republic of Cyprus. The scars of its past conflicts are unmistakeable and the fact that is the last divided capital in the world makes some of the areas a bit shabby.

However, it is rich in culture and history both inside and outside its walls. The relative lack of tourists makes the Old City more authentic than the southern part of the country. It is the perfect spot for shopping or for trying the traditional Cypriot coffee.
