Few words about Nicosia

Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, is the world’s only remaining split capital. The Nicosia neighbourhood combines its cultural legacy with a modern style of living. The capital is rich in history, with massive Venetian walls around a picturesque ancient city. There is also a museum with some incredible relics from ancient times. Its items include a sculpture of Aphrodite of Soli from the first century A.D. and the original mosaic of Leda and the swan, as well as objects reflecting Nicosia’s history from another museum (Leventis Museum). The new city grows into a modern European-influenced hub of buildings, offices, sidewalk cafes, and stores. Nicosia is a wonderful shopping destination, particularly Stassicratous Street.
