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. Large Venetian walls encircle the historical centre of the capital, which is surrounded by a lovely ancient city. There is also a museum with some incredible relics from ancient times.
