Interesting crossing point from the greek Nicosia to the Turkish occupied territory of the north. Must present passports to cross back and forth since there is a tight control. A UN buffer zone keeps both sides separated.

Ledra Street is the modern type checkpoint Charlie crossing from the Greek Cypriot to the Turkish Cypriot side of Nicosia. The border post officials are totally disinterested on their function and it seems to be automated without a smile or acknowledged greeting. The difference between...More

Its incredibly easy to cross between the borders and on both sides there is nothing to be alarmed by as a tourist. The checks take no more than a few minutes and when you look at the street both sides look pretty identical and you...More

If you want to see UN peacekeepers with blue berets, experience the reality of the world's only divided capital city and see the Northern side of Nicosia then this is the way to do it. Our children were fascinated by walking through "no man's land"...More
