We went to Ledra street. It was packed with people from different races, religions and countries. Nice way to spend time. We ate at a Greek restaurant.

It feels like revisiting the cold war and crossing check point Charlie in Berlin! Worth crossing if you are in Nicosia. Do not forget to bring your passport.

This crossing point is ok, but there is nothing special about it. There was a big queue on the Turkish side. Bring your passports.

You can walk over to the Turkish side of Lefkosia and have a look around- as long as you bring your passport/ ID card.

We went across on the Ledra Palace crossing and then back via the Ledra street crossing. The palace option gives you more dereliction to see...amazing villas trapped in the barbed wire zone. How much longer ? Very calm no mans land zone. The shopping street...More
