Ghost Town Famagusta, Famagusta
(3.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
See Ghost Town Famagusta, a former Mediterranean resort with hundreds of hotels and houses that's been completely abandoned since 1974. In the heart of the world's only divided capital city lies this post-war buffer zone. An empty airport still has its crumbling airplanes, and the seafront features golden sand with no one to sunbathe. Tour the empty streets of the ghost town and see abandoned homes. Look out for a 13th-century medieval cathedral with well-preserved Gothic architecture, which became a mosque in 1571. Wear comfortable shoes since you'll do plenty of walking. Put Ghost Town Famagusta and other Famagusta attractions into our Famagusta itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very depressing, just from the coast can be something to see. In the time I have to fade and rot away alongside. Extinct, creepy hotels, fencing. Keep, but it would be preferable to military clean-up or a short walk to enable tourists, if you had not dózerolják. Only you could access tubon, that what is inside the fence.
