Ghost Town Famagusta, Famagusta
(3.4/5 based on 440+ 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 unusual, instructive and the impressive history of the place. A view of the abandoned and looted Hotels makes a lasting impression. Especially combined with the sea and the beach. Say everything behind barbed wire, you cannot take pictures, but many of these warning pregebregajut.
