Nicosia

Trip Planner Europe  /  Cyprus  /  Nicosia District  /  Nicosia

the last divided capital

Experience a combination of traditional and modern Cyprus, including archaeological sites encircled by ancient walls, in the country's capital, Nicosia. Though landlocked, the capital serves as a tourist destination and boasts buildings and monuments from many different empires. Behind Venetian walls lies the old town, which includes the Cyprus museum--complete with Roman and Neolithic finds--and an abundance of churches, mosques, and other structures. While it is often called "the last divided capital," the city's reputation is slowly changing with the times. On the other side of the walls, you'll find Nicosia's blooming cultural cafe scene. Add Nicosia and other destinations to your itinerary using our Cyprus trip planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay in Nicosia

Despite being the country's capital, Nicosia is not as geared toward tourists as the resorts on Cyprus' sunny coast. Hotels tend to be geared toward business travelers but provide a comfortable stay. Renting a vacation apartment may be preferable option for many, as they enable you to live more like locals. The greater Nicosia area spreads far and wide, so stay near the old city to access the most popular attractions, bars, and restaurants on foot. For an economical option, look for lodging on the north side of the city.
