  • Amazing Byzantine Museum! The richest collection of icons, many of which date back to the 13rd century. Perfectly preserved. In the kartinnojt Gallery of the Fund also are paintings of masters. Almost all of them have no authorship, but treated with various schools-Italian, Flemish, German. Tickets cost 4 euros. Be sure to visit! plan to spend at least two hours. Please note that the Museum closes at 16.00 on weekdays and only works up to 13 in Saturday.

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.
