    This Cathedral dates from the 13th century, its particular attraction being the fact that today is on the side of Turkish Cyprus in the island of Cyprus, reason for which is now a mosque. Excellent construction. A place to enjoy and respect by the meaning that has for two cultures.

    The architecture and details on the walls by the main entrance reminded me of Kolner Dom. Quite a piece of art. Feels strange to see it near a mosque, but well... history happens.  more »

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.
