  • The collections in this museum are WONDERFUL. There are so many beautiful icons! The best parts are the reconstructed dome-mosaics and frescoes though, absolutely stunning. Also impressive displays on how these were stolen/illegally trafficked from the northern part of Cyprus. However - the museum itself is a bit old-fashioned. Interpretation options are not great and it is unclear where to go/what parts to see, etc.
  • Excellent collection of Byzantine art and artefacts. Exceptional, especially if you have visited some of the UNESCO Byzantine churches found in Cyprus where some of the exhibits were coming from.
  • Wonderful icons exhibited.
  • Very nice
  • Nice place!!

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.
