Ledra Street Crossing Point, Nicosia

(3.2/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Ledra Street Crossing Point presents a division of one capital city among two countries. Lined with passport controls, the site provides insight into the turbulent past and present of the region. Featuring Greek-Cypriot streets, people, and culture one side and Turkish-Cypriot markets, beliefs, and lifestyle on the other, the crossing point is a rare place where you can switch between two significantly different worlds in a matter of minutes. If you are going to spend time with the locals, it's best to skip political talk on either side.

  • Transit to the crossing point can only be done with Passport. You exit from Europe and you come into a country with very different characteristics. The southern part of Nicosia is the Orthodox Christian North, separate from this crossing point is a Muslim. The few meters separating the two sections of the city are a gate which carries in two significantly different cultural backgrounds. If you have your Passport with you cross the gap that separates these souls of the city

  • If you pass the border post did you get the idea that you compared the Cypriot part in another world. A very different street scene. A very different experience. And. ... They drive on the right instead of left as at the Cyrpische part. That was a whole separate observation.

  • When gawp it Street main and of soon arrive to the point of crossing is when you start to give account of the reality Cypriot. Cross is a mere formality, but the meters that separate the two parties begin to sink you. When you finally get to the Turkish side and begin to discover it is when reality slaps you face. Outside the main area (which is easily recognizable) everything changes. It is shocking that in three meters you can spend in a more or less cosmopolitan Street to a visibly impoverished area. I recommend it highly, simply to be aware of a not well known reality.
