Ledra Street Crossing Point, Nicosia

3.2
#2 of 46 in Shopping in Cyprus
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.

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.
