    An almost 1000 year old church, built in the middle of a forest. Beuautiful murals inside. Serene location, with some restaurants close by and a camping ground a bit further.  more »

    On the way to the Troodos Mountains we stopped at the Church, which is under the auspices of UNESCO-Asinu Church. Outside it was repaired, but inside were stunning frescoes. The Church consists of two parts, one of which was sitting in the guard, who was not allowed to take pictures. So I managed to shoot only in one part of the Church. Unable to take a picture of a mural with the 40 martyrs, whom the Romans drove on the ice. Definitely worth a visit.

    No wonder this amazing church is on UNESCO list. A must see place for someone who would like to go back 100 years and imagine yourself praying inside this stone built walls. Very much recommended place !

    The monastery was founded in 1099 by the master Nikiforo Ischyrio who then became a monk.

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.
