Within its boundaries, Cyprus offers a microcosm of history, Cyprus was always a
stepping stone to faraway places and culture after culture has left its footprints,
and today Cyprus offers an unrivalled mix of landscapes, history and culture. The
atmosphere in Northern Cyprus is relaxed and friendly and the people are by nature
easygoing and the relentless aggravating hassling of foreigners by street vendors
and shop keepers rampant in other parts of the Mediterranean is blissfully absent.
In fact you will find that local people go to great lengths to ensure that visitors
Northern Cyprus with its slow development and wide range of natural habitats is home
to many species of wildlife, for botanists or birdwatcher it is a treasure trove.
Plant species alone number 1,600 with each season bringing a fresh selection of flowers
and fruits, Cyprus is also home to 347 species of bird and a variety of snakes and
reptiles. Sea turtles attract considerable attention and both the loggerhead and
the green turtles journey to Cyprus to lay their eggs on the safe sandy beaches and
strict guidelines are in place to protect these beautiful creatures.
The capital city of Cyprus is Nicosia, Lefkosa in Turkish. It is the only divided
capital city in the world and has a long and colourful history. The inland position,
midway between the mountain ranges has made this a meeting point from all parts of
the island. Originally called Ledra it was a small city kingdom circa 1050BC the
town came to prominence after the Arab raids of the 7th century AD Under Lusignan
rule the city developed culturally and commercially, expanding as the need arose.
Realisation that the spread of the Ottoman Empire would inevitably move to the strategically
placed island of Cyprus, the cities defenses were all reinforced with massive walls,
and by 1567 the walls that we see today had been completed. In 1570 the Ottomans
attacked the city, the siege of Nicosia lasted six weeks at the end of which time
20,000 inhabitants had died and the city had been laid waste. The city was rebuilt
and remained under Ottoman rule until 1878 when the British Government was granted
a lease on the island by the Sultan of Turkey, it was a politically expedient exercise
giving the British Government a foothold in the Eastern Mediterranean from where
they could keep track on what was going through the recently opened Suez Canal. The
events of 1964 saw the barrier erected across the city centre as a prelude to the
ultimate division of the whole island into two parts in 1974. The sight of streets
barricaded with barbed wire holds a certain fascination too many visitors, the ugly
corrugated iron barrier cuts right through the heart of the city. The differences
between the Northern and Southern Nicosia is vast, the Turkish sector has retained
the life and bustle within the walls, with its maze of back streets just as it has
been for century’s, while in the Southern sector the medieval city is neglected,
the heart of the city has moved to the high rise suburbs of the modern city. In April
2008 the barrier in central Nicosia were partially opened and the Ledra Street/Lokmaci
crossing opened to permit the free crossing into both parts of their capital city.
A significant move in the process towards a long lasting reunification and peace
has been achieved.

you will not be disappointed, Kyrenia offers a vast array of shopping outlets including
a traditional outdoor market that provides everything you could possibly need from
Cypriot antiques and souvenirs to designer fashions. In its old days Kyrenia harbour
was mainly warehouses where exporters stored the vegetable and fruits of the countryside

and souvenir shops as well as cafe bars with tables along the sparkling sea. Kyrenia
harbour is a great place for a drink and a meal, do not forget to try Turkish coffee.
