Lefkoşa

The capital city of Cyprus is Nicosia, Lefkosa in Turkish. It is the only divided capital city in the world with 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 and a small city kingdom circa 1050BC the town came to prominence after the Arab raids of the 7th century AD devastated the coastal towns and villages. Under Lusignan rule the city developed culturally and commercially, expanding as the need arose. Many mansions, palaces, churches and other ecclesiastical buildings were built up to the late 15th C, until the Venetian takeover of 1478. Realisation that the spread of the Ottoman Empire would inevitably take in the strategic island of Cyprus prompted the Venetian rulers to take such action as they considered necessary to thwart any siege. The cities were all reduced in circumference and reinforced with massive walls. and by 1567 the massive walls that we see today had been completed. Total reinforcement was not finalised when the Ottoman forces arrived with a great army in 1570 and 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 great catholic cathedral was sacked and all its sacred relics and statues smashed.. Once the blood lust of war had passed the cathedral was swiftly turned into a mosque and it is still the most important mosque in North Cyprus. Under Ottoman rule Nicosia continued to be the capital city and underwent more disasters both man-made and natural.  In 1835 an outbreak of cholera killed a large proportion of the city population and in 1857 a fire seriously damaged many of the fine remaining buildings. In 1878 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 barracaded with barbed wire holds a certain facination to many visitors, the ugly corrigated 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 centurys, while in the Southern sector the medieval city is neglected, the heart of the city has moved to the high rise suberbs of the modern city. In April 2008 the barrier in central Nicosia were parcially 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.
