collageTravel Nicosia
by HAMZA

Nicosia, the 1000-year-old capital of Cyprus, lies roughly at the center of the island, with a rich history that can be traced back to the Bronze Age. Today it blends its historic past brilliantly with the hustle and bustle of a modern city. The heart of the city, enclosed by 16th century Venetian walls, is dotted with museums, ancient churches and medieval buildings preserving the nostalgic atmosphere of the past. Yet this old heart is split in two, leaving Nicosia the only capital city in the world to remain divided by force. The new city developed outside the walls has become a contemporary, business and cultural center. Just a few miles away are enchanting places of interest such as Byzantine churches and monasteries, archaeological sites and charming villages. The old walled city of Nicosia is unique and definitely the place to head for first. Encircled by strong fortress walls built by the Venetians in the 16th century, the enchanting old city is scattered with buildings and monuments of historical interest as well as little shops, cafés and taverns. The Nicosia Jewels Museum and the Municipal Arts Center are both well worth a visit. To walk through the old city is to step backwards in time. Narrow streets and old houses with ornate balconies jut from weather beaten sandstone walls, smell of jasmine flowers in those long summer evenings, and craftsmen in small workshops practice trades unchanged for centuries. Laiki Yitonia (Folk Neighborhood) is a must-see pedestrian section that has been carefully renovated to evoke the atmosphere of past days.
