The Buzz of the Capital
Nicosia district

Nicosia around the clock

A place of striking contrasts, Nicosia is a city where history brilliantly befriends modernity. One minute, contemporary architecture may be commanding attention, while the next, centuries old Venetian walls will be crying out to greet you in majestic fashion. Combining museums, good shopping, fabulous dining, and a wealth of history in the mix, there is much to keep you entertained from morning to night.

The centre of the old town encircled by grandiose Venetian walls has recently undergone massive regeneration as old and new sit side by side in perfect unison. With a great mix of tradition and all things contemporary, young and old descend upon the buzzing hub for a fix of all things foodie, arty, and of course, their beloved daily caffeine fix.
