The facade of Ledra Palas hotel was saddening. However there is a UN building in no man's land where you can get a freshly brewed coffee. There are peace volunteers who can tell you the actual situation of peace negotiations. If there will be a peace in Cyprus, it should be preserved as a monument for showing people the real... More

Goint across to the Turkish side was easy, not much of a queue. The sudden change in surroundings was disorienting - no more signs in greek (or english) and no bright shop fronts!

Not so many people in line; the process is really easy and it takes around 1 minute. Especially with a Romanian ID card as we are very well known in the area and always had great relations with them. Feels weird as you walk down to the Turkish part, all gates and doors are very well locked and everything looks... More

Make sure you have your passport / ID card with you. You walk along a normal shopping pedestrian area, and then in the middle is a Greek border control point. Show your pass, walk 50m though no mans land and then you reach the Turkish Check point. Once through you carry on shopping as before but with a very Turkish... More

Believe or not, one of the main reasons to visit Cyprus was to pass the border which divides one city between to nations.All over the Cyprus side refers to the turkish side as "occupied territories" and do me a favor:do not ask the Cypriots about touristic monuments across the border! The crossing went smoothly -you must have a valid passport... More

The reason for the 1 star is that this crossing is as a result of the division of Cyprus following the Turkish invasion of 1974. It could be argued that at least the crossing allows the movement of people, nevertheless, it's a sad part to Cyprus' troubled history.

We decided to go into the north on a Sunday. Arriving in Nicosia we knew to access the car parks for Lidras St we had to enter the city walls. We saw the monument of the boy and drove through there. We found the lidras St underground parking and as I had been told we would be adjacent to mac... More
