Attraction details
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

There is 2 euros entrance, is at leedras street, they have binoculars if you would like to see more clearly far. Audio and video with the history of nicosia is accompanied, they have screens to explain what is what. If you are local you have to visit it at least one time.

I expected a crowded place and dirty windows (you are not outside when you visit the observatory plarform), but the windows were clean, so we could make pictures, ther airco was on, and there were good information panels

We have the chance to visit this observatory every time we have some new visitors. This panoramic view with explanations is most helpful and pleasant.

I have been here four times now and the views never get any less impressive. To access the observatory you must go to Debenhams on Ledras Street and make your way to the 11th floor. You must change elevators on the 6th floor in the cafe. The entrance fee is €2 and is well worth it. There are great 360 degree views of the city, although not much time is needed here - it can be done in around 15 minutes. Nice for a break from the shopping and busy high street below. Souvenirs can also be bought there.

Went on a day trip to Nicosia from Aiya Napa while on holiday. I crossed the border into Turkey and managed to squeeze the Observatory in. So glad I did. Brilliant views from the large picture windows and great touch screen information systems. There's a side entrance to the lift at the side of Debenhams to avoid the crowds and takes you directly to the 11th floor. Well worth the 2 euro entrance fee.
