“Nicosia from above”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

Museum gives you basic information on history of Nicosia and great 360 view. You can see both Greek part of Nicosia and occupied part. Recommending to go when air is clean and an hour before sunset.

“Great Way to Get Your Bearings”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

I only had a short time in the old town as I was in Nicosia on business. The tower is a great way to see where all the sites are. There are maps and descriptions to describe what you are seeing from the 11th floor windows. Ther eis also a short historical film.

Reviewed 30 August 2014

Rise above the commercial streets and politics and get some amazing views across the city from nearby mosques to distant mountains

“Great way to see Nicosia”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

This is a must for any visitor to Nicosia !

Not only can you see the ancient and new parts of the city. You can also learn the history of what you looking at in a "New" modern way.

“Panoramic view of nicosia free and occupied”
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.
