Ghost Town Famagusta, Famagusta

3.6
See Ghost Town Famagusta, a former Mediterranean resort with hundreds of hotels and houses that's been completely abandoned since 1974. In the heart of the world's only divided capital city lies this post-war buffer zone. An empty airport still has its crumbling airplanes, and the seafront features golden sand with no one to sunbathe. Tour the empty streets of the ghost town and see abandoned homes. Look out for a 13th-century medieval cathedral with well-preserved Gothic architecture, which became a mosque in 1571. Wear comfortable shoes since you'll do plenty of walking. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Famagusta holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ghost Town Famagusta and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
