Ledra Street Crossing Point, Nicosia

#1 of 8 in Shopping in Nicosia
Ledra Street Crossing Point presents a division of one capital city among two countries. Lined with passport controls, the site provides insight into the turbulent past and present of the region. Featuring Greek-Cypriot streets, people, and culture one side and Turkish-Cypriot markets, beliefs, and lifestyle on the other, the crossing point is a rare place where you can switch between two significantly different worlds in a matter of minutes. If you are going to spend time with the locals, it's best to skip political talk on either side.

  • The green line between Greek Cyprus and the occupied north is very small here, just a few empty houses, and the passing is easy. However it makes you very sad to see the poor northern part of the city...  more »
  • Were with a tour in Nicosia, in the cathedral, the walls of which are covered with wonderful frescoes. Recommend!!! And then we took a walk along the famous Lydra Street. There are a lot of shops and cafes on the street. But the most interesting thing is that it leads to one of the checkpoints, where you can go from the Republic of Cyprus to the territory of the unrecognized northern Turkish Republic. Nicosia is the only city in the world divided into two parts. This border of separation is also called the Attila line or the green line. (with a must-have passports) And for some 5 minutes you get from the style of European to turkish flavor. At 7 minutes. You can see the Ottoman-era buildings, Bayuk Khan and the Semilie Mosque.
