Excellent views across Nicosia and able to see the big flag on the side of the mountain. Informative short film and historical timeline of events available to see. Lovely and cool too!
Great piece of fore thought for this building, it can give a clear picture of the city, its history and you can see the border including “no mans land”. This building helped gauge my visit and helped me gather my bearings, which was very useful for a city we’ve never visited before, there modern interactive boards and old school read them yourself info. Fully recommend and don’t forget to watch the TV show at the top.
