This is a very charming little place in the heart of a not-so-charming city. Many artists have established little studios here and sell their paintings, jewellery, ornaments, and keepsakes. The only place which made visiting Nicosia worthwhile to me, otherwise I would have been frustrated that I wasted the day. Bought beautiful handmade but inexpensive jewellery from a lovely lady...

The food (mixed kebab) was just fine but the service was slow - even for Cyprus ( I am a resident). Probably better when not as busy but i would still eat there again. Absolutley fascinating setting.

Visited this place in July in the Turkish sector of Nicosia. The Buyuk Han ( translated into English "The Grand Inn") with its historical courtyard filled with social eateries and coffee shops where Cypriots and visitors meet for a morning coffee and a chat, resting those feet after or before shopping. If peckish try the puff pastries filled with Hellim... More

Built in the 16th cent by the Ottoman governor of Cyprus this is one of the best things Nicosia has to offer (including both parts). It is in the northern Turkish part, 5 min walk after the Ledra crossing point. Built as a classic Turkish inn and middle ages guest house, it resembles that time Turkish architecture greatly preserved until... More

Located on the Turkush side 5 minute walk from the ledra street crossing. Signposted at the ring of seats 100m from the turkish passport check. If you don't want your passpirt stamped, fill out a white paper :-) well and truly worth the visit. The courtyardbis dotted with cafes with cheap eats .

It's a traditional old Han (horse parking and motel). These days there's cafes and souvenir shops. Also you can see the traditional water pond where horses used to drink water out of.

You should visit and try Cypriot Coffee. Yo can also eat a local dessert, "Sulu Muhallebi" in here. There are wonderful shops around and in the Han. You need to spent 2 hours at least for touristic trip.
